On the border between Italy and Switzerland lies Livigno, where nature unleashes its extraordinary magnificence. The landscape and nature of the resort, a veritable pearl nestled in the Rhaetian Alps,
is equalled only by a very few.
In summer, the green valleys and pointed steeples lit up by the sun give Livigno a candidly relaxing appearance. Now that winter is upon us, however, it’s the snow that creates a magical atmosphere, covering the peaks of Little Tibet with its white cloak.Nature indeed
, but not only. Livigno is an out and out open-air gym
and the many athletes who choose the resort at high-altitude every year to prepare their sporting events are well-aware of this. Besides the athletes, countless sports enthusiasts take advantage of this mountain paradise to train and unwind,
taking a break from their increasingly hectic daily lives.

, when it will be possible to ski on the snows of Livigno once again.
The ring is prepared specially by experts using the tried and tested snow-farming technique.
