SKI MOUNTAINEERING IS BACK ON MOUNT ETNA
While Skimo has just been added to the PyeongChang Olympic Games, Mount Etna will host the prestigious European Championship, 6 years after the unforgettable experience of the World Championship in 2012. The magic atmosphere of our mountain Etna and the warm spirit of Sicilian hospitality have surely influenced the choice of ISMF (International Ski Mountaineering Federation) and Fisi Organisation.
It will be 3 days of hard races, 22, 23 and 24.02.2018, men and women of all categories, Senior, Espoir, Junior and Cadet featuring all the disciplines, Sprint, Vertical and Individual. For the category cadet it will be also the first qualification race for the Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne 2020. This European Championship will be a great show, a very attractive sport event especially for young people who wants to be one to one to nature, in a manner that only skimo is capable of doing.
It will be a unique opportunity for athletes and followers to race or cheer in that unique landscape where snow, sea and fire get together and form an indissoluble union.
