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.
