Edinburgh have confirmed Saturday's Magners League match against Cardiff Blues at Murrayfield is scheduled to take place despite the recent adverse weather conditions.
The stadium's international pitch is in excellent condition and has benefited from the use of hi-tech "pitch growth lights" since the summer.
Regarding other aspects of the venue, spectator safety at Murrayfield is paramount and Edinburgh have received delivery of road salt in order to ensure the stadium is accessible for supporters.
Originally supporters were scheduled to watch the game from the East Stand, but this has now changed and reverted back to the West Stand because of safety issues and limited grit supplies.
Edinburgh chief executive Nic Cartwright praised the fact that Murrayfield has so far managed to avoid falling foul of the freezing winter weather and highlighted the stadium's world-class facilities.
Cartwright said: "With so many of this round's Magners League matches falling victim to the weather, we are proud of the fact that, barring any huge problems, our home match against Cardiff will go ahead.
"It shows that Murrayfield is a world-class stadium and means that our team's schedule will not be further disrupted by the snow. I would encourage fans to arrive at Murrayfield earlier than usual and to use public transport to and from the stadium.
