The region has received a lot of snowfall this past winter, so much snow that the ski resort in Oddsskarð is expected to be open on weekends through June, possibly longer. 

Dagfinnur Ómarsson, warden at Oddsskarð told Morgunblaðið that he doesn’t recall the ski resort having been open so long before.
