I’m at the start gate.
I tighten my bindings.
Grab the handles.
Feel my entire body extend from my hands to the board, as if we were a single being.
My feet extend along the board, I can feel up to 50 centimetres in front of me.
I feel everything.
I move the board underneath me and feel how far it goes.
I feel good.
I don’t feel cold, I don’t feel hot, I breathe quietly, my diaphragm is relaxed.
I can see clearly, I adjust my mask a little and feel really centred.
I’m where I need to be, in my place.
And when I feel like this, I know I’ll make good time.
I’ll do the competition well.
It's 06:01 pm, and Livigno can officially feel the thrill of the Olympic dream. Indeed, has just concluded in Lausanne the conference in which the 86 members of the International Olympic Committee expressed their preference among the two candidate countries for the 2026 Winter Olympics: Italy and Sweden. Now we can say it: #DreamingTogether!
With 47 votes in favor of Italy, Milan-Cortina is confirmed as the site of the Winter Olympic Games in 2026, and Livigno will be part of this incredible project since it will host the Freestyle and Snowboard competitions, as well as the Olympic Village.
Warm sun and clear skies perfectly describe the Good Morning! we enjoyed from Little Tibet today. At dawn there were already visitors kitted out with rucksacks and walking shoes wandering along the many pathways in the area in order to spend time enjoying nature with their families.
Among these were Davide, Elisabetta and their children: “Livigno was where we came on our first holiday as a couple and, today, as our family has grown, we still find it is the perfect place for our holidays. We know we’ll be able to enjoy happy, carefree, relaxing days here, having enormous fun with our children. The bond we have with this place is inexplicable - it stems from our hearts and reconciles perfectly with our minds.”

Aufguss experience in the Finnish sauna

Aquagranda welcomes true sauna experts and masters, who guide guests in experimenting with special Aufguss rituals and entertain them with a real show.
The sun rises over Mottolino with the feeling of something new in the air - the fragrance of long summer days - and the village seems to bloom along with the bright colour of the snowdrops on the green meadows. The mountain peaks, however, are still covered in snow as if to remind us just how amazing the season that’s just ended was. And who could blame them!
There are so many bikes out and about in the village now, with families, youngsters and couples all in the saddle. Indeed, the passion for two wheels finds fertile ground at this time of year thanks to the many activities - both new and revised - Livigno offers fans of this sport. Mountain bike, enduro, down-hill, cross country, road bike, flow country… Visitors are truly spoiled for choice, especially as these are just a few of the many weekly activities they can do on their two-wheeled friends.
