Piano Provenzana is a ski area located in the town of Linguaglossa (CT), on the northern slope of Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. It is located at an altitude of 1,810 meters above sea level and is surrounded by large pine wood.
A place that combines the charm of the alpine landscape to the marine environment: despite the high altitude, from skiing facilities, you can look at the legendary Ionian Sea, which was the scene of legends and myths of classical origin.
With four ski-slopes, the station was re-built in part after a violent eruption, that damaged many structures, in 2002. It is a very interesting destination for all winter sports lovers: offering cross-country skiing, ski touring and even snowboarding. An international destination: so much that, in 2001, one of the tracks – approved for the slalom and giant slalom – was used to compete in the Italian Cup F.I.S.
Served by four of the modern generation ski lifts, Piano Provenzana is easily reachable by car: after arriving in the town of Linguaglossa, simply go to the pine forest following the instructions provided along the paved road.
