Livigno ski holidays.
Livigno is a long, thin village that sits between the two main ski areas. Novices can begin to learn the basics at the village nursery slopes and in no time at all they can head up the mountain to enjoy the variety of easy blue runs back down to Livorno. Intermediates will be delighted by their choice of runs. Take the gondola to over three thousand metres to find wide open pistes. For more challenging terrain head for Mottolino area. Experienced skiers can also enjoy Mottolino's black runs and the black runs from Monte Della Neva back to the resort. The Trepalle below Monte Della Neve offers good off-piste skiing. Do take a mountain guide if you choose this option. Livigno is popular with snowboarders who can access seventy percent of the slopes. There are also two excellent snow parks, one of which is said to be the best in Italy.
Livigno hotels and apartments reach the high standards that you'd expect in an Italian resort. You are always given a warm and friendly welcome. There are plenty of restaurants both on and off the mountain offering a wide range of wholesome food.
