Is there an event that combines enduro, excursions, sharing moments and individual challenges and teams all in one place with breathtaking views and epic trails? Yes, of coure! GREAT DAYS at Carosello 3000 :)
The event started on Friday with a descent at sunset together with the legendary Hans Rey.
Saturday is the time for the Tutti Frutti Team Challenge: several teams have challenged each other in a treasure hunt on 45km of trails with 3500m in altitude.
Sunday adrenaline pure with the 3KUP & DOWN: 1000 meters in altitude and a trail without end, to be covered as many times as possible in 4 hours.
A unique event of its kind, a great family that come together in an atmosphere of friendship and fun.
I'll be waiting for you next year to have fun together!
After a few days from the end of the GREAT DAYS we are back to the trails of Carosello 3000, to appreciate all the work done is not enough a weekend.

With the new cable car of San Rocco in less than 10 minutes you can walk the 1000 meters in altitude, I advise you to keep your phone or camera at hand because the landscape that you see while climbing is really amazing!
Even during lunch, the panorama is not lacking: the area of the Ristoro Carosello 3000 has the best views across the whole of the Livingo valley as well as the unspoilt Federia Valley.

Here are the 11 trails that you will find in Carosello 3000, all on Trail Forks. Look at them HERE :)
COAST TO COAST - SCENIC FLOW TRAIL
The Coast to Coast is a trail that takes the features of flow riding on an epic adventure with a spectacular view of the Livigno Valley. The trail connects the top of the Carosello 3000 San Rocco gondola with the Livigno Centro gondola and the Costaccia Hut. From the Coast to Coast trail you can continue on to the Roller Coaster for an incredible 10 km of non-stop riding.
ROLLER COASTER - FLOW TRAIL
The Roller Coaster is a pure flow trail: sequences of bends, berms, high-speed straight sections never steeper than 10% and a rhythm that means you almost never have to touch your pedals or brakes. A rollercoaster ride with breathtaking panoramic views of Livigno's lake and wonderful scenery through the woods. This is a favourite trail of the MTB legend Hans “No Way” Rey.
BIKERS UNITED - FLOW & ENDURO MIX
Covering a distance of 4.2 km, Bikers United combines flow and enduro style riding, bringing together fluidity and technique to offer bikers a hybrid-style riding experience. When linked together with the Blueberry Line, Bikers United offers an almost 1000-metre non-stop descent of the mountain. A rare find at any mountain resort.
BLUEBERRY LINE -TECHNICAL FLOW
The Blueberry Line is a flow trail with technical sections, obstacles and berms in quick succession. The trail twists and turns through woodland and panoramic clearings. A hidden gem winding through the trees that will make you love mountain biking even more.
Look out for the "blueberry eye", a 360° berm on the trail!
H-DREAM (HUTR) - FLOW WITH AIR-TIME
The H-Dream (Hutr) is a route that features wide berms and rollers offering pro-bikers some air time. The trail is a great one for speed lovers, with the chance of reaching up to 40 km/h! The name of the trail is a tribute to the Hutr Group who were among the first to believe in the MTB project at Carosello 3000.
S-WAY - SPEED & JUMPS
The S-Way is a giant S built into the dividing dip between Carosello 3000’s 2 bike areas. It's a short trail with the potential for high speed, as well as tabletops and a halfpipe. It joins the end of the H-Dream (Hutr) trail.
ENDURO - ENDURO
One of the most recently-built trails, the Enduro is a rocky trail that is true to its name. With both steep and technical sections, this trail follows a sharp ridge with a bird's eye view of the town of Livigno. This is one for expert bikers.
BIKE ACADEMY - LEARNING TRAIL / AREA
The Bike Academy trail covers a distance of 4.9 km from the top of the Vetta chairlift to the Costaccia Hut. This trail is fully dedicated to the mastering of mountain bike techniques and is made up of 8 exercise areas (balance, step downs, switchbacks, rock gardens, north shore, drops, jumping and skinnies) ready to gear riders up for any type of mountain route.
MADONON - SCENIC TRAIL
A cycle trail that takes you to the famous Madonna delle Rezze statue and the alpine bivouac, Involt da li Resa, with one of the most stunning viewpoints in the whole valley. Along the route you also get a view of the Bernina glacier. Watch out: because of its very steep dangerous sections, mountain bikes are prohibited from using the path which descends from the Madonon to Plascianet.
FEDERIA SINGLE TRAIL - NATURAL TRAIL
A singletrack which leads from the top of the Carosello 3000 San Rocco gondola into the heart of the unspoilt Federia Valley. With a total altitude difference of more than 500 metres in just 3.7 km, this trail is full of steep sections and bumpy crossings. When it reaches the flat, the trail joins a dirt road which runs through the whole valley and comes out in the Calcheira area.
PANORAMICA (SENTIERO DELLE TEE) - SCENIC TRAILA
Wonderful panoramic route that follows the whole of the valley along the mountain side, passing among the old farming houses, known as “Le Tee”. The central part of the route is completely level, can be ridden in either direction and is easily reached from the mid-station of the Livigno Centro gondola.
