Pre-sale season pass Bormio 2016/2017

Snow at the end of May and we are not joking. This is what incredibly happened just a few days ago here in Bormio when two snowfalls hit our mountain resort from 1,600 meters. This kind of event threw us back to last winter’s memories and got us excited about the next winter season 2016/2017.

Let’s then discover what is going to look like the pre-sale of the season pass Bormio 2016/2017.

The prices, published by AIAFAV (Associazione Impianti a Fune Alta Valtellina) have remained the same and so have the discounts on the ski pass.

The season pass BORMIO SKIPASS allows you to ski in Santa Caterina, Bormio and San Colombano and to move from one mountain to another with the skibus, fast and free.

Bormio Ski closed. Now it’s time for Bormio Bike

Bormio Ski officially closed yesterday, on Sunday April 10, 2016 after 128 ski days.

The winter season started in the worst way possible when, due to a lack of snow, we were forced to a one week postponement (from November 28 to December 5). The difficult start was just the forerunner of a whole more complicated winter during which we had very few snowfalls.

Only eight snowfalls in this season and just one really abundant: the one on March 6 when 80 cm of fresh snow fell in Bormio 3000. Data seems even more discouraging if we compare it with the season 2013/2014 when the snowfalls were seventeen.

Despite the bad weather conditions, the commitment of our staff has been constant throughout the whole winter: snowmakers, snowgroomers and slopes staff have given their best to make you ski in perfect snowy slopes.

The next winter season will begin on December 3, 2016 and finish on April 25, 2017 for a total of 144 ski days.

APRIL 5, 2016 – BORMIO

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.

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.
