    Actually, if the snow is too deep, you can't land because the gear will fail. The guys at the Durango FBO were telling me that back in the '80s a Metroliner got a bad snow report (told 1/4th inch when actually 4 inches), when the nosewheel touched down, the force from plowing through the snow caused it to snap off.

    Landing On Snow...

    Is this a difficult procedure? After driving & riding in the snow, its rather difficult to go in a straight line half the time... how easy is it for pilots to keep an aircraft going down the centre line in a blizzard?
