Bormio is proud of it's 80 km of ski runs going from 1,200 metres right up to 3000 metres. Their position always means that on a sunny day, you can always ski in the sun which is a great plus.
With the one ski pass you can ski on 2 sides of the mountain, the Valecetta side and the San Colombano one. Bormio makes up the "Alta Valtellina" ski area with 250km of pistes with just one ski pass and a free bus service to Bormio, S. Caterina, Livigno, San Colombano and Valdidentro.
Bormio is famous for its Stelvio piste which hosted the world alpine ski championships in 1985 and 2005, the finals of the world cup in 2000 and 2007 and every year the men's downhill.
There isn't only downhill skiing in Bormio though, you can also try cross country skiing, telemark skiing, ski mountaineering, snowboarding and excursions with snow rackets.
