Snow Removal is the Search the List category to find a contractor for that service = commonly (if doable with a truck-mounted plow, not by hand) around $25-100 per service call if done on a per-trip basis (and usually charged an additional trip if over 6 inches per snowfall) - I would suspect most areas runs about $35-50 per trip. Higher than that cost would be for areas with heavy snow, long drive, or where truckplows are prohibited from working in the street (like some larger cities) so it has to be done with a snowblower.

For for annual service (who get first priority on clearing) varies of course by area but around $250-400 for lower-snow areas and $400-600 for heavy snow areas and ones like the Great Lakes snow belt and upper Great Plains where you get a lot of snow-blown hard packed snow refilling drives, and on up to $1000 or more or so per year for longer drives and quite high snowfall areas or areas where it is a long ways between clients - like some rural upper midwest and mountain areas for instance. IF a pickup truck plow will not work because your drive is in a cut its whole length, you need the snow hauled off instead of just pushed off to the side (say due to hedge plantings down both sides of the drive) or you get so much snow it takes a grader or front-end loader or truck-mounted snow blower to handle it, then you are talking probably a couple to few hundred per visit or several thousand per year for a contract. Ditto if you have a lot of area needing cleared - very long drive, very large entry area parking, or want tennis courts or private hockey/skating rink or such cleared and blown clear every snowfall.
