The ski areas of Bláfjöll and Skálafell are both only 25 minutes away from the city. Bláfjöll is south-west of the city and Skálafell east of the city. Both areas have great ski slopes for downhill skiing and snowboarding as well as tracks for cross-country skiing. There is no need to order ski equipment in advance. It is not known exactly when we can open the ski areas, it depends a lot on if there are enough snow  in the mountain. In recent years has it been able to open a few days in December but almost certainly from beginning of January.

It is also possible to order private lessons both on weekends and weekdays with notice. It costs per hour kr. 10.000 for 18 and older and 9.000 for 17 and younger.  Daypass included. for one, kr. 18.000 for two 18 and older and kr. 16.000 for two 17 and younger.  Daypass included.  And  kr. 24.000 for three 18 and older and kr. 21.000 for three 17 and younger.  Daypass included.
