Resort Information

Looking for a resort that feels a bit more authentically Italian? Bormio is a medieval spa town that offers exactly that. The traffic-free town centre has loads of great shopping and, as you'd expect in Italy, plenty of foodie hotspots. Bormio lies at the bottom of the Stelvio Pass, close to the border with Switzerland. Its northerly aspect and great snowmaking facilities mean snow conditions are usually fantastic.

Skiing Information

Bormio is home to one of the biggest vertical drops in Europe (1800m) and the longest descent in Italy, which is why it's a staple on the World Cup calendar. Best for intermediates, there's a great network of reds and blues, as well as good facilities for beginners at the top of the gondola. Part of the Alta Valtellina ski area, Bormio is also the largest summer skiing resort in the Alps, thanks to the glacier on Passo Stelvio.
