Skálafell is thought to be approximately 1.8 million years old, a remnant of the now dormant Stardalur volcano. The mountain joins to the eastern side of Mount. Esja, the tabletop mountain that overlooks Reykjavik. 

Skálafell is one of two ski slopes in the Reykjavik area, the other found in the mountain ranges of Bláfjöll. Skálafell boasts numerous slopes (some extending to 7 km (4.3 mi)), accessible to beginners and pros alike, as well a ski lodge, 4 chairlifts, off-piste trails and snow conditioning. The ski slope is only open during the winter months when there is enough snow cover on the mountain, usually from the beginning of February to mid-April. Skálafell Skiing Area is open on the weekends during this period.
