Maybe some of the load was actually ice.

Subject: Rink roof collapse in Germany

 

Apparently, there are differing stories about just how much snow had built-up on the roof of the ice rink.  Not having designed any structures for snow loading, shouldn't this roof have held up to 1.5ft of snow, considering it's location?  I'd be curious to hear others...
