Skiing on Mount Etna
That’s right – you can actually ski down the slopes of Mount Etna, with two resorts (Piano Provenzana and Nicolosi) offering a variety of smooth, downhill pistes. They aren’t anywhere near as extensive as the ski resorts in the Italian Alps, but conditions tend to be consistently excellent from December through to February – without the dense crowds found at more renowned winter sports destinations. It’s not often you get the chance to ski down an active volcano with spectacular views of the sea in the distance. Try it out to see Sicily from a totally different vantage point.
