We have snow days but mostly they should be called "ice days". Mountains, curvy, hilly roads and ice do not mix with school buses. People here don't have chains or snow tires. The city doesn't have a boat load of plows either...just the bare minimum to keep the major roads clear. If you live out a bit you are stuck! But MOSTLY, ice is the issue.
The way we "get" the snow makes a difference too. We normally start with rain, turning to ice, then turning to snow. Doesn't make for great driving conditions.
