Skiing @Etna

Except some failed experiences in my childhood I never wanted practice skiing. But maybe I would like to try once, encouraged by what I saw in this video.
By the way, I never knew it is possible to sky on Etna, the most active volcano in Europe. The snow in March was the reason for creating 5 pistes, around the 2 main ski centers.
The images from the video are really tempting, including for photographers. Plus, if you have enough of snow, you can any time go to have some sea and sun treatment, in Taormina, Catania or Syracuse.
The prices are acceptable: the cost of a day permit is 15 Euro, plus around 25 Euro for renting the equipment.
Another advantage is that the pistes are not very crowded, regardless of the time of the year.
