Both in the several ski centers found in the area as well as off pist in the high mountains surrounding the fjord. The Akureyri's ski-slopes, which are on Mt. Hlídarfjall, 5 km above the town, invite skiiers to the area from the beginning of December till end of April. The elevation in the skislopes ranges from 500 m to 1000 m above sea level, and there is therefore plenty of snow during the winter.”
