Snow removal in rental contract

Are landlords in Arlington, MA allowed to include a requirement in the rental contract that tenants share responsibility with the landlord for snow removal from all shared and common exterior surfaces and entrances/exits (driveway, front and back steps, back porch, sidewalk)?

I don't think that arrangement is legal.  You can read this post regarding snow removal obligations of MA landlords and potential civil liability for a landlord's failure to remove snow and ice.
