Discover the fantastic freeride zones of Bormio: “Vallone”(1) and “Posto degli Sciatori” (2)!
THE ITINERARIES IN “VALLONE”
Vallone (big valley)
The classic off-piste itinerary of Bormio. Great satisfaction.
Reach Bormio 3000 by cablecar and pass below the station entering the hill side. No mandatory itinerary to ski down. After the first half don’t go too far left due to the presence of rock barriers. Reach the avalanche barrier before the plateau. Gather speed from here and go to the right, look out for the little road which will take you to the ski slopes with a five minute walk.
Do not enter the summit avalanche barrier: very dangerous area!
Get out of the cablecar and pass below the station. Follow the western ridge which takes you to the Vallecetta summit. From the peak enter the couloir which faces North-East and join the Vallone’s classic.
THE ITINERARIES IN “POSTO DEGLI SCIATORI” (the skiers’ spot)
Posto degli sciatori (The skiers’ spot)
Fun and fascinating descent in a magical environment.
Enter the off-piste to the right side of the slope S. Ambrogio by the flat section. No forced itinerary between changes of gradients and a fun wood. Continue until you intersect the “strada dell’acqua” (the road of water, it’s a narrow mountain road). Follow it to the left for roughly 20 minutes till you reach the ski slope at 2000 m.
Attention, itinerary for experts only. Avalanche danger. We suggest you to enter with mountain guides only.
At the end of the ski slope Ferrari, reach the flat section and enter the off-piste to the right side. You will see some aerials above you. No forced itinerary, proceed until you intersect the “strada dell’acqua”.
Attention! The freeride areas are to be considered off-slope. Enter them at your own risk.
