Bormio, in the Italian Alps, is among the world capitals of alpine skiing. The ski area has been annually hosting, since 1993, the Men’s Downhill World Cup on the Stelvio slope, one of the most spectacular courses of the whole white circuit. If you are a ski lover, the Stelvio must be added to your notebook as one of those ski run to do, at least once in a lifetime. Bormio and its World Cup track are also listed among the best Italian alpine resorts where to practise night skiing (dovesciare.it).
Night skiing in Bormio
Skiing during the night can be a very satisfying experience from a technical point of view since the run is newly groomed and from an emotional perspective since the view is so charming that it just makes you feel good.
Bormio may boast a 4 km floodlit slope. The course is actually on two different slopes of the ski area: a blue (easy) slope called Genziana and the already mentioned, the Stelvio.
The ski run is served by the main lift of the resort, the cableway Bormio-Bormio 2000. The night shift is from 8:00 to 11:00 pm.
The night ski pass may be purchased at the bottom station of the lift by the ticket office. The price is € 16 for the adult, € 14 for seniors (born in 1954 and older) and € 12 for juniors and baby (born in 2003 and younger). To the price you have to add and extra 5 Euro for the deposit.
