Poder: When to use present vs conditional tense

I'm struggling with when to use puede versus podría. In the sentence below, it feels like I could translate it as, Too much snow CAN damage your roof. Or should "could" always be translated in the conditional tense?

Too much snow could damage your roof. Demasiada nieve (podría/puede) dañar tu techo.
