    Skálafell Ski Area is CLOSED while we wait for more snow.


    Ho ho ho
    A little snow has arrived in Skálafell yet.

    But we are ready to capture the snow.


    You can now buy tickets online and also at N1 gas station Ártúnshöfða, N1 Lækjargötu Hafnarfirði, N1 Háholti Mosfellsbæ and N1 Stórahjalli Kópavogi.

    You can only buy the plastic card at Olís Norðlingaholti and N1 Hveragerði


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.

Bláfjöll has 14 lifts. Skálafell has 4 lifts.

Skálafell is only open during weekends from beginning of February to middle of April.
