Ski in the backcountry that surrounds the alpine town of Livigno. Resting high in the valley, the region receives plenty of snowfall each year that lasts longer than the average ski resort. Thus backcountry skiing here provides vast swathes of white powder in serene surroundings. Visit during the winter months between January and April for ideal backcountry skiing conditions.
The alpine town of Livigno sits in the province of Sondrio in the region of Lombardy in the extreme north of Italy, close to the border with Switzerland. The traditional town rests at 1,816 meters above sea level. Its quality reputation has earned it the right to host some of the events (snowboarding and freestyle skiing) at the 2026 Winter Olympics.
The climate of Livigno is characterized as cold and wet, with the majority of winter receiving temperatures below freezing.
