Good snow conditions

This is the Stone. From 1935, it was the starting point of Fossavatnsgangan. Since the main race was lengthened to 50 km, the race starts and ends in Seljalandsdalur but the Stone marks the halfway point. The track director, Þröstur Jó (a competitor in the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid), went recently to the Stone to check snow conditions. Just like race participants have shown the Stone respect through the decades, the wind makes sure no snow sit in its immediate vicinity.

Snow layers are good and everything looks set for a good Fossavatn walk.
