World Cup slopes: Stelvio and Deborah Compagnoni

Slopes of the champions. There are two world-famous alpine ski slopes in the Bormio area. Today as then, the Stelvio slope in Bormio and the Deborah Compagnoni slope in Santa Caterina Valfurva continue to make ski enthusiasts from all over the world dream.

Have you ever heard about the Stelvio Slope in Bormio? Probably, since the Stelvio Slope is considered one of the most technical and spectacular ski courses in the world. What about the name Deborah Compagnoni, does it ring a bell?She is the famous Olympic champion who was born and raised in Santa Caterina Valfurva and the slope in her home town is dedicated to her.

La Pista Stelvio

Inaugurated in 1982 for the first edition of the World Series, it became famous for hosting several international events as: two editions of the Alpine Ski World Championships in 1985 and 2005, two World Cup finals in 1995 and 2008 and, since 1993, it has been the stage for the men's World Cup downhill race.

Many are the names of those who have triumphed on this track, but we can certainly remember Michael Walchhofer, Hermann Maier, Bode Miller and the Italians Christof Innerhofer and Dominik Paris.

Technical details

3.250 metres long, a drop of 1.010 metres, starting at 2.255 metres, arriving in the heart of Bormio at 1.225 metres and 63% of gradient since the beginning ... this is the Stelvio Slope!

The most famous sections of the slope are: the Rocca jump, a 30-metre-long leap, the Canalino Sertorelli, a 300-metre-long sliding section, the Fontana Lunga bends, the famous Carcentina, a diagonal and counter-slope bend, without forgetting the very steep San Pietro wall, with its spectacular jump into the void of over 40 metres, and the final "schuss", a series of bends in the final part.

Last but not least, you can even enjoy the legendary Stelvio during the night skiing.

La Pista Deborah Compagnoni

Created specially for the Alpine World Championships of 2005, the Deborah Compagnoni slope has held several races of the white circus, especially of women, with the exception of 2014 and 2015 when it was the protagonist for the men's downhill, replacing the usual stage in Bormio.

Technical details

The ski run is definitely one of the most fun and interesting in the alpine arc, and thanks to its exposure to the north, has the distinctive quality of always having very solid, hard, and long lasting snow!

With a length of 3.699 metres, the start, enters a narrow path between the rocks and then enters the woods until it arrives in town. The whole forested section includes some fun walls and some challenging sections. The final part, which is wider and descends directly into the village to reach the new gondola terminal, Santa Caterina - Plaghera - Vallalpe.

The run is equipped with a modern lighting system, so it can provide for excitement on the snow even during the night skiing.
