Attention, please: winter opening postponed to December 5
NOVEMBER 10, 2015 – BORMIO
The countdown looking forward to the official opening of Bormio Ski has started. The winter season will start on November 28, 2015. We will start right away with a long-established event, the Df Snow Village, powered by our partner Df Sport Specialist, offering a special weekend to all snowboarders.
PREPARATIONS – Within the last few weeks we have worked very hard to get everything ready for the opening. The first snowfall – on October 16 – brought over 70 cm of fresh snow at the top and our groomers immediately got into action to compact the snow blanket. Also, our snow making system has already been activated with its 300 snow points. Now we are only looking forward to the drop of temperature in order to “bomb” the ski area at first opportunity.
EVENTS – Bormio Ski will confirm is successful image hosting and organizing several popular events. Among the whole list, we’d like to mention the endless ski run Peak to Creek (January 23), the alpine ski races of the Special Olympics (January 24-29), the most colorful night of the year We Glow (February 6-7), the English Alpine Champs (Febrary 13-19) and the slalom of the Alpiniadi Invernali (February 25-28).
The ski area will be the location of many prestigious villages on the snow, too, mostly located in Bormio 2000, with the goal of ski testing and exhibitions.
OFFERS – The season 2015/2016 will be launched with a special price of the ski pass: the daily pass will only cost € 24 until December 18. The start of the season will propose another unmissable offer like Skipass Free for which the ski pass will be free if you will buy a 4-night stay. Other promotional days will be the Christmas Special and the Snow Week. The card symbol of Bormio, Bormio Pass, will be propose again. It’s a card that entitles you to choose between skiing or diving into the hot thermal waters of QC Terme. We would like to remind you that from this year the ski pass will be sold on a district basis: the new BORMIO SKIPASS will be available within the ski areas of S. Caterina, Bormio and S. Colombano, too.
GREAT VERTICAL EXPERIENCE – Bormio Ski is the right choice if you love skiing. Choose us and you will try the great vertical experience: a 1,800-m nosedive, from Cima Bianca (3,012 m) to Bormio (1,225 m) on technical ski runs like the worldwide famous ski slope, the Stelvio. The offer of Bormio Ski is rich: we have extreme activities like freeride and freestyle at the snowkpark, extra-ski activities like paragliding, activities for everybody like night skiing and activities for the little ones like the Gormiti Park.
SKI & TECHNOLOGY – The technological evolution and alpine skiing are two worlds strictly connected. We have high technology in the lifts, in the snow making systems, in the groomers, in the alpine skiing materials etc.. Bormio Ski has always been looking for the latest technology to offer innovative services for its customers. The partnership with MYPASS, leader company in the access systems, took us to the development of custom-tailored services. With MYPASS you will avoid standing in line at the ticket office showing up directly to the gates and paying only for the time in which you have actually skied. Also, with MYPASS Baite (huts) you will be able to shop at the mountain huts using your ski pass as a payment tool and at special prices. The services of MYPASS, the information about the ski area and much more will be all available within the new app MyBormioSki, soon in the stores Apple and Android.
