Anyone in Livigno?

I find I will be there for a couple of days (Thursday/Friday) this week, and will likely get a couple of hours skiing on Frisay. Anyone there to advise on current conditions Puzzled

TIA

I was there last week (came home Saturday). The conditions were pretty decent spring snow; hard until softened by the sun. On the Motolino side the Trepalle runs softened first so we did those first thing and then the runs on the Livigno Valley side were good from mid morning onwards, and really nice in the afternoon (but getting more slushy in the treeline). The run along the ridge stayed sweet all day, until you dropped below the gondola station, where it softened.

On the Carosella side, the Federia runs were hard in the morning, softening nicely in the afternoon, never got slushy. The run along the ridge from the top of the 16 chair (heading toward Costaccia was lovely all week, as were the top 2/3 of the runs from the 19 chair, the lower section of these runs started the day hard, and then softened, but not too much... the blue under chair number 28 was also good all day.

Obviously the runs serviced by the valley drags were very soft at the end of day and a few have closed since we came home.

But all in all we were very happy with the state of the snow (my kids loved the very soft snow in the afternoon). Everything was open last week, but I realise that the sun takes its toll quickly on the snow at this time of year...

If you literally only have a couple of hours to ski, my bet would be to go to the Carosella side if those precious hours are only in the morning, or the Motolino side if you will be skiing only in the afternoon. Hope this helps...

Update on this - am leaving Livigno this morning after 2 very busy days (1 with business, the 2nd skiing) and have been very impressed. Skied on Mottolino side in the morning, and Carosello in the afternoon - this was the opposite of @jilly, advice above, but the way it worked out as we had a local instructor to guide us for 1/2 a day and this was what worked for her. Considering it's mid-April, and there is no snow in the village or lower down the slopes, the conditions were great yesterday - morning was a bit icy, with lots of sugary artificial snow, but fine really, and the Carosello was great in the afternoon. Add in blue skies, sunshine and very few people, and it was a great day skiing. Legs are feeling it today though Shocked

Setting off now back into Austria for a day/night in St Anton - not likely to be skiing but there are worse ways of spending the day Very Happy
