    Background: In the first heavy snowfall of the winter season, the mountain road was today impassable to cars without chains. Snowfalls were recorded to 400 metres above sea level, a record for the season. Although most of the ski fields have been closed during the nine-month long troubles in lebanon, optimists were expecting sportsmen to turn out in the next few days following the snowfall. None were sighted today, possibly because of poor visibility, and possibly because it was impossible to climb the mountain road anyway.
