FONNA Glacier summer ski area in Norway announced over the weekend that they will be opening for the ski season on May 1st. Lifts will spin from 10-2.

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.

  • 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
