Bormio is perfection for intermediate skiers, as the vast majority of the slopes are wide open and moderately pitched. It’s also a top-of-mind choice for someone who appreciates on-mountain dining. Of all the Alpine areas, Italy is Europe’s standout as a country who really knows how to enjoy their time basking in the sun, sipping wine and taking in the spectacular views. Italy enjoys this pastime so much that actually skiing can take second fiddle. Experts have several choice black pistes to enjoy, including the men’s downhill slope, which starts off incredibly steep and then transitions into a fun red piste.
Bormio’s slopes are generally snow sure, as the resort sits quite high (3,010 meters or 9,875 feet), the majority of the runs face northwest, and the ski resort boasts significant snow-making capabilities. Terrain park enthusiasts can enjoy themselves on the resort’s superpipe or slopestyle course. There’s also a separate, progressive beginner park ensuring novices learn in a safe manner.
