Ever thought about taking up skiing? How about carving the black sand slopes on an active volcano? Yeah. It’s a thing. When he feels “nostalgic” for the mountain, Claudio Lanzafame shreds volcanic gnar on Europe’s highest volcano, Mount Etna.

Using a camera strapped to his head, Claudio Lanzafame is shown slaloming his way through the dark ash, which appears to look like powdered snow.

Did you know that with an experienced guide you can ski or snowshoe to the summit of Europe’s largest active volcano in winter? Once at the top of Mount Etna, if the weather is good, you can stand at a crater’s edge, smell the sulphur and enjoy sparkling views of the Ionian, Adriatic and Mediterranean seas.
