If it continues to snow, the Bláfjöll skiing area just outside of Reykjavik could open soon for the winter skiing season. 

On the Bláfjöll website it states, "It's begun to snow and the mountains are white and beautiful. We still need quite a bit though to open."

Managing director of Bláfjöll, Magnús Árnason says in today's edition of Morgunblaðið that he predicts the skiing area to open in December. 

It takes just 15 minutes to drive to the Bláfjöll mountains from Reykjavik.
