Livigno (Iyaly) 15th November 2007 - Last weekend the big snowfall has allowed opening of the cross country skiing season in Livigno.
The 4 km course, starting from the Ski School in via Isola, is a real joy not only for normal skiers, but also for the professional: in few days a technical course will be open in addition – an ideal offer for the cross country skiing national teams training for La Sgambeda, and the most ambitious skiers. Sunday 16th December will take place the FIS Marathon Cup 2007/08 opening race, the World Cup of the cross country skiing long distance (for any additional information: www.lasgambeda.it).
The alpine and telemark skiers and the snowboarders will have to wait until 30th November: the official season opening day, and 115 km of slopes prepared on both mountain sides. For the season start, Livigno is launching a fantastic offer: Skipass Free. Its validity is from 30 November until 22nd December 07, and from 5th to 26th April 08. The skipass is included for all those, who will book min. 4 nights in hotels/garni, or 7 nights in any apartment joining the programme. (For any additional information: www.livigno.eu).
But Livigno is more than sport…all those, who like the old alpine traditions, will meet here, at Christmas: a magic season for all our guests, when the village will be decorated with lights and colours, covered by snow and filled with several special events, from the 29th of November until the 24th of December.
Snow, winter temperatures, cross country skiing opening and the Skipass Free, in a few days: it is already high season, in Livigno!
