Skiers who are spending their Christmas holidays in Bormio are going to have some great time: warm weather and marvellous sunny days are coming. The snow conditions on the ski runs are pretty nice despite a stingy snow report: the last snowfall dates back to November 11, 2016.
The ski area of Bormio, well-known for its astonishing difference in height (1,800 meters from Bormio 3000 to Bormio), will be offering a shorter vertical drop of 1,374 meters. During Christmas holidays you will be skiing from Cima Bianca (3,012 m) to Ciuk (1,638 m).
Our next goal is the full opening of the Stelvio (the valley run): dozens of snow guns are ready to fire on the slope.
