Following discussions with its local municipality to agree on certain conditions to promote social distancing, the ski area is preparing the slopes and digging out surrounding access roads.
One of three Norwegian glacier summer ski areas, the area has been sharing pictures of their 40-foot base. There has been no word from the other two glacial ski areas about their potential opening.
Norway slightly relaxed its lockdown rules last week to allow small gatherings. This gave some of the smaller ski areas the opportunity to re-open to locals, albeit while still abiding with social distancing measures.
According to the resort’s announcement, the following rules were agreed with the local authorities:
- a maximum of 300 tickets sold every day
- children under the age of 10 must have an adult
- 1 person per T-bar, unless from the same family
- passes can only be bought online at least 48-hours in advance
- café, kitchen, and toilets are closed
- the terrain park will not be opened to reduce the risk of unnecessary injuries
