Skiing on Rocks

No
snow? No problem for these hardcore skiers. They simply ski on rocks:

The warmest weather in half a century means that many European
ski resorts are without snow later in the year than any time in recent
memory. Some, dedicated skiers are turning to rocks to get their fix.

In Europe, there’s a shortage of snow this winter.

That’s meant people in Austria have had to come up with another
way to get in their skiing fix. They turned to rocks.

"At the moment we’re having problems because it’s too cold
to make artificial snow and real snow hasn’t started falling yet,"
said one Austrian skiier, who’d just come down a rock quarry.
