Waiting to know the contents of the Dpcm that will come into force on December 4th, Livigno presents the novelties that it has been working on in recent months to ensure, as soon as it will be possible, a skiing holiday in complete safety.
In the last few months we have worked tirelessly to arrive prepared to the appointment with the beginning of the winter season" comments Luca Moretti, President of APT Livigno.
Weeks of proposals, evaluations and meetings of all those involved in the work of Little Tibet have led Livigno to come up with novelties, measures and preventive policies to guarantee, as soon as possible, a skiing holiday in complete safety: a series of actions capable of safeguarding the health of workers, residents and visitors, monitoring the situation in the locations, protect visitors who choose to book accommodation and services from now until May and ensure, at the same time, an unforgettable stay.
We have not only turned our attention to the ski lifts: we have reconsidered the offer in its entirety, following the indications given by the Government and the Superior Institute of Healthcare to guarantee travelers and athletes who choose Little Tibet for their preparation an increasingly safe stay, without giving up the rich opportunities that Livigno has always offered and will continue to offer - comments Luca Moretti, President of APT Livigno - The hard teamwork has allowed us to maintain, albeit with some necessary precautions, everything that was already present in the our offer and at the same time to enrich it with proposals, services and novelties created ad hoc to make every visitor live unique and unforgettable experiences. Today we would already be in able to guarantee a full reopening in safety: we are confidently awaiting the green light to inaugurate the 2020-21 winter season as soon as possible and to all intents and purposes".
This is how Livigno presents the most important news, measures and policies that have been worked on in the recently and which will allow for a rapid and well-organised reopening as soon as it
will be possible.
FREE CANCELLATION POLICY FOR HOTELS, FLATS AND SERVICES
Thanks to the cooperation of the operators and in collaboration with the ATC of Livigno, we have arrived to the creation of a cancellation policy plan that allows you to book the holiday in the “Little Tibet” with serenity and flexibility. According to the chosen formula, hotels and adherent flats are marked with a gold or silver stamp. The structures that display the gold stamp apply the free cancellation policy for whatever reason throughout the winter season, until May 2021, while hotels and flats with silver stamp only for the months of December and January*. Free cancellation policy are also applyed to some of the major services offered by the destination: it is possible to cancelling free of charge ski lessons booked through the Ski Schools of Livigno until 6:00 p.m. on the day before the lesson or even receive a full refund of the Skipass already purchased in case you are positive at Covid. To ensure greater protection of your holiday, you can take out an insurance policy with the Allianz insurance company at the end of your booking on livigno.eu.
*Before booking, we recommend that you carefully read the cancellation policy at https://www.livigno.eu/cancellazione-gratuita-vacanza.
On the"Info Coronavirus"page, you will find all the latest information on anti-Covid measures and initiatives implemented by the locality. A FAQ section will help you find the answers to the most frequently asked questions asked by our readers.
SKIPASS: FROM ONLINE PURCHASE TO "DRIVE THROUGH" COLLECTION
The online purchase of the Skipass would not be enough to avoid queues and gatherings for the pick-up of the same at conventional ticket offices. For this reason, Livigno has thought about points of “Drive Through" collection: once you have completed the purchase directly online, all you need to do is to drive to one of the points set up, where it will be possible to pick up by car the Skipass in complete safety, without getting out of your car and without creating queues and assemblages.
MOLECULAR SWABS AND RAPID ANTIGENIC TESTS
It is important to monitor the health situation, day after day. To cope with to this important need and thus protect the health of workers, residents and visitors, Livigno has equipped itself with molecular buffers and rapid antihygienic tests that you can submit in situations of emergency or uncertainty. In addition to contributing to monitoring constant of the health situation in the locality, this will allow to have an answer without going to the centres outside the valley. In case of tourists who are positive for the test, Livigno has already structured itself to guarantee safe places where guests can spend the mandatory quarantine period.
NOT ONLY SKIING: ALTERNATIVE ACTIVITIES TO LIVE THE SNOW SAFELY
To reduce crowds and queues in the proximity of the lifts and along the trails already available for activities without skis on their feet, Livigno has thought of to encourage all those activities that do not require the use of the ski lifts and that have always made up a large part of the winter offer of the Piccolo TIbet. Among these, besides cross-country skiing, which can be practiced along the ring set up right in the centre of Livigno and already from a month of skiing by amateur and professional skiers, there are also fat biking, skating on ice at the Ice Arena, horseback riding or snowmobile tours, ski touring , snowshoes, ice climbing and paragliding. In the last few weeks, the number of trails and managed routes has been implemented, monitored and ready to be covered in total autonomy thanks to the indications and the signage. Our Mountain Guides are always available to accompany you on these routes and on routes of greater difficulty according to your needs. For those who prefer to admire the Livigno panorama while relaxing at the rhythm of quiet walks, there is the Winter Trail, a 20 km route in beaten snow that starts from the heart of Livigno and winds through the entire valley. There are plenty of activities for the little ones too: the new funpark is a great innovation, in building right near the village centre, where you can have fun sliding on the snow cool with toboggan and inflatables.
CHECK & GO: TO BETTER ORGANIZE EVERY EXCURSION
After the great success of the summer season, it has been re-proposed for the winter the Check&Go, a simple, fast and intuitive way to choose the best path for your excursion even before your departure. At the entrance to the most popular trails during the winter, panels representing a QRcode have been positioned: we request at each hiker just frame it to check in on the trail and do the rest there think the MyLivigno App and the official website. Before you even put your backpack on your shoulder, in fact, hikers will be able to access the dedicated section of the App or the page dedicated livigno.eu/check-and-go to check at any time the turnout on the various routes and choose the one with the least number of visitors and most suitable for their excursion, to enjoy the snow of Little Tibet in complete tranquillity.
WINTER CHALLENGE: REACH THE LESSER KNOWN SPOTS
Little Tibet is known to most people for its wide choice and variety of paths and trails, for its 115km of tracks and for the abundance of open and unspoilt spaces to explore. For this reason, Livigno has thought to bring travellers and sport lovers to discover little known spots and places. A way to make the surrounding nature more and more known, but also to take advantage of new routes and make those already known less crowded and more practicable. But that's not all! On the APP My Livigno the places to reach will soon be available: once chosen and reached one of the spots, you will earn precious points, assigned according to the difficulty of the route, to participate in the Winter Challenge. Up for grabs, weekends to live Livigno in summer, week-long stays and ski passes to be used for the 2021/2022 winter season and many other prizes offered by Livigno's sponsors and partners.
GLAMOROUS SHOPPING AND EXCELLENT FOOD AND WINE
What makes Livigno perfect and special even for those who do not like sports and high altitude experiences are the possibility of a glamorous and slow shopping among boutiques and exclusive shops and the rich offer of excellent food and wine. Livigno's shopkeepers and restaurateurs, in compliance with current regulations, are already at work and are eagerly awaiting visitors for Christmas shopping and more.
