Lifts' early opening

Bormio, October 13, 2012. The early opening of the lifts has become a serious tradition for the BormioSki men. Looking forward to some heavenly autumn snowing, our expert snowmakers are trying to get everything ready in order to guarantee the snow cover of the ski area as soon as possible.

Snow cannons on the Stella Alpina slope.

The snow making system is going to get operational as the temperature will go below zero. The working cannons will be the ones situated at the top of the ski area; from Cima Bianca which is at 3012 meters to Bormio 2000. The first lifts that will open are the cablecar Bormio 2000-3000 and the chairlift Valbella-3000. The training camps in Bormio 2000 and the chairlift Pian dei Larici will follow the opening depending on the snow chances.
If you are owning a Bormio season pass then you have the possibility to ski one more month than on the other ski resorts of the Alps. The ski area of Bormio has this great quality that enables us to try to advance the opening thanks to the high altitude and the freezing temperature and the execellence of the snow making system.
If instead you are owning any other type of season pass (4 valleys, Alta Valtellina, Lombardia) the price of your ski pass in November is discounted with a good 20 % off.
The early opening gives you the opportunity to ski at very low prices justified by the uncomplete opening of the ski area (from 3012 meters to 2550 m or 1950 m) which is still a nice preview of what it's going to be like. Following all the details:

November early opening. The dates may vary.

The official opening of the winter season is December 1, 2012.
