I'd be inclined to plant a sturdy groundcover on the slope. It will be better able to tolerate piles of snow in the winter time and there are both low growing and tall growing groundcovers. If it's a sunny spot, plant creeping juniper, Ajuga (carpet bugle), or daylilies. Best wishes with your new garden!
