Bormio is a ski and spa resort in the heart of the Alps (Alta Valtellina) and the best holiday destination for people looking for an active but yet very relaxing holiday.
Bormio means 365 days of sport! You can go skiing in winter
(on more than 70 km of ski runs and cross-country skiing trails) but you can also practice summer skiing
on the Stelvio glacier! The most famous slope of the entire Bormio ski area is “Stelvio”. In 1985 and 2005 it hosted the FIS World Ski Championships and usually hosts the FIS Men’s DH race on December. The ski area offers a Snow Park for snowboarders, Gormiti Park for children and several ski schools. Discover the Bormio ski area with our special offers Skipass Free
and Bormio Ski Special
The ski lifts are open in the summer so that bikers can reach the single trails in the area. Are you a cyclist? You can’t miss the opportunity to discover the roads to the Stelvio, Gavia, Mortirolo and Aprica alpine passes. They are steep climbs, but getting to the top is a huge adrenaline rush! Don't miss the great bike events of Summer 2013 and the special offers Bike No Frills, Bike and Wellness and Bike and Family!
Bormio is also the right place to go hiking
in the mountains of the Stelvio National Park
or experience how beautiful walking in the woods can be.

The ancient traditions of Bormio are usually handed down from generation to generation, and people from Bormio and tourists too still celebrate them with excitement.
” is probably the most important local tradition. People celebrate it every year on Easter Day
with a religious parade and floats. Each float represents one of the five districts of Bormio (Dossorovina, Combo, Buglio, Maggiore, and Dossiglio.) At the end of the parade a winner is announced. Another particularly strong tradition in Bormio is the Carneval di Matt
. On Carnival people elect the “Podestà di Matt” (mayor of mad people) who replaces (in a joking way of course!) the town's mayor for a day and reads the complaints and questions of the citizens.
Winters can be particularly long and harsh in the mountain. That’s why spring is a celebrated event! The two main traditions in Bormio are Geneiron
(on January 31) and L'è fora l'Ors dala Tana! (on February 2.) On Geneiron children run along the streets of the town with tins and cans to wake spring up while on L'è fora l'Ors dala Tana! (it literally means "the bear is out of the den") people attract their “victims” outside their houses and fool them around.
