Snow disasters are natural phenomena caused by large amounts of snowfall over a long period of time that cause widespread snow cover. Snow disasters mainly occur in stable snow-covered areas and unstable snow-covered mountainous regions and occasionally in transient snow areas. Snowstorms can cause traffic jams and damage to communication lines, affecting normal tourism activities.
