Bormio is an ancient spa town that nestles in the mountains of Northern Italy and is full of rustic charm. The mountain has almost 50km of piste but your pass also covers the nearby ski resorts of Santa Caterina and Valdidentro. Both are linked by a ski bus. The main hill at Bormio has a good mix of open runs at the top and tree lined pistes towards the base. The slopes at Bormio are aimed at intermediate level but there are some beginner runs too.
JR Skiracing chooses Bormio as SnowSport England holds the annual English Alpine Championships there and we feel it is important to support our Home Nation event and to test our athletes against the rest of the British field.
Bormio lies in the northeast of the Lombardy region at the top of the Valtellina, and is a regular stop on the World Cup circuit, where they host a men’s downhill in late December. The Pista Stelvio, named after Stelvio Pass, is one of the most challenging downhill courses in the world. It is second-longest course on the World Cup circuit, behind only the Lauberhorn in Wengen, Switzerland.
