Posts from travelers on social media indicated that the snow was gritty and they weren't able to ski the slopes. No one specifically addressed the issue, but it's probably safe to assume the snow wasn't creamsicle-flavored.
The BBC reports this phenomenon occurs about once every five years, but the concentration of sand is higher than usual this year. The storms also caused an orange haze in Crete over the weekend.
Similar incidents have been recorded in the past. In 2007, an oily orange snow fell over Siberia. Last year, Hurricane Ophelia turned the sun and sky red over parts of the UK.
The Independent highlighted conflicting theories about the cause of the snow, noting local officials said a storm in Kazakhstan kicked up dust and clay and caused the discolored snow. Meanwhile, a Russia environmental watchdog suggested it was the result of pollution because the snow contains elevated levels of iron, acids, and nitrates.
