The Metrodome collapse got all the press in the United States, but it wasn’t the only stadium affected by snow this year. For the second time this year, Germany’s Veltins-Arena, home of the UEFA soccer club FC Schalke 04, caved in under the weight of snow.  The damage has been estimated at roughly $130k. 

The collapse forced Veltins-Arena to cancel the World Biathlon Challenge which was set to begin on Thursday.
