I will say that anytime I've ever flown out of DIA and there's been snow, they ALWAYS seem to clear it up and get us off the ground quickly. So this is really cool!
According to Fox31:
Denver International Airport is taking home a prestigious award for the second year in a row.
DIA received the Balchen/Post Award, a national award recognizing airports for swift and efficient snow and ice removal while keeping airport operations running.
DIA won in the large commercial airports category. DIA’s 53-square-mile domain is the country’s largest commercial airport in land mass. The airport manages snow removal on six runways, 300 lane miles of roads and over 23 football fields worth of parking space.
Over 500 employees work at DIA to remove snow each winter season, with the airfield only closing six times in 26 years of operation.
DIA has won the Balchen/Post Award three times total in the last five years for excellent snow and ice removal.
