The Ski Resort

The Bormio ski area in the Italian state of Lombardy boasts an array of demanding runs which will particularly appeal to advanced skiers and experts. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that Bormio has hosted over 45 World Cup races to date. Some 80% of the roughly 50 km of runs are covered by snowmaking facilities, making skiing possible even if the region isn’t currently blessed with serviceable natural snow.

The town of Bormio in the valley at 1,225 metres above sea level is connected to the ski area via a gondola linking to the Bormio 2000 mountain station. If you’re new to skiing, this is a great place to hone your skills on the nursery slopes served by magic carpet and surface lifts. The Gormiti Park, the ski resort’s children’s area, nestles directly by the base station in Bormio. There are plenty of local ski instructors on hand here to help kids find their feet on the snow, while youngsters are also free to pull on some skates and take to an ice rink.

Advanced skiers should, however, continue further up the mountain on the chairlift to Cima Bianca. This marks the top-out point in the ski area at 3,012 metres. The mountain station feeds the two red runs Stella Alpina and Bimbi al sole, which then branch off into further intermediate trails further down. Experts like to head for the black-marked Bertulle trail which runs down from below the Cimino mountain station and heads back towards Bormio 2000. Powder hounds should look no further than the two off-piste areas Vallone and Skiers’ Spot (Posto degli Sciatori). The easiest way to reach Vallone is from Cima Bianca, while the Skiers’ Spot area is located in the forested slopes flanking the S. Ambrogio trail.

Snowboarders and freestyle fans can look forward to the Snowpark Bormio, which offers an array of different features across its 500-meter length. The park is subdivided into three lines of varying difficulty as well as a challenging rail line. The terrain park is located next to the Stella Alpina run and is best accessed via the Bormio 2000 – Pian die Larici chairlift.

On Mountain Dining

Skiing can certainly be a hungry business. Luckily, Bormio offers numerous ways of exploring the regional culinary delights over a nice glass of wine from the region. The mountain station Bormio 2000 is itself home to several restaurants.

If you’re looking for incredible views to accompany delicious food, look no further than Cima Bianca, the ski area’s highest point. This is where you’ll find the Ristorante Heaven 3000.

Must-Ski Runs

The intermediate Stelvio trail is widely known as one of the most technically demanding and spectacular runs worldwide – a view underlined by its repeated use as a World Cup course for the men’s downhill event.

If you feel up to it, you can take the Stelvio all the way back down into the valley to Bormio. But if that sounds a little bit much like hard work, the blue Bosco Basso is an enjoyable, somewhat mellower option.

In addition to skiing, Bormio is also known for its thermal waters. This makes it the perfect destination for anyone seeking rest and relaxation. Wellness lovers can take their pick between the Bagni Vecchi, with its thermal water course and Roman baths, and Bagni Nuovi, which features a generously sized outdoor area.


Après-Ski and Nightlife

The “Be White – Après Ski & More” bar at the base station in Bormio is the place to be for drinks, good music and a top-notch party atmosphere. Taking a break at “Be White” is an essential part of a day’s skiing in Bormio! And if you get a little peckish, the bar also serves snacks.
