Summers in Italy just got a whole lot better as Livigno introduces the all-new BikePass that now includes both sides of the valley – Mottolino and Carosello 3000. Be it downhill or enduro, freeride, all-mountain or family biking, situated at 1,816 m/ 5,962 ft above sea level, Livigno has everything a mountain biker could ask for and more on one single pass.

The picturesque alpine valley of Livigno features two distinct chair-lift accessed riding zones, Mottolino BikePark for the gravity orientated and on, the opposite side of the valley, Carosello 3000 – Mountain Park which tailors to Enduro and Flow-Country enthusiasts.

Livigno Bikepark

As the motto “Mountain is Fun” clearly indicates, the Mottolino Bikepark gives gravity enthusiasts plenty of opportunities to get those adrenaline kicks. With 13 trails weaving down the mountain, some shaped to fit beginners, while others are designed to challenge advanced riders, the bikepark has something in store for everyone. Additionally, the Slopestyle Area in the middle of the mountain is ready for tricksters to come and show their latest flips and whips whilst the North Shore Area in the forest, consisting of a number of different structures like catwalks, suspension bridges over bubbling streams and winding staircases, awaits the adventurous. Finally, if you have a trick on your mind that you always wanted to learn, the Big Air Bag located at the base of the Mottolino is the perfect spot. Needless to say, the trails are maintained daily to ensure the highest level of safety and fun possible. For more information on Mottolino Bikepark visit mottolino.it.

Livigno Bikepark

On the other side of Livigno, another mountain is awaiting fresh tire imprints: Carosello 3000 – Mountain Park. The motto here is “Mountain is Freedom”, and the trail design delivers just that! Endless flow across the beautiful mountain on a trail network that exceeds 50km. Designed in collaboration with MTB legend Hans “No Way” Rey and shaped under the expert eye of flow country architect Diddie Schneider, this new style of trail based on speed and pace ensures the safety required for beginners and families and delivers that ‘roller coaster feeling’ to expert bikers. Thanks to the cable cars and chair lifts there is only a few hundred metres of uphill, further adding to the accessibility of the trail network. More information and a detailed map can be found at carosello3000.com.

All in all, Livigno and the surrounding area boast over 3200km of GPS-mapped routes that can also be explored with expert bike guides or professional instructors for freeride, downhill, enduro, cross country and, why not, e-bike and fat bike, too.

The Livigno Bike Skill Center in the heart of the town also offers bike lessons for all abilities and guided tours where skilled instructors will take you on a journey to discover the regions’ best tracks and most attractive landscapes. The Bike Skill Center is also the perfect place for children of all ages to become familiar with the bike and improve riding techniques with skilled instructors on wooden boardwalks, across artificial structures and a fun 130m-long pumptrack.
