Ski touring on Etna
A trip for off-piste skiing enthusiasts in the Sicily of the highest volcano in Europe. Three days to enjoy the thrill of ski-mountaineering climbs with limited technical difficulties, with average daily gradients. Never higher than 1,000 meters.
A bit more challenging, but definitely appreciable, the variant that provides for the south-north crossing of the volcano. A fascinating panoramic route. Through the North East Crater, the Pizzi de' Neri and the Grotta del Gelo, offers unique emotions.
A complete experience to experience the environment of the volcano in all its facets. An excursion to be carried out in conditions of optimal snowfall and of great satisfaction even for the most demanding ski mountaineers.
Snow and ski mountaineering conditions
Already at the end of November, over 2000 meters, the snowpack on Etna is sufficiently continuous and compact. The first snowfalls, due to their constitution of very "wet" crystals, therefore in great cohesion among them, are the most important for the accumulation of winter snow.
The damp and compact layer, by freezing, helps the lightest and driest snow of December to join better to the volcanic soil. Protect it at the same time from strong winter winds. For this reason, the first ascents at the end of December-beginning of January are often very funny. It seems in fact to ski on perfectly beaten snow and compact, even if you have to pay attention to the ice. For this reason, we therefore recommend the use of knives or rampant.
With the snowfalls of December and January, the ski mountaineering season on Etna comes into full swing. On Etna, unlike many other ski resorts, ski mountaineering can be practiced safely throughout the season.
With its 3,350 meters of height and its perfect conical shape, Etna is a volcano of great charm. Its profile distinguishes the landscape of all eastern Sicily, because visible at a distance up to 250 kilometers. Every 3 years the eruptions of the most active cones allow you to witness fascinating eruptions while admiring lava flows on the slopes.
The Mediterranean atmosphere, the mild climate, the aromas, the warm and cheerful Sicilian hospitality, as well as the flavors of a traditional and authentic cuisine, will make our Etna adventure unique!
