Top best answers to the question «Can planes land in snow showers»

That's because when there's a lot of ice or snow on an airport runway, planes can't safely taxi, take-off or land. Just like with your car, icy conditions can reduce traction for a plane's landing gear… After a heavy snowfall, a loss of traction can lead to hydroplaning or other challenging and dangerous effects.
