Just for the record... I know not to mess with yellow snow :gsbrnint:

I've personally witnessed a lot of apocalyptic looking days as of late, but an orange snow event on such a mass scale would certainly throw me for a loop.

Orange snowstorm submerges tourist resorts with eerie 'apocalyptic' scenes. A FREAK WEATHER incident has struck at least four countries, turning white snow into an eerie orange shade that has left residents terrified about the cause.

Cities around Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Romania have all reported the bizarre orange snow phenomenon, videos of which have quickly gone viral.

Tourist destinations, including ski resorts, have been blanketed by the orange snow, which has turned snowy mountains into sand dunes. 

Several witnesses compared the scene to an "apocalyptic scenario" or something that resembled the surface of Mars.

Scientists have blamed the eerie snow tint, which varied from light yellow to intense orange and even brown, on a mix of sand and pollen.

Like a land-borne 'plankton bloom' type deal maybe? An organic component causing the colouration??

Also: A spokesman for the centre said the cause of the phenomenon was likely winds carrying sand from the Sahara, which then fell as rain

Although I may not always believe what others tell me, the above explanations seem reasonable. However, I really don't know...

Iron oxide from a debris field?

 

quote from the OP article:

"According to Russia's environmental watchdog at the time, the snow was reported to be "malodorous, oily and contain four times the normal level of iron".
