It's not really about the wind directions as much as it is about the convergence of the winds.

In general, the best wind direction for snow from around Houghton north is a little south of due west.

After that it just depends on what the local winds are doing and if there is some surface convergence to help enhance the lift and thus cloud/snow formation.
