San Rocco (Livigno)

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Off to San Rocco in Livigno this weekend.

We're taking our nephews (10 and 14) on their first ever ski holiday (well boarding for them).

Any recommendations on any after ski activities, where to go? Also are there any child friendly bars for a quick apres ski drink?!

Am hoping that after a few days lessons we'll be able to take the boys around the main ski area with us in the afternoon (they're beginners but not total beginners) so any advice on appropriate blues to take them on?

Any advice/ thoughts much appreciated


Very Happy

@MCL, Marco's at the bottom of lift 18 Doss is great for a drink and a bite at any time, im sure its child friendly. Theres also a bakery/coffee shop called Dolce Passione a few hundred meters up the road from Marco's that does incredible little bite sized sweet things for less than a euro a pop. Great to call into on the way home for a coffee and a nibble. The Stalet and the Hotel Allegra at the bottom of the Carosello can be pumping apres on a good day, but not sure how child friendly.

If you take the carosello gondola to the top theres a short blue with a two man chair called Baby Lac Salin. Its fun, the snow is usually good and youre right next to the Carosello restaurant (get the pizzas at lunchtime!). Alternatively, the Cassana lift at the opposite end of town is comfy and fast and the piste is a decent length and manageable for confident beginners. It might be a bit ropey in the afternoon though as its relatively low down. Theres a food van at the bottom of the Cassana lift that does amazing Bresaola Piadinas (piadine?).

If you take the yellow Tagliede gondola to the top, theres a speedy 4 man chair and a lovely sunny, wide, long and gentle blue run underneath it. Just ride the gondola back down after as there are a few steepish pitches on the lower half of the mountain.

Be careful of the long blue run through the trees on the Mottolino side - its generally nice, but it can get bumpy or icy where it narrows into the forest, better to check first before taking beginners down it.

Have fun!

@element, thanks for all the info that's really helpful.
We'll look out for those places and get studying a piste map Very Happy

Hoping the snow holds up for another week!

Hi
You've also chosen the week of La Skieda, the telemark festival. There are lots of events on during the day and evening associated with the event. Most importantly the event holds lots of kids lessons for all levels. It might be a great opportunity for your nephews to learn to tele.
Have a great time, oh and the brewery is very child friendly and does great food as well as very nice beer!

@Teleman, that sounds great.

I think we'll be paying the brewery a visit or two! Toofy Grin
