Ski Destinations in Italy: Bormio
Many people would agree that Bormio ranks among the most beautiful ski resorts worldwide.
The focus of Bormio's skiing is the network of red and blue runs leading north-west back to town from Cima Bianca (3,010m), and accessed by the new gondola going from town via Bormio 2000. The most famous of these - the Pista Stelvio - is closed off for yearly competitions, but when accessible forms a steep, long red with good views all over. A lot of the reds here are steeper than normal, and their upper exposure allows winds to whip them into icy trails closer to black runs.
Off the Slopes:
The old town is a clutter of cobbled streets and ancient squares; guided tours leave from the Piazza Cavour. A 3km journey by bus or taxi leads to the Bagni Vecchi, Roman and medieval baths open to the public and providing a huge range of on-site treatments.
