“Welcome to Sicily!” Here’s some eye-popping video of skiing on Mount Etna in Sicily (and some other local activities). Technically, yes, a ski company ad–but it will give the daredevil skiers among you an idea of winter sport opportunities in the far south. What would you think about skiing on a volcano while it is actively erupting?
WOW!! First, I had no idea that there was snow on Etna and people ski on it.
If I was in Sicily when Etna erupted, I would be looking for immediate evacuation … let alone being ON the volcano while it’s erupting!!! Call me a wimp.
I think it would be amazing to see an eruption–from a safe distance, like maybe Reggio? I’m sure the quality of snow for skiing is hard to maintain, and quite variable, on Etna.
Thanks for sharing this lovely video. My ski trips only went as far as the ski lodges due to my having asthma. That was when I was young. Now I don’t htink I’d even bother going that far.
