Livigno might not have the huge size of some of the other European ski resorts but what it lacks in km’s it certainly makes up for in freestyle areas and style. The atmosphere and vibe all complement the ski area and it has to be one of the coolest resorts in the Alps that we know. So what does it have to offer in the way of freestyle areas?
One of the top snowparks in the Alps and home to the training area of the GB park and pipe team. If it’s good enough for them and many other national training teams then you have to take a visit and see what all the fuss is about. It features 4 lines – SM, L and XL and its 800m long. The Trepalle chairlift takes you right over the park so you get a birds eye view of all the pro’s hitting the big jumps and doing their tricks. The XL line is dedicated to the professional’s in the park but as well as the jumps there are over 50 rails, boxes and obstacles that you can try to hit. Some of the big European competitions take place in this snowpark such as the Europa cup and it has been host to some big events in the past too.
As well as the large snowpark the Mottolino Fun Mountain also features the Yepi area which is great for families or beginners and has a small line of jumps and obstacles to try too. Its great for practising before you hit the big park.
Every year this park area just gets better and better and is a very popular area to head for if you are a freestyle lover. Situated right at the top of the Carosello 3000 gondola it’s easy to get to and there’s a small chairlift to get you back up to the top with some awesome views.
It’s got some great jumps for perfecting your style and a cool chill out area where you can watch everyone else with deckchairs and beanbags – on a sunny day it’s the perfect spot on the mountain
Also new in 2018/19 season The Beach Funslope opened and was the longest funslope in Europe with some crazy bends and tunnels and is 1700 metres long.
The Beach hosts one of the best snowboard and ski competitions of the season – The Guardian – where pro’s and locals are together try to win the slalom race.
