Rare heavy snowfall closes Eiffel Tower

Feb 8, 2018

Skiers took to the steep streets of Montmartre as the heaviest snowfall in 30 years brought commuter misery to Paris, stranding travellers, delaying trains and flights, and bringing the bus network to a standstill.

The stunning scenes of the French capital coated in white powder delighted tourists but offered little consolation to the millions who struggled to get to work or school or catch a flight at the city’s airports.

Up to six inches of snow fell on the city and much of northern France after the clouds opened on Tuesday afternoon and kept the flakes falling until well after dawn on Wednesday.
