Norway is drowning in snow


By meteomorris on 4 June 2015 · 0

May was pretty extraordinary with lots of snowfall in the Alps and Scandinavia. We saw pictures with snow deep into the valleys on a regular basis. The images shot in Norway this week however... Wow... They make me forget about summer. Winter is back!

The glaciers had to be open for summer skiing already, but with that much snow they even have to locate their t-bars. In Fonna they started with digging and searching for the lifts that are covered in three to four meters of snow. The ski area of Stryn is closed today as well, because of snowfall, bad visibility and blocked roads.
