Ski resorts in Italy
This small Italian town near the Swiss border has a name that originates from an old German word for avalanche. It might sound sinister, but remember that avalanches tend to stick to the slopes that skiers find most enjoyable. In stable conditions Livigno can offer world-class skiing!

The origin of the name may also provide a clue as to why skiing outside the slopes was banned until the 2012/2013 season. However, nowadays nothing stops you from moving outside the prepared slopes and they even offer heliskiing. For those who do not like to go off track, the often talked about wide, long and empty Italian slopes are also there to provide the best opportunities for achieving the perfect carved turn. The slopes are, however, mainly aimed at those who prefer slopes that aren't too steep, even though some of them are.

Freeride Livigno is the best. Why? Apart from the amazing Heliski & snowboard on offer the staff are what make the difference. Fabiano, Arianna and Jacopo are all legends and made our freeride experience the best. BOYO!

Hey guys, so i stayed in Livigno with 3 more people for 6 days, it was at the beginnig of march 2010.
The weather is always nice at this time of year so we had a decent week. Slopes are awesome, they propably are not the widest i have ever seen but because of the open terrain they simply seem like the widest highways in whole Alps.
When you hear anyone talkin about Livigno, they always talk about tax-free zone, nice terrain and slopes, awesome freestyle park and slopes on mottolino and carosello side and should be it, but its not cause you have got some really nice people there and simply awesome and endless posibilities of freeride but since last year its illegal to be off piste without guide so if you want to give it a shot you have to pay for a guide of simply try your luck and not be caught.
So at the end i would say that Livigno is totally worth for getting your asses there but i would also recommed you to do it as soon as you can because every single year Livigno seems like more and more crowded and expensive (but still much better that most ski area in Alps)

So classic review:
Pros - basically the widest slopes i have ever seen, good snow conditions, great nightlife, tax-free zone, its just one village with limited beds options so slopes are not crowdy

Cons - getting there is harsh, especially during weekends so if you can avoid weekends do it!, its tax-free but i have been there several times and prices are getting up every year, freeride has been put under control - its illegal now - since dec 2010, the only was you can go off-piste its with a guide

grade 8,5/10

what 'bout livigno?livigno is a great for really every kind of holiday! we stayed in a flat, 7 people, and we had a great time. life is really cheap there, since livigno is a tax-free area, so you can shop anything you need.. and watch for good deals - blades, ski, snwoboard, but also cigarettes, food and SPIRITS!!!! by the way..check-out "homelywood", the most incredible place ever..and the highest barmen ever!!!!!!!
skiing? just a bad year for all italian ski-resort, with very few snow...and, of course, it was snowing the day we left. but they have good planned-snow programs-SURVIVAL SKIING. but I think livigno can be a real cool site for freeriding served with ski lifts, with some natural snow.
I would like to thank worldwide governments, politicians, managers, and everyone on this planet whom, for his own profit, has contributed to devastate this planet and, via climate-changes,over all the damages in several ecosystems, has also reduced snowing on italian alps! thank you fuckin' much

Was in Livigno New Year 2017/2018 and had a fantastic week. It snowed a lot so both downhill and off-piste was great. Both for snowboarding and slalom.
Good food in the restaurants and wonderful ingredients. Nice après ski.

A wonderful place with a lovely atmosphere.
Perfect place for the elderly, family or love couple.
Not the hottest ride in the Alps but beautiful wide pistes and not much queues in the lifts.

Very nice alpby! Been here twice now the last few years and what I have to compare with is Canazei, Val Thorens and asked Gastein. In short, Val Thorens is a place I like to go with with friends, but Livingo is great to go with with the family. It is a very old and cozy alpine where the food is great at a cheap price. Skiing is good but not as challenging as skiing in France or Austria. Afterskiin is okay, you can sit in the sun with good drinks but you do not stand and jump on the tables. But summer sumarum, a nice destination!
