Not as pricey and not as dressy as a lot of the big resorts, Livigno is less fur coats and money talks than talking with your feet and ankles and whatever else you need to snowboard like a legend. It’s really cheap, the deal is that it’s in a duty free zone, so having a good time is probably cheaper than anywhere else. Run wise even beginners will get a good go here, with the multi-lane pistes starting from just off the town’s main drag. If you’re a bit more advanced the off piste slopes are just past them and if you haul yourself and your gear about 4kms upwards you’ll be on powder which runs along both sides of the suggestively scooping valley. Check out the other side of the Carosello which is quieter and has a bit more in the way fo terrain obstacles. There isn’t much at the uber challenging end but there’s a halfpipe and a park for playing on for freestylers, so this is a good resort choice for most boarders. You don’t even have to wear yourself down getting from one end of the 10km long main drag to the other, there are ski shuttles which take you all over.

Giovanni’s Hotel will do you a mean steak at the end of a long day boarding and KoKoDi will give you a good (very cheap) night out if that’s what you’re looking for.
