The holiday resort of Bormio has a lovely position at a close distance away from the Stelvio National Park, where holiday makers will find their paradise both in winter and summer. Those that love to exercise strenuous activities will enjoy the environment, but facilities are provided also for leisure visitors. Actually, Bormio is not only a ski resort it offers true recreation and relaxing holiday in the scenic mountain surroundings.
Not for a minute will you be bored, since multiple events are organized for any kind of sports fans.It gives the tourist possibility of experiencing the everyday life of a small town, the absolute opposite to regular ski resorts. Instead of large condominiums and modern hotels in the centre, you will find traditional buildings, churches, walk along cobblestone streets and see citizens of a small town in their everyday life.
Bormio's 1792 meter vertical drop is one of three biggest in Italy what makes the resort more attractive to skiers preferring long runs from the top of the mountain back down to the resort. The longest run is almost 14 kilometres long and you will find many more of similar length. The routes are artificially snowed so that the skiing conditions are guaranteed at the top level. Large vertical drop should not threaten beginners as the runs are rather gentle. Advanced skiers will have a bit limited choice but still should be satisfied with off-piste skiing.
