Bormio Resort Details

Bormio is a popular, upmarket ski resort situated in the central Alps in Italy’s Lombardy district, and protected by Alpine peaks from the cold northern wind. Bormio has a distinctly Italian flavour, and is unlike most other ski resorts in that equal importance is placed on off-slope activities and on the skiing.

Bormio does not have a traditionally Alpine centre, but is a typically medieval Italian village, with a wealth of history and Romanesque architecture that has been beautifully preserved in local museums, churches and palaces. There are a multitude of restaurants, cafés and bars from which to watch the world go by and absorb the charming atmosphere.

Skiing in

Despite its popularity, the skiing at Bormio is fairly limited with only 33kms of marked runs catering mainly for beginners and intermediates. However, the advantages of Bormio are that it is an excellent place to learn, with highly respected ski schools. Additionally, snow conditions are generally reliable with high, snow-sure pistes and woodland runs supplemented by artificial snow. The longest run at Bormio is six kilometres, and the pistes are linked by a system of 16 lifts.

Advanced skiing in Bormio

The ski resort offers few challenges for advanced or expert skiers (apart from a few decent off-piste routes) with only 30 per cent of the total slopes devoted to the upper levels of skiing expertise.

Intermediates skiing in Bormio

The men’s downhill course starts with a steep plunge but otherwise there is only a tough red for more experienced skiers. Many runs are less tough and ideal for intermediates.

Beginners skiing in Bormio

There are good nursery slopes but a lack of easy slopes to progress to.

Snowboarding skiing in Bormio

The new terrain park is the main attraction, though the slopes may be too steep for beginners and not much for experienced boarders either.

Après ski skiing in Bormio

Although Bormio’s slopes are not the best in the Alps, the ski resort offers a profusion of alternative activities, both indoor and outdoor. Bormio is particularly well known for its spa/thermal treatments, and these are the perfect way to indulge a cold, aching body after a day’s skiing. Additional outdoor pastimes include: ice-skating, mono-skiing, snowboarding and horseback riding. Indoor facilities accommodate swimming, tennis, squash, sauna and fitness training.
