Skiing in Bormio

Bormio, in the heart of the Stelvio National Park, is one of the most famous ski area in Italy, also thanks to the downhill races of the World Cup on the Stelvio slope, which from 3000 m. goes down to 1200 m in the village. The town lies in the valley, known since ancient times as the ‘Magnificent Land’, surrounded by three mountains - Cima Piazzi, Vallecetta and Reit- set as an amphitheater.

Cross-country skiers can find trails on the Vallecetta and on the entire Alute plain (10 km), in San Colombano near the alp or in Valdidentro on the Piandelvino plain.
The High Valtellina is a boundless theater for mountaineering ski expeditions of any grade and difficulty. Every year in February, the local CAI section organizes the Folgore Ski Mountaineering Rally, departing from Bormio.

The town offers a wide cultural offer, and much more. Enjoy a relaxing afternoon at the Bormio’s Baths. 'Bormio Pass' is a single card for skiing on the slopes and relax in Spas.
