Ski from peak to creek in Bormio! The valley run is open.

In Bormio everything is ready to host the “all adrenaline” ski race Peak to Creek at the end of January. The clients of the ski area can finally ski from peak to creek, as we like to say when referring to the opening of the valley run and the possibility to ski, from top to bottom, the whole vertical drop of the mountain.

Since last Saturday people have been skiing on the slope Bosco Basso which made the “vertical fun” of Bormio finally for real. Skiing on a 1,800-meter vertical drop is pure poetry for every ski fan. Dancing on the snow from 3,012 meters to 1,225 meters is a unique experience that you don’t exactly find everywhere.

Torchlight parade and fireworks: it’s New Year’s Eve in Bormio!

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow from 5:30 pm at the Ski Stadium on Funivia Street for the great New Year’s Eve Party organized by Bormio Tourism. There will be plenty of music, hot tea and mulled wine to warm everyone’s heart.

Pozza dei Mat 2016: mad people for a great party!

APRIL 5, 2016 – BORMIO

On Sunday April 3 the tenth edition of Pozza dei Mat (Pond of Mads) took place in Bormio 2000. The ‘mad’ people were the absolute protagonist of the day showing some great performances at the pond contest.

Pozza dei Mat: the craziest party of the winter!

Over five thousand people reached Bormio 2000 to watch the pond show: a blend of carefreeness, enthusiasm and levity that totally set the whole Bormio Ski on fire for this final season party.

The participants, about one hundred, made some great acrobatics trying to cross the pond of freezing water, using style and creativity.

For the category ‘Challenge‘ we saw a few skiers attempting the pond crossing. Some made it nicely and some totally not For the category ‘Jump‘, instead, the mad people jumped directly into the pond from the kicker. The great finale, as always, was all for the category ‘Mat‘ (mad): some really alternative vehicles made a marvellous appearance. Everyone tried to pass the pool but a just a small few, to be honest, made a pass all the way across the pond. Some lost the pieces, some lost members of the crew but the result was always one: an hilarious and phenomenal show which captivated the attention of the crowd.

After the contest the day continued with a focus on music: a sensational live concert in Bormio 2000 and a dj set at the après skis Bewhite and 30m2.

Pozza dei Mat 2016: the pond of mads will be back on April 3

MARCH 18, 2016 – BORMIO

It is official now, Pozza dei Mat (Pond of Mads) will be back by popular demand on April 3, 2016 in Bormio 2000!

Pozza dei Mat (in English ‘Pond of Mads) is a great festival on the snow: every year, thousands of people gather in Bormio 2000 to watch an unusual contest, especially for the mountain. The participants equipped with skis, snowboard or on board of a weird vehicle run down a snowy hill as fast as they can with the goal of crossing a long stretch of water.

The result is an hilarious and phenomenal show. The video here below sums up really well the content of the day.  ⇓

Pond of Mads: the craziest party of the winter!

Crossing the pond in Bormio 2000 is not an easy thing to do, at all: the pool is filled with freezing water and 30-m long (10-m wide and 1.5-m deep). It’s a real swimming pool, then, installed for people who don’t mind an out-of-season bath at such an odd location.

The event Pozza dei Mat was born in 2006 as a carefree festival among friends and this year it will celebrate a great goal: the edition 2016 will, in fact, be the historic tenth.
