Skiing in Bormio

In Bormio, you can ski all year round! The lifts are open almost 365 days a year. In winter in Bormio, Santa Caterina Valfurva and Valdidentro. In summer, on the Stelvio glacier.

We are one of the most famous resorts in the Alps for skiing. Our slopes include the piste with the longest descent in Italy (more than 1,800 metres from top to bottom!) and the largest summer skiing area in Europe. The lifts are running virtually all the time here!

In Bormio, there is no off-season for skiing. Since skis first arrived here as a way of getting around, Bormio has had a strong skiing culture which has shaped our identity. Today, we are known all around the globe for the World Cup downhill races, as well as the 2026 Milan-Cortina Winter Olympic Games and as one of Europe's best destinations for summer skiing.

Winter skiing in Bormio

Winter is, of course, the ideal season for skiing. Between December and April the three ski domains in the area, Bormio Ski, Santa Caterina Valfurva and Cima Piazzi Happy Mountain (Valdidentro), offer a total of 110 km of pistes and 36 ski lifts. A single skipass for a unique location with a unique offering.

Bormio, for a truly vertical skiing experience

Bormio’s ski area features the piste with the longest descent in the whole of Italy. A vertical drop of 1,800 metres from an altitude of 3,000 metres on the Cima Bianca to the centre of Bormio at 1,200 metres. And then, there is the legendary Stelvio piste! The route used by the pros for the World Cup downhill races is famed for challenging the skills and legs of even the world’s best skiers!

Santa Caterina Valfurva, a skier’s paradise

The resort of Santa Caterina Valfurva is a rare example of a development in an environmental protection area. Indeed, it is one of just a handful of ski resorts in Italy which lies fully within the wild and stunning surroundings of a national park, in this case the Stelvio National Park. On some winter mornings, after fresh snow has fallen, Santa Caterina looks like a miniature version of Finland, with the trees piled high with snow, creating a fairytale appearance.

Cima Piazzi-San Colombano, feel at home on the snow.

The Cima Piazzi-San Colombano ski area is perfect for a family skiing holiday. The pistes are easy and always sunny. The restaurants and mountain lodges have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The facilities on the pistes are kid-friendly. And to top it all off, there is even a bobsleigh monorail!

Summer skiing in Bormio

In summer, skiing moves up to the Stelvio Pass. Or rather, the glacier above Passo Stelvio which, among other things, is the largest summer skiing resort in the Alps.

Just a few numbers to give you an idea:
More than 20 km of pistes ranging between the Stelvio Pass (2,760 m) and Monte Cristallo (3,450 m).
6 lifts, including 2 cable cars which connect the Stelvio Pass with Livrio;
8 pistes, all graded red or blue; 1
off-piste trail for springtime skiing;
2 cross-country skiing pistes (one at the pass, one at Livrio) and the Agonistica Cristallo;
1 piste for speed skiing.

In addition to being superb for summer skiing, the Stelvio is also famous in Italy and abroad as being the place to learn to ski. It continues to enjoy a reputation as a great place to learn, where you can take your first steps on snow or improve your skills, whether you are a snowboarder, a downhill skier or a cross-country skier.

The glacier is generally open from May to November, though it's best to check the opening dates before heading for the pass!
