Winter and the invisible runway

Recommended Posts

For obvious reasons, I forgot about this until now.I'm taxiing onto a runway, and as I look perpendicular to it, it's lovely and visible. But when I turn onto it - looking straight down it, it turns solid white. This is obviously only when it's cold enough for snow.It's also completely unusable this way. Looking for the runway when landing with 700' overcast in a snow storm is nearly impossible, and they have such awful lighting that there are no lights in the day.Anyone have a fix for this runway problem? I don't remember if anyone did.
