Skiing On 35,000,000 Tons of Mining Waste

Check out this fascinating episode from English YouTuber Tom Scott as he explores a one of kind ski experience in Bavaria, Germany. The ski hill at Monte Kaolino is the product of decades of mining waste in the form of quartz sand from a nearby open-pit kaolin mine. In the 1960s one dude saw opportunity where others saw waste and now a half a century later the 393-foot sand hill is the centerpiece of a full fledge amusement-park where sandboarders and skiers enjoy lift access to the summit.
