Ski Touring in Bormio - Routes up to 4,000 m!

Skimo Bormio. Did you know that we have more than 350 routes available for ski touring? From the Valle dei Forni to the Val di Rezzalo, from the Cima San Colombano to summits of the Val Viola, get your skis and skins ready (not forgetting your self rescue equipment) because there are so many mountains to conquer here!

 Ski touring is a sport with a long tradition but it is also very much in fashion at the moment among skiers who love the call of the mountains.

The resorts of the Alta Valtellina are better suited to ski touring than virtually anywhere in the world. Our valleys offer hundreds of mountain summits, almost all of which can be reached on skis, with climbs of up to 2,000 m and glaciers where you can ski until April.  A true paradise for this sport, wouldn’t you agree? There are more than 350 routes across the valleys of Bormio, Valfurva, Valdidentro, Valdisotto, Sondalo and Livigno. There are routes for all, ranging from simple ones close to the Alpine skiing runs, to big climbs of mighty mountains, such as the Gran Zebrù!

As an added bonus, many of these routes take in mountain huts and restaurants. The ideal places to refuel after a tiring day on skis!

Ski Touring

Ski touring is a sport where physical endurance, skiing technique and knowledge of the mountains are fundamental. If you are a beginner, you should approach this sport gradually, with the correct degree of caution and the right approach.
Remember that you are not on the prepared pistes and, therefore, it is crucial that you have the necessary equipment.

Advice from the Alpine Guides

You should never leave anything to chance when heading out on a ski touring trip and clothing and equipment are important factors when it comes to being well-prepared.
Clothing and equipment are important factors for this sport. Dress in layers, wearing the standard 3 layers of technical sporting clothing Bormio Mountain Guides

The Alpine Guides of Bormio recommend wearing the standard 3 layers of technical sporting clothing. 

The first layer, a base layer, should be thermal and breathable. The second should be insulating and the third should be protective. You should let your body adapt to the different weather conditions and to the differences between ascending and descending.

 The basic ski touring equipment comprises ski touring boots, ski crampons for icy sections, convertible ski touring bindings and, of course, skis and poles.

Skimo Bormio is a resort where you can find experts to help introduce you to this incredible sport in the best possible way. Contact the Bormio Mountain Guides to learn about the basic techniques and how to approach the mountains safely. You can also contact them for advice on hiring or purchasing equipment in specialist shops.
