This time of year, treasure can be found by eye in large parking lots, that have seen snow.

Look for where the large piles of snow were, after they melt treasures can be found.

Rings, and other valuables are dropped quietly in the slush, and pushed onto the piles.

Good Luck, post some pics.

I note areas snow is moved to when piles get too big in a nearby village and hit them now and then after thaw. Some areas are far removed from "normal " snow pile areas..
A hard life for items pushed and ground...
I get the usual reminder though that phones and other items are in those areas when we go shopping. She don't hunt them areas , but understands the logic...

It's a great idea. I've found coins and paper money that way. Also, in warmer weather, the fences around parking lots collect material, depending on which way the wind blows.

I always check the edges where the snow is melting away, as I'm walking to and from a store. It is a good idea.

One parking lot by me pushed all the snow to one area this year. Usually it's broken up into 3 or 4 piles. This year it was one mountain probably 15 to 20 feet high. Temps in the 70s this weekend might reduce the pile to a searchable size.

I live near a ski resort that hauls its excess snow to a Lot and piles it high...every years around Late April, springtime, as it starts melting, I-phone, ring, even wallets,Jewerly, Loose Change ( found $27.00 in change there last year) can be found around the melting hill. When the slopes melt the runs underneath the Chairs Lifts there's a lot of lost watches, ski equpiment(Smaller items), Loose Change and "illegal substances" unfortunatley. The Metal Detector is perfect for this hunting.
