Ski Livigno
Beginners, intermediates and families are well catered for in this fabulous resort and the excellent snow record means that your chances of great ski opportunities are high. The resort also offers a 3km pedestrianised centre, scattered with a great selection of bars, restaurants and shops.

Ski Sauze d' Ouix
Sauze d’Oulx
This resort is the place to go if you’re after a party-mad atmosphere to keep you busy when you’re away from the slopes. Thousands of people return year after year because of the awesome atmosphere and is particularly suited to intermediate and advanced skiers.
