When the snow accumulates on the wings of an aeroplane, the upper surface of the wing becomes flat. It means the curvature of the surface decreases. Pressure difference which causes the lift off of the Aeroplane depends on the curvature of the wing. So, due to the decrease in curvature, the lift off of the aeroplane also decreases.
