Skiing & Snowboarding, Lifts & Terrain

The Livigno skiing & snowboarding terrain is split in half by a broad valley & the town stretched along it. Both sides (Carosello & Mottolino) are connected by ski-bus & share a common lift pass. The 115km of trails are dwarfed by the breadth of the off-piste & backcountry terrain. The majority of the resort's slopes are well above 2,000m elevation & north-east to north-west aspected, ensuring premium snow conditions. The ski terrain (on & off-piste) is however on the mellow side of the spectrum with very little for experts.

See the Livigno ski trail map.

To the west & with lifts extending directly from the edge of town, the Carosello 3000 area is the larger of the two sides. 3 gondolas & 6 chairs do the heavy lifting on the ample 980m vertical. Numerous other novice tows & chairs line the lower base areas, providing world-class sheltered locations to learn to ski. The backside of Carosello is a freeriders backcountry haven, plus the tree skiing & routes around the avalanche fencing from Costaccia can be epic on a powder day.

On the eastern side of the valley, Mottolino has 1 gondola & 5 chairlifts serving a similar skiable vertical of around 970m. The access gondola & chairlift requires a walk or local transport to reach from town & novice ski terrain is comparatively limited. Alternative access to Mottolino for day-trippers from Bormio is via chairlifts at the village of Trepalle or Passo d’Eira. Freeride options off the 2,785m Monte della Neve are massive, particularly into the Vallaccia. The Vallaccia terrain is mainly mellow to moderate pitch – nothing too extreme here. The snow-park on Mottolino above Trepalle is a sight to behold, & a worthy competitor with the world's best at Laax in Switzerland. Heliskiing is available in Livigno, but we have had mixed reports about the terrain offerings!

Lift Pass

In addition to local lift passes that include both the Mottolino & Carosello sectors, the Alta Valtellina Ski Pass is another ticketing option. It is valid for 3 or more days in Livigno, Bormio, Santa Caterina & Cima Piazzi - San Colombano. The Alta Valtellina Ski Pass may be of value if intending to ski a few days at the other resorts if based mainly in Livigno. Worth doing your sums before purchase!
