11 people in Vest-Agder County’s Sirdal needed medical attention, Sunday.



Five of the injuries occurred on the ski lifts. The other six people sustained injuries in the area’s mountainous terrain or in cabins (hytte).

They were sent to hospital or the emergency outpatient clinic after being treated.

Further people received medical attention for minor injuries.

Scouts, who had emergency bases at the ski slopes at Ådneram, also told regional publication Aftenbladet that the weather had been changeable.  

This was especially towards the end of the winter half term week.

Temperatures were variable, and wind speeds on early Sunday morning ranged from calm to 25 metres per second (Force 10 (storm/whole gale) on the Beaufort scale).  

Snow depth was 90 centimetres (some 3 feet), which is the deepest recorded this so far this winter.
