Bormio Ski Resort Guide

About the Resort

This is a most popular resort that started life as a 17th century Roman spa town. It has an attractive town centre with narrow cobbled streets and although it is in a remote area it's road network has been improved and transfer times are now nearer 3 hours from the airport. Reliable free shuttle buses service the slopes and a short 15 minute walk from the town centre brings you to the gondola station. There is a mixture of self catering and hotel accommodation.

About the Mountains near Bormio

The resort has a good mix of high pistes and low wooded slopes. Most of which face north-west. Some have complained at the lack of newer lifts and the fact that some lift links are only available during weekends and busy periods. The runs above Bormio are snow sure. Experts will not find too much to keep them happy here and the intermediates may find some runs a bit too tough although the outlying mountains offer plenty for the fledgling intermediary. Beginners suffer from not being able to easily find slopes to graduate to and are beter off skiing in nearby Santa Caterina.

Apr├Ęs Ski at Bormio
