One suggestion made in the vote/discussion, to which I concur, is to tag 
the highway as covered=yes, and include a polygon structure, tagged as 
man_made=snowshed, similar to the manner one might tag a way or area 
covered by a building. This is appropriate, since the snowshed is a 
visible, above ground, structure (at least during warmer times of the year).
