Skálafell Ski Slope Reopened at Last

Global warming what? The Skálafell ski area has been closed for the last three winters due to lack of snow.

This weekend the area will be reopened with plenty of snow. Many local ski enthusiasts prefer Skálafell and it is also close to the capital area.

Skálafell lies at a distance of 40 kilometers/25 miles from downtown Reykjavík.
