When I arrived yesterday at Zurich from Rome on LX 1737 we were one hour late because of the heavy snowfall. We taxied from r/w 14 to the E-gates (and stopped next to the brand new LX 343 HB-JMG), but then when we wanted to get of the aircraft, we had to wait several minutes and nothing happened. Suddenly the Captain apologized that they could not bring the "jetty" to the aircraft because of the snow, it was too slippery, the wheels were spinning. Fortunatly we were on a Avro ARJ 100 with built in stairs. We went down then stairs and walked through the snow to the building. Not all passengers found it funny but I liked it.
By the way it took me less then 10 minutes from the E-gates to the baggage claim (inkl customs), this is much better than from the outer A-gates.
