Non-stop snow for eight hours – what is a dream for Alpine winter sport resorts is nightmare for an airport. It certainly is a considerable challenge for Frankfurt Airport, the largest commercial airport in Germany. Here, an area of around nine million square metres has to be cleared of snow.
Two special deposit spaces of 27,500m² (22,500 south and 5,000 north of the airport) are ready to take the cleared snow. Still, if snowfall continues for several hours it piles up and has to be continually kept in check by two high-performance snow groomers.
