One of the most beautiful and popular ski destinations in Italy.
Winter in Bormio? It's all about skiing. The credit goes to the prestige of the place which, also thanks to the Downhill World Cup race that takes place every year on the legendary Pista Stelvio, is counted among the most beautiful in Italy.
In winter, people come to Bormio mainly for skiing, downhill, cross-country skiing and ski touring.
Ski mountaineering, above all, is an experience to try, alone or with alpine guides, to discover unspoiled places and breathtaking landscapes with skis on. The effort of the climb will be rewarded by a funny descent on the fresh snow.
Lovers of cross-country skiing can benefit from the kilometers of circuit, suitable for both expert skiers and beginners with the desire to try new experiences in the open air, while those who prefer the descent can go down to the valley along the extraordinary mountain slope sliding on the snow with skis on. After all, winter in Bormio is full of adrenaline. You can do biathlon, a discipline belonging to the Nordic skiing group, or telemark (skiing technique typical of alpine skiing and ski mountaineering, also called "free heel skiing"). And then freeride for those who love off-piste activity in fresh snow and snowboarding for those who prefer the board to skis.
If you don't ski, during the winter in Bormio you can experience the thrill of a dog sled ride, choosing Husky Trekking or Sled Dog. You can choose various itineraries to be covered with snowshoes on your feet or experience ice skating and curling at the Palasport in Bormio and on the outdoor rink in Santa Caterina.
But, in Bormio, you can also relax in the spas. After a day spent on the snow, there is nothing better than regenerating in the hot atmosphere of a sauna or inside a heated swimming pool. All this, facing the enchanting view of the Alps.
