The report of a sports association
The experience of Sporting Spirit Ski Team Disabili Lombardia
Sporting Spirit Ski Team Disabili Lombardia is an association member of Paralympic Italian Committee that deals with Alpine Skiing for physical disabled and that for quite some years has chosen Livigno as the destination for its activities. During the winter season the Association organizes weekends and activities in the snow for adults and children afflicted with physical diseases. Here is the report of its experience of Ski sitting in Livigno.
“We've been visiting Livigno for many years now, in order to offer disabled kids and adults of our Association the possibility of skiing in different periods of the season, and always with very good results. The access to Mottolino gondola is especially easy for the disabled, thanks to the wide indoor parking provided with an elevator that arrives directly at the departure of the lift; the cabins are easily accessible even by those who use electronic wheelchairs or also big manual ones. Once at heights, all lifts (drag lifts or chair lifts) on the Mottolino side can be used for Ski sitting, with slopes of various levels of difficulty, and even the Refuge M’eating Point is accessible to everyone.
Getting to Livigno from Trepalle it's possible to go ski-sitting even starting from Eira Pass, by taking the chair lift Yepi Lift that reaches the arrival of Mottolino gondola and leads into a blue piste suitable for beginner and expert skiers”.
