Holy pow-a-bunga! Folgefonna, a Norwegian glacial resort, just received one heck of a spring snowstorm. Over 13 feet of snow pounded the resort during the first week of June. The massive, quick accumulation buried many parts of the resort and caused 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,” Fonna SnowPark commented on their Instagram.

As of Friday, the storm subsided, but the crew still had a lot of work to do.  Summer shredding is going to be all-time on this glacier; maybe it's time to pack our bags and head to Folgefonna.
