Ski and Sport are pleasure to introduce the famous Italian resort of Livigno into its programme for 2015/16. This superb high level resort is very popular with the UK adult market and we are very fortunate to have secured a programme to there for groups.
The resort enjoys a very long ski season running from late November to May 10th 2015. Due to its sheltered position and an altitude of nearly 2900m at the top, skiers can be confident of having excellent snow conditions at any time of the season including a late Easter.
The skiing in Livigno is split into 2 areas one either side of the valley. There is an excellent choice od runs for all abilities and skiers taking lessons from the award winning ski school will soon progress onto a variety of runs. The resort also boasts Italy’s best snowpark “Little Tibet” where skiers will enjoy hours of fun. The resort also organises and hosts a wide and varied range of internationally renowned events of every winter discipline including cross country skiing in December to spectacular freeski jumps in the snow castle. The resort is also pioneering a series of “snow survival” courses throughout the year. Over 115km of well groomed pistes, served by 31 lifts, are covered on the ski pass and the nearest lift being only 50m from our hotel.
All meals are taken in the hotel including a hot midday meal each day. The spacious dining room looks out on the village below and across to the mountains beyond. Food is again of a high standard as would be expected of a 3 star hotel and consists of many local Livigno dishes as well as buffet breakfast and buffet choice of salad and starter in the evening plus continental choices.
Again we are fortunate that the hotel has its own rental shop in the complex itself so there is very little carrying involved. The hotel has a large heated boot room for use y our groups.
The Livigno ski school has a very high reputation both for ski and snowboard instruction. Having worked with English clients for a long time we are able to ensure English speaking instructors are provided for all our clients.
During the evening the resort of Livigno really comes alive. There are numerous bars, café’s and other forms of evening entertainment. The multitude of shops
Offer an excellent choice of goods to purchase and because of its DUTY FREE status prices are unbeatable.
The Hotel itself has a “good size” swimming pool which is fully attended and available for our groups. There is also a games area and fitness room in the hotel.
The village also has a bowling alley and ice rink.
