Mottolino Fun Mountain is getting ready to open to the public the first private work realized in view of the 2026 Winter Olympics, when the champions of half pipe, slopestyle and big air will compete here. It is a Service Center, unique of its type in Italy, inspired by models that are beginning to be developed today in the United States, or in neighboring Austria. The structure - for which 10 million euros have been invested - will open in December, in time for the coming season.
The lift station has been radically transformed: it will be a reference and meeting point not only for skiers, but for the entire community. In previous access area to the cabins, there is now a complex structured on two levels. On the ground floor there are all the activities related to skiing, the snowpark and the slopes - and in summer to the practice of mountain biking: equipment rentals, ski schools, ticket offices, warehouses.
But it is on the first level that the full potential of this structure is revealed. In a space of 200 square meters there is the Digital Cave, created for smartworking, gaming, streaming, video post production, bright and with a splendid view of the mountains. The Digital Cave is characterized by ultra-fast connection, modular meeting rooms, stations for online gaming, chat, information. Accessible by an elevator, it is an environment with a clean and essential design, ready to host professionals, entrepreneurs, tourists in smart working, as well as young athletes who want to have fun on digital platforms, share content and spend time together.
The innovation also concern catering, a central asset within a redevelopment project in an Olympic key. The new restaurant Kosmo Taste the Mountain - Livigno & AlpiNN, will provide a food offer based on the ethical philosophy Cook the Mountain of Norbert Niederkofler, chef three Michelin Stars and Stellaverde.
A vision focused on the use of local and seasonal ingredients, the reuse of waste and a personal relationship and close collaboration with local producers. The strategic direction of the new restaurant will be taken over by Mo-food, the holding company of the South Tyrolean chef Niederkofler and his partner Paolo Ferretti.
