You might find it hard to believe but you really can ski in the summer, indeed it is something you have to do in Bormio! On the Stelvio glacier, the lifts are usually open from the end of May to the start of November.
It is simply the largest summer ski resort in the Alps. This is where the greats of Italian skiing come for their summer training camps. Experience the strange and unusual sensation of wandering around Bormio in your sandals and then putting on your ski suit and heading up to 3,000 m on the Stelvio. A taste of winter in the height of summer!
