Icelanders hit the slopes over Easter

By Iceland Review

Thousands of Icelanders took out their downhill skis during the Easter holidays. Yesterday, over one thousand people were skiing in Bláfjöll, one of the two main ski area in the southwest of Iceland. Seven ski lifts were open and the skiing conditions were reported to have been good. Due to lack of snow, this was the first time in four years that Bláfjöll have been open during the Easter holidays. For the last few years, ski areas in the Reykjavík vicinity have been virtually void of snow, including the two main areas Bláfjöll and Skálafell.

All in all, Bláfjöll have been open for 30 days this winter.
