The 'Pozza' 2013 is a big hit!


The winter season of Bormio has closed yesterday on April 14 with the day of  'fools' which brought a huge crowd to the ski area. La Pozza dei Mat proved itself again as a smash event. About 6000 people entered our gates and the area in Bormio 2000 was literally packed. The contributing factor of this great result was surely the weather: for the first time in this year we finally had sun and warm as in the best Spring days.

The contest of the pond which consists of  crossing a 30-meter long and 15-meter wide stretch of water was divided into four categories: Normal Grand, Normal Picen, Jump and Mat. 146 brave ones took part at the challenge.

The crowd followed with great excitement the contest which began with 23 Normal Picen (children with skis), then 26 Normal Grand (adults). The level of the show grew with the acrobatics at the jump and totally exploded with the wagons. We saw 22 construnctions trying to cross the pond.

And now let's take a look at the 2013 rankings:

The day continued with the concert in Bormio 2000 and with the party at the après ski bars in town. The skiing season 2012/2013 is over and the conclusion was a blast! The BormioSki staff would like to thank all of you who have chosen Bormio for your vacation. See you all next winter!

Next official winter opening 2013/2014: November 30, 2013.
