8 May 2019 – “35 centimeters (more than a foot) of snow here on the mountain” – artisans stuck in snow masses in Sälen
The snow over northern Dalarna posed problems in some places on Tuesday morning.
In Sälenfjällen there were several who did not go to work because of the snow masses.
– I thought it was summer time, says painter Kenny Helje-Haga who had to give up with summer tires on the car.
SMHI warned that the last 24 hours could reach up to 30 centimeters of fresh snow over the valley.
Large amounts of snow
– It is 35 centimeters of snow here on the mountain, says machine operator William Stålknapp who cleared snow on the roads next to Högfjällshotellet in Sälenfjällen.
Several craftsmen could not get to their workplaces this morning through the snow masses on the mountain. Most had problems with often newly fitted tires for another season.
