  • WHITE CHRISTMAS IN BORMIO

    19 - 26 December, 2015

    The northern Italian Alps have been providing an ideal winter get-away for decades, and have traditionally been known as being less expensive than their neigbouring resorts in Switzerland and Austria. We have selected the resort of Bormio because of it's proximity to the ski slopes and the excellent facilities that our hotel has provides. Located in the Alta Valtellina, Bormio is a medieval town, and it's thermal waters are well-known for their curative powers.

    The Hotel:

    We have selected the 4-star hotel Baita dei Pini, built in traditional alpine-style, and located only a few steps from the Sky Express which takes you to the ski slopes in 3 minutes. Rooms are comfortable and all have private facilities. SOme have a balcony offering a spectaular view of the surrounding mountains and town.

    The Skiing:

    Bormio's 1792 meter vertical drop is one of three biggest in Italy what makes the resort more attractive to skiers preferring long runs from the top of the mountain back down to the resort. The longest run is almost 14 kilometers long and you will find many more of similar lenght. The routes are artificially snowed so that the skiing conditions are guaranteed at the top level. Large vertical drop should not threaten beginners as the runs are rather gentle. Advanced skiers will have a bit limited choice but still should be satisfied with off-piste skiing. The 1995 World Championships in downhill were held in Bormio.
