Learn to ski in Livigno


Located high up in a remote valley, near the Swiss border and within the province of Lombardia, Livigno is around 3hrs drive from Innsbruck and around 3,5hrs drive from Milan Linate. Known as “The little Tibet of Europe”, Livigno has very heavy snowfalls, which ensure a very long skiing season, from the end of November until the beginning of May. Additionally, the resort has very modern snow-making facilities that can provide up to 80% snow coverage.

The ski area in Livigno is divided into two areas, Carosello 3000 and Mottolino, one on each side of the valley. The resort offers 115 km of slopes at heights up to 2.900m, with 29 blue, 37 red and 12 black runs. Additionally, a total of 4 excellent terrain parks makes the resort a magnet for snowboarding fans.

Carosello 3000 has something for every skier, with plenty of wide and gentle beginner slopes, but also lots of intermediate slopes. Mottolino is famous for its world-famous snowpark, which regularly hosts several major international freestyle events including the Burton European Open, the Nine Knights, the Burn River Jump and the World Rookie Fest.

Ski lessons for beginners in Livigno


In Livigno, ski lessons are available for skiers aged 3yrs. Lessons for kids are either 2hrs or 4hrs daily, adult lessons last for 2hrs. Some lesson packages have ski hire included. Groups have a maximum of 10 participants and are divided according to age and ability.

Ski schools in Livigno mostly hold their ski lessons within the Carosello 3000 area, due to the area having plenty of wide and sunny beginner slopes. Lessons start on Sundays and the ski school meeting point is either at the no.25 Tagliede ski lift or directly at the ski school office.

The first lessons focus on learning the basic moves of the snowplough and glide. These are learned at the flattest slopes within the resort and there are plenty within direct and close access from the town.

Once the first two moves have been well established, the ski schools in Livigno take their ski novices to try pistes with a slight incline. Here, lessons continue to work on the snowplough and glide, however, now the snowplough turn is also introduced.

Beginners with some previous experience are taken directly to blue slopes within the resort. The basic moves are quickly revised before more advanced techniques, such as parallel skiing, are introduced.

Kids’ ski lessons in Livigno


Ski schools in Livigno offer ski lessons to young skiers aged 3yrs and above. Lessons for kids aged 3-4yrs are held in small groups with a maximum of 5 participants and lessons last either 2hrs or for a full day (4hrs), with a lunch option. Some ski schools in Livigno offer lessons packages with ski hire included. The ski school meeting point is either directly at the ski school office or at the no.25 Tagliede ski lift.

The first lessons are very relaxed, so that the little skiers can familiarise themselves with wearing and using skis whilst beginning to learn how to glide and do the snowplough. Young skiers with previous experience are taken directly to slopes that suit their ability: Those who have skied for one week previously firstly refresh the basic techniques before focusing on snowplough turns and eventually parallel skiing.

The ski schools in Livigno take their advanced young skiers to red slopes to further improve their parallel skiing and carving techniques. There are plenty of red runs accessible from the top of the no.12 cablecar at just under 2800m.

How do we find offers for our desired date?

How do we find group lessons or private instructors?

Group courses are marked with "Group". You can search specifically for group courses by selecting the "Group" filter under the "Category" menu item. Private teachers are marked with the inscription "Private". You can search for private teachers by selecting the "Private" filter under the "Category" menu item.

How do we find offers in our language?

Under the menu item "Language" you can select a desired language. Afterwards only offers will be shown where this language is available.

When should we book?

During the holiday weeks, ski and snowboard courses are usually fully booked. In order to make sure that there is still a place available in the desired ski or snowboard course, the motto is: the sooner the better.

How do we find our appropriate experience level?

Next to the menu item "Experience level" you will find a description of the individual experience levels. If you're still not sure, you don't need to worry. Simply choose the experience level that best suits your abilities. Before the first lesson of a group course, ski schools will assess your abilities so that you can be placed in the right group. In any case, private instructors will take your abilities into account on an individual basis.

How do we find offers including equipment?

All offers including equipment are marked with the inscription "Ski rental included". If you find the inscription "Ski rental optional" you can book the equipment for this offer. You will find offers including equipment faster if you select the filter "Ski rental including" under the menu item "Popular options". Depending on the provider, an offer including equipment contains: skis, ski poles, ski boots and helmet. You will find a detailed list of the included rental items in the respective offer description.

There is no offer including equipment, where can we alternatively rent equipment?

In a ski resort there is almost without exception the possibility to rent winter sports equipment. If you book via CheckYeti, you will receive discounts from our partner Skiset, where you can conveniently reserve your equipment online.

How many participants are usually in a group?

This depends on the ski school. Some ski schools have a maximum number of participants per group. You can find this information in the descriptions of the offers.

At what age can children ski or snowboard?

There is no fixed age limit here. Supported by specially trained children's ski instructors, children can already learn to ski playfully at kindergarten age. Depending on the children's level of motoric and social development, the ideal starting age is between 4 and 5 years. Occasionally there are children who can already learn to ski at the age of 3 1/2 years.

How many days should the lessons last for our children?

During the holiday weeks, children's ski courses for beginners usually start on Sunday or Monday. The program is designed in such a way that the best learning results are achieved when your children take part in the ski course throughout the week. So they don't miss the final event (race, etc.) and experience a great week with their group. For advanced children the learning success usually kicks in on the third day.

Is it better to put our child in a group lesson or a private tuition?

The group lessons are generally recommended for beginners. Learning together with peers is more fun. The children are not constantly in the focus and have the possibility to catch their breath between the individual exercises, while the other children are on it. In order not to underchallenge highly talented children, a private ski instructor is recommended.

Can we join our child with a private instructor?

Yes, that's possible. Some providers even offer special family offers. Otherwise, you can simply book a private instructor for children or adults and inform the ski school after booking that you would like to go together.
