I wondered the same, as these ski lifts stopped a few weeks ago, but I presume the actual cable cars are somewhere else and will work in the summer.
Do the cars work in the summer? May on wards for tourist
Looks like Etna is taking a nap, for now. Hopefully, he'll wake up again. And, put on another show!
they've a canny bit of snow the day.gan canny an divvent cowp yo creels.
Breathe in that crisp, cold mountain air laced with volcanic ash containing fragments of jagged rocks and glass. Does a body good (unless you plan on needing healthy lungs your entire life).
Hmmm, looks like the volcano is bursting into life after a few weeks of sleeping!
GM, you think that's bad?In 1966 I was there CAMPING at the lip of the crater!!! Mind you, they had told us that it was extinct - we were later advised that they meant to tell us it was DORMANT. Thankfully, Etna didn't erupt for another 5 years, although it did rumble and hiss a lot whilst we were there :O
Skiing at the base (or exceptionally close to it) of a very active volcano. Perhaps it's just me, but this doesn't seem like a real smart idea.
Great! Looks like the camera was or adjusted or relocated, the view is much better. Also the location map is right now. Thank you folks for taking care!
Would love to ski down enta, looks amazing
1/10/19: California PST 10:13PM: Nice eruption of black/gray steam. Moving to the left of the screen. Nice, to see some more action!
Finally a good snowfall. Maybe the lift will be opening soon. Last season was pretty thin for snow.
Looks like the camera has been attacked by recent snowfall!
I spoke with a friend today who lives in Aci Castello and apperntly there wasn't much quake damage on the coast. Was planning to go there for new year, wishing I had now.
Very interesting with the snow giving visual definition against the black lava. Will need a lot more snow before the skiers show up, I presume.
