Holy pow-a-bunga! Folgefonna, a Norwegian glacial resort, just got dumped on. Over 13 feet of snow pounded the resort in during the first week of June. That’s one heck of a summer snowstorm! The massive and quick accumulation buried many parts of the resort causing it to close. The crew has been digging out lifts and other structures, and hopes to resume operations soon.
 
“We are doing our best to get the lift running again. The park is still under a lot of snow, but hopefully we can start building it up again tomorrow,”  commented Fonna SnowPark on their Instagram.
As of Friday, the storm seemed to have subsided, and the sun was back out, but crew still has a lot of work to do.  Summer shredding is going to be all time on this glacier, maybe it’s time to pack out bags and head to Folgefonna.
