Several hundred people have been trapped in the area ever since the landslides crashed down on Saturday night, although some people have chosen to stay put.
The hope was that the road could have been opened on Monday, but that wish was summarily dashed when a new water-logged landslide spewed debris all over the area.
"Most things are against us right now," Alf Waara, head of road maintenance in the municipality, told TT. "It is raining heavily and it is really warm, which causes the snow to melt intensively. All the rivers and streams are gushing rapidly at the moment."
