Piano Provenzana is a ski resort situated in the northern slope of Etna. Located at an altitude of 1,810 m s.l.m. and is located in the town of Linguaglossa.
In contrast to the ski resort located on the southern slope of Mount Etna, centred around the Rifugio Sapienza and dominated by a landscape largely free from vegetation dominated by lava, the station Piano Provenzana of Linguaglossa is surrounded by a large pine wood and has the appearance of an Alpine landscape with the addition of the vision of the Ionian Sea.
Even this ski resort, with four tracks, was hit by the eruption of 2002 and, as was the case for the Etna sud, it had to provide for reconstruction of damaged structures.
The station has slopes for skiing, cross country skiing, Alpine skiing and snowboarding. There are two slalom runs serviced by two lifts, pistes for cross-country skiing and other winter sports. One of the tracks, before it was damaged by the eruption, was approved for F.I.S slalom and giant slalom and there was held the F.I.S Italy Cup of 2001.
