What does snow hunt mean?

Snow hunting is snowfall with little visibility

Snow especially causes problems when it blows hard, and when it freezes. With a wind force of 6 or higher, with snowfall and sight of less than 200 meters one speaks about a snow hunt. The drifting snow that arises leads to major nuisances in people's homes (cracks and holes are prone to snow) but especially in traffic there is a lot of trouble. The sight is poor, there are roads unreachable by accumulations of snow (snow dunes). In situations like this, the KNMI gives additional warnings and alarms again.
