Alps are getting it deep

Mon 06 March 06

Last Saturday saw many airports across the Alps close, as heavy snow brought chaos to planes trains and automobiles.

airport sleeping manLeaving a resort when the snows falling is always painful, but last Saturday saw 5 hour tail backs on Austrian motorways, an almost total closure of Munich airport and loads of the white stuff cover the Alps. Those heading home were lucky to get away with a 12 hour delay, many had over 24, while those who’s planes did land found most resorts getting a good dump, on the already well covered slopes. More snow is forecast across the Alps towards the end of the week so get your arse on a plane or in the car and hope they can keep the roads and airports open. Good luck.
