A New On-Snow Training Site: Glacier Skiing On Iceland

FasterSkierOctober 6, 2004

Iceland’s glaciers can become an alternative training site for those who want early summer and fall skiing reports Swedish Skidsport.com.

Ramsau and Val Senales high altitude glaciers have for years been where European skiers have traveled to get on-snow training in the summer and fall. Two glaciers on Iceland might become an alternative to that next season. A lot lower altitude might be very attractive to some teams.

Austria’s Nordic combined team had 15 skiers training on the Myrdalsglacier in southern Iceland in September at only 1000-meters altitude and reported great skiing and perfect conditions. Two glaciers will be open next season, Snaerfjellsjokull until July and Myrdalsjokull from July.
