Freeride

Alta Valtellina and Livigno resorts provide many opportunities to satisfy the freeride fans. From 2013 is active the Freeride Project which consists of a series of initiatives (first of all the local avalanche bulletin) to promote safety in the off-piste skiing. Among the activities are related courses, excursions with guides, heli-skiing.
