Please join me for a guided 4 to 6-day ski touring traverse in Sicily, on Mount Etna, the tallest (3343m) active volcano in Europe.

I particularly enjoy guiding my friends and clients there because…

  • it offers breathtaking views on the sea;
  • the Province of Catania (Nicolosi and Linguaglossa) is a region where people are very welcoming and friendly, and the local Sicilian food awesome;
  • it suitable for different levels of skiers, more or less beginners to more experienced;
  • reaching craters with your skis is a very unique experience.

The exact itinerary will be decided a little bit before arriving in order to go to the spots where weather and snow conditions are the best.  I will be there with my van so we will maximize our flexibilty and make sure we have the best ski of the area.

It is not a very technical ski touring traverse and the daily positive altitude change varies from 700 to 1100 meters.

We will be staying in a bed and breakfast. I can guide you there between 4 to 6 days. The number of participants should not exceed 7 persons for one guide. If you are a larger group, I will ask one of my friends, IFMGA mountain guide as well to join us.

If you plan to come to Sicily and he if you wish to ski on Mount Etna, please get in touch with me and let’s discuss about a program that would match your desires. I will be very happy to guide you there and let your discover this awesome part of Italy.

If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
