Let it snow
Fortune's Nelson Schwartz writes:
The Swiss may be known for their precision and efficiency, but not their high spirits.
But in the ski shops and stores of Davos this morning, the natives were as close as they come to ecstatic. Not because of the beginning WEF conference and its hordes (although they're always good for business), but because it finally snowed last night, blanketing the streets and surrounding mountains, and making the place look like Switzerland instead of Wales.
And Davos without skiing would be like Hawaii without sun. One WEF organizer told me she was bummed by the snow because she feared it would take away a bit of the urgency of the climate change discussion that's at the center of this year's agenda, but everyone else is ready to finally hit the slopes.
