Plows. Big big plows. Anyways you can just get the privates to do the shoveling, they need the exercise.

The Russians attach a modified jet exhaust to the radial compressor engine from decommissioned MiG-15s and MiG-17s and use the resulting snow blower to get rid of any ice or snow on the runway.

The Poles used a similar set up to clear snow and ice from railway tracks

Major let down after seeing the Russian way of doing it :Ps

unfortunately those pictures of the russian way are not circa 1939-1945.

Yeah you would make it look pretty and break down after one usage, or have a maintnace every day for safety as there would be 70% precent more probability to blow up due to "AMERICAN TECHNOLOGY!"
