Overview 

A snow-sure, cheap but surprisingly awesome resort in northern Italy. Livigno is a tax-free resort because it was historically difficult for any tax collectors to get there. Things haven't changed and it's still a long way from everywhere but the long transit times are tempered by the great terrain, cheap booze and huge terrain parks. The resort is across two sides of a valley, one side being Mottolino, the other Carosello. A joint electronic lift ticket is available.

EDIT ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION


Freeheel festival

Each spring Livigno hosts a freeheel festival.

Dining

An interesting mix of Italian with Swiss influences and well priced. The local bresaola (air-dried beef) is awesome.

Bars & Entertainment

Night life is a bit different to the chilled out Swiss apres. Most bars have amazingly loud dance music on from 3pm with the occasional shouty Italian DJ interjecting. Pints are cheap by resort standards (~3 Euros). Spirits don't seem that cheap but the bar staff tend to be very liberal with the shots.

Shopping

Lot's of duty free shopping options in town.
