Rothera has a high snowfall during the late winter, so two large snow blowers are used to clear the runway and other important areas. These are Overaasen UTV 250 and UTV 300 snow blowers which are both carried on the front of the two JCB loading shovels.
Both machines can cut and blow snow up to 30 metres at a rate of up to 2,000 tonnes per hour. Personal transport around Rothera is by John Deere Gators. One of these has been fitted with tracks and a blade for use in snow clearing at Sky-Blu.
