Bormio is one of the most famous ski areas in the whole of the Alps.
The Ski World Cup was held here in 1985 and 2005 and every year FIS World Cup events take place on the famous Stelvio slope. With sections as steep as 63% and overall altitude gains of 987 metres the Stelvio slope is considered to be one of the most spectacular and challenging slopes in the world.
Both Stevio and Genziana ski slopes are equipped with an efficient artificial lighting system which makes the thrill of a night-time skiing trip possible.
The Bormio ski area is made up of around 50 km of slopes at altitudes ranging from 1225 to 3012 metres, 16 ski lifts and 20 ski slopes of varying difficulty levels for all levels of ability from beginners (with learner areas and blue slopes) to the more expert (with red and blue slopes).
Modern snowmaking equipment guarantees perfect snow cover on 90% of pistes and adequate grooming and maintenance of ski slopes.
The Bormio 2000 well-equipped and modern snowpark near the Stella Alpina slope is a snowboarders’ paradise for thrill and high adrenaline holidays. The snowpark has a superpipe and a series of jumps and humps suitable for the most expert and a beginners area for those who are trying their hands at snowboarding for the first time. A stereo system in one area electrifies the snowpark’s atmosphere even further.
