Livigno ski resort

Nestled between two mountain ranges and spread across the 12 km beautiful Valtellina alpine valley, Livigno ski resort is a must-go holiday location for families and ski enthusiasts.

Locally known as Piccolo Tibet (little Tibet), Livigno ski resort is famous for its all-season ski weather, sports-packed winter season, affordable and duty-free shopping experience, extreme snowparks and excellent après ski.

Livigno's low-slung prices and festive atmosphere naturally entice the skiing crowd. Going on a ski holiday to Livigno is also means going on a ski holiday with convenience on the slopes.

Chairlifts cover nearly all of the higher terrains as the Italians hate standing up in T-bars or the like.

Livigno ski resort has an extensive and well-functioning snow cannon grid, ensuring that the slopes are regularly topped up with snow.

Ski Information for Livigno

Situated in a dense valley in the heart of Italy´s northern ski centre, is Livigno ski resort. The ski resort is surrounded by three main skiing areas - the bigger Carosello and Costaccia areas to the east and the recently extended and challenging Mottolino ski terrain to the west.   The combined area consists of 115 km of slopes, with altitudes ranging from 1,700 to 2,900 meters. In total 78 pistes awaits – distributed across 12 blacks, 37 red, and 29 blue pistes.   The skiing range has various access points and is serviced by a modern lift mechanism comprising of 6 cableways, 14 chair lifts, and 12 ski lifts. Bus service is also free for all ski pass holders.   Livigno ski resort’s specialty is winter sports. Besides alpine skiing, there are locations in the resort ideal for telemark skiing and a 30 km well-developed network of cross-country skiing trails.   There are plenty of options for hard-core, thrill-seekers too. Considered as Europe’s biggest fun park for skiers, Mottolino snowpark will surely keep snowboarders and freestylers entertained.   More advanced skiers can try heli-skiing too, a skiing experience wherein the skiers are carried by helicopters instead of traditional ski lifts and are taken to the steepest and unexplored summits of the resort.   The resort boasts over 200 ski experts, all trained at the Italian Ski School. The cutting-edge ski schools offer training for first-timers, children and for those with disabilities too.

Livigno Skiable Terrain for Beginners

Livigno ski resort is an ideal training ground for first timers and beginner skiers. There is 30 km of trails to practice on with some gentle, open, uncongested nursery slopes at the village level that helps first timers advance to higher runs.   Novices can take the scenic continuous downhill run (Pista degli Amanti) on Monte della Neve (highest point on Mottolino) to the base area at Teola. Next to this slope is the Yepi Trail, a fun park dedicated to children lessons.   Pian della Volpe has several blue pistes too and is isolated from the rest of the Mottolino range making it completely free of speed racers.   There are some full blue runs from the top of the Costaccia too. At the base area, on the Carosello 3000 side is another snowpark for children featuring fun race courses.   The Bella Vista’s gentle blue slopes near the base of Carosello attract a lot of beginners due to the beautiful panoramic views over Spöl Valley.

Livigno Skiable Terrain for Intermediates

A total of 65 km of red runs will surely keep intermediate skiers occupied in the resort. Both of the two main skiing areas in Livigno are abundant of short, long and above the tree line red pistes.   Intermediates can start their week on the eastern side of the resort on Costaccia. For more challenging red runs they can head next to Carosello by riding the Carosello 300 gondola lift.   Numerous short red runs at Carosello converge into several longer runs which give skiers a great sweeping view of the mountains and the valley below.   The technical and challenging terrain of the Sponda Fis at Mottolina is an athlete’s favorite and suitable to intermediate skiers too. There are clusters of red pistes next to it that take skiers back down to the village. Some of these trails lead to Trepalle, another great location for intermediates.

Livigno Skiable Terrain for Experts

There are limited black pistes for experts in Livigno, but most of the difficult trails in the resort are incredibly steep and well-groomed.   One of these is the 20 km slopes of the stunning Giorgio Rocca piste, named after the former World Champion in Slalom. Several of the toughest runs can also be found on Monte Della Neve.
