Jo,
41a = snowy (take the odd letters from \"sun norway\" starting with the \"s\" of \"sun\"
38d = by-pass (by = next to and pass = ravine)
48d = hearten (anag of \"near the\"). lift can mean hearten.

Also, if you are the Jo who answered my 2 problem clues - many thanks,
John

Just out of interest, which Radio Times is this from as the clues in mine are completely different?

41A Light tractor chugging round (5)
38D Wide, more robust boat (6)
48D Waste a prize (7)
