Norway>Finland>Sweden>Denmark in falling order is my personal experience in how well the airports in the Nordics are able to clear snow and slush. The Danes are not that used to real winter-ops and it is quite possible they where caught out by some early snow and frost.

A mnemonic I was taught during groundschool still makes me smile and I still use it recounting the above...

I donít know what happened, I wasnít there, but Iím puzzled by the discussion about moving map displays and Ads B etc. ? Quite frequently taxiways are not as
well cleared or treated as Rwys and a little too much gspeed when exiting a Rwy can cause surprises but not in a good way !
