Volcano Erupts at Chilean Ski Resort

You know you're in Chile when you're on the chairlift, watching a volcanic eruption happen before your eyes. And skiers just keep skiing.

Chile's beloved ski resort, Nevados de Chillán, is nestled up close to the Chillán Volcano, one of the country's most active volcanos. Beginning in July, there have been earthquakes and other seismic activity associated with explosions from the volcano. 

The Service Nacional de Geología and Minería has been tracking the volcano, and have found the current activity is associated with the growth of the Gil-Cruz lava dome. 

While most would be shocked by the volcanic activity, you can see skiers just going on with their day as if there isn't a massive plume of smoke and volcanic ash blowing up behind them.

Would you still send it?
