In the direction of another region skating - Motolino - to an altitude of 2349 m raises powerful telekabina.

Experienced skiers will find on the map a few "black" trails, but they are flat. You can ride off-piste, but then you may need to guide, but it is quite expensive.

Suffice interesting "red" route leading from Karosello down to the Federation, they will like the skiers who have some experience. For medium-sized skiers suit almost the whole area of the valley of Livigno, long descent below Mottolino considered the best.

For lovers of riding comfort is a wide choice of slopes. There are some very long descents Passo-d'Era-thiol, Monte della Neve Sponde and Kostachchya - fun and easy route. Descent below the lift vetti in the upper part of the sector Kostachchya - excellent, very long slope for beginners. Along the lower slopes Kostachchi, a wide selection of children's trails.
