After Monday evening's celebration, Tuesday morning we boarded a motor coach for Livigno, Italy. Livigno offered 29 sq miles of terrain, or more skiing then we could ski in a day, maybe even a week. Most of the trails were above the treeline, and in the clouds with poor visibility.
The clouds and no treeline offered all kinds of challenge. I had issues with vertigo, since it was difficult at time determine the fall line and pitch of the trail. I tried to stay near lift stanchions, or trail markers to help me determine what I was skiing. I also found following a more experience skier helped the a lot.
After a few hours on the slopes I headed in to town for a nice leisurely lunch and a little duty-free shopping. I really didn't buy much except a couple of bottles of wine. Many of the Italian wines for sale were excellent, and the prices a fraction of what they are in the US. I wish I could have brought them home with me. I settled for buying just what I could consume by the end of the trip, so it was party time in my room.
