"A planned World Snow Day event at the Glenshee Ski Centre on Sunday has been cancelled."
"The Lecht ski centre in Strathdon, Aberdeenshire, was closed on Saturday due to heavy snow on the access roads."
If im being honest we dont deal with it as bad as people try to make out. Heavy falling snow causes trouble in any country. We may not have things fully open as fast as places that deal with regular snowfall etc or have the full range of snow clearing equipment as say the Scandinavian counties, but...why do we need too? Our dusturbances are short and sharp theirs are prolonged. Better to just suck it up for a few days each year.
From the travelling ive done I personally don't think we do too bad. Try a Spanish city if you want to see chaos worse than us. Also, ive seen cities like Amsterdam grind to a halt with a couple of inches of snow I was there just before Christmas and witnessed it for about the 3rd time. I think we just like to moan a lot in this country.
I find this in bloody poor taste the day 4 people die in an avalanche!
Don't be melodramatic. You have no right in bringing that subject up. This has nothing to do with what happend yesterday.
