Bormio dates back hundreds of years and it's quite possible that the Romans who built an ancient spa town near here could have actually been the first to shred the slopes in their tin hats.
However, Bormio as we know it today is rated very highly in Italy, with it's modern roots going back to the early sixties when the resort started dragging punters up its mainly intermediate all-round terrain. Bormio is a fairly busy place, with an overkill in some very sad all in one ski suits. The ski world does a lot of racing on the slopes here; Bormio hosted the 2005 World Championships which suggests that there must be something on offer.
Italian skiers like this place a lot, as do Germans and quite a lot of Brits. This means the slopes do become very clogged up at weekends and over holiday periods. Lift passes also provide access to the resorts of Santa Caterina (40km pistes) and San Colombano (30km pistes) creating the Alta Valtellina ski area, but the areas are only linked via ski-buses.READ NEXT: Freeriding, terrain parks and Pistes
