Skiing in Livigno

Livigno, the second highest municipality in Italy, is the most northerly of Lombardy and the most populated among the 26 Italian municipalities situated at more than 1,500 meters of altitude.
Livigno is one of the most complete ski resorts, both for the ski area and for its hospitality and services.
Due to the harsh climate, the snow remains until late in the season and it is always soft and powdery; if the natural one is missing, the number of cannons for artificial snow are ready to prepare a great ground on the slopes.

Livigno, known as "The Little Tibet" for particularly cold weather during winter, is a free port, for this reason is a popular shopping destination.

Technical description:
The variety of slopes is one of the great qualities of Livigno: fun for everyone, for every ability, with 12 'black' slopes, 37 'red' and 29 'blue'.
Expert skiers can satisfy their need of speed on rough and long slopes, including the exciting Giorgio Rocca slope.
Families and beginners have at their disposal suitable slopes and many fun areas equipped for learning the basic technique and to learn by playing.

The town lies in a small valley, while the ski area is placed along the mountains slopes that surround it. Unfortunately, there are two separate ski districts that, even with the same skipass and very close by each other, are not linked by skis yet.

The natural location and the climate make Livigno one of the locations where the ski season lasts longer and where the fun is assured thanks to the wide range of available routes. From November to May you will find 115 km of snow-covered slopes, perfectly connected by modern ski lifts.

Points of interest


This picturesque artificial lake (more commonly called Livigno Lake) marks the border between Italy and Switzerland, and it characterizes the area, changing its contours depending on the season. During summer you can breathe the cool air coming from the water, colors are warm and intense; on the contrary in winter it becomes a mirror, the movements seem slower, and everything appears completely white.


Livigno’s pedestrian area attracts many visitors, thanks to the presence of trendy shops, restaurants and clubs. Technological and gastronomic shopping (especially the famous Valtellina’s Bresaola) are a daily occurrence.


It is home to one of the busiest Snowpark, repeatedly awarded as the best in Italy and among the top 5 in Europe. In winter the district, in addition to the Snowpark, has also 6 fun areas and two refuges and in summer everything changes in the only Specialized Bike Park in Italy, with nine trails of varying difficulty, a jump area and a north shore area.
