Other towers have flat roofs where snow is evenly accumulated in winter. But under the dome of the Western Tower a restaurant is located, the snow will melt under the influence of the heat that comes from below and a huge mass of ice will sooner or later fall down right to the parking lot intended for visitors of the restaurant.

Ground service employees and mountain climbers work together. They close the parking lot but can’t ask visitors to leave the prestigious restaurant. Due to that the procedure of snow removal always starts later than it was planned. Thus, when it was planned to remove snow at midnight the last visitor left the restaurant at 2 a.m. only and the procedure was delayed.

  1. Are you kidding me? That’s the best they could come up with for one of the tallest buildings in the world? A bunch of climbers on the roof with shovels and blowers?

  2. Heaters could be installed on the roof to melt the ice and snow.There is a skyscraper in Denver Colorado USA that has heaters on its roof because it has a glass curve like the tower above.
