Over-rated and living on very stale laurels. From the idiotic wait times for the tunnels and car-train to get there, to the banal, patchy pistes, to the snotty attitude of the staff, to the awful policies on ticket prices, to the self-serving policies and the promotions of things that don't exist... Probably the worst ski experience ever. Take your money to resorts that put you first, not the owner.

Good, even of relatively small, skiing area, in particular slopes between 2000 and 3000 meters. Next to the ticket office is a friendly and efficient ski rental operation with quality gear and reasonable prices. Open until 1800.

Great skiing December to April which is a very long season. Beautiful Medieval town by the mountain with the ancient Roman Spas, so never boring after the skiing.

Also the prices are amazing in comparison to most of other ski places in Alps!

The venue is located above Bormio in the Italian Alps. It’s quite big and well-known because of the ski world cup races just before new year. They have quite some slopes but because the place is well-known it can become crowded. There are slopes for every skill level.

We chose Bormio for our family ski vacation because as my wife does not ski, we were looking for a place that is not a pure "ski station", but also has a nice village. In this, Bormio is great since it has a beautiful old town with many excellent restaurant options and great thermal baths. As for the skiing, i'm speaking in a bit of theory because unfortunately, we didn't have much snow (as was the case in the entire Alps in week 1 of 2017) and the runs, expertly prepared as they are, were extremely icy. If there *is* snow, the ski area must be awesome: huge, wide open carving runs, loads of freeriding terrain, the ability to "peak to creek it", i.e. hammering it down from 3000 to 1200m on a famous World Cup run, efficient lifts, great nature surrounding it and plenty of nice little mountain restaurants. I'm sure to be back to give Bormio another try when there's more snow.

Bormio ski area has two basic altitudes: 2000 m and 3000 m high. Ski areas are for intermediate skiers, but not for beginners, because blue ski slopes in some places are too steep. A red ski slopes are wide and there are various ways to come back to ,,base" at height of 2000 m, where are some kind of lifts and places to have meal or to rest also. All days there were a lot of people (maybe there was a holiday for school childrens?). The main red slope is wide and good. Using gondola we went to Bormio (3000 m) and the views from this place were amazing. There is a quite good restaurant on this 3000 m place.
With Bormio skipass it is available to ski in 3 areas, which are separated from each other, but there are ski buses (each way has it's own colour). For beginners the right place is Santa Caterina, only infrastructure for skiers is better in Bormio.
Bormio's old town is very nice and local people are kind and friendly.

Bormio is not a huge Ski Resort, by any means and lack on ski domain - only 50km of slopes - and on ski in - ski out hotels/very few.

On the other hand, Bormio has one of Europe's HIGEST VERTICAL DROPS (1800 meters), more vertical drop than any North American Ski Resort - including Whistler Blackcomb, but quite similar to Whistler as far skiing: two mountains facing one another, one with 50km of slopes the other with 35km.

Unlike other ski resorts with huge vertical drop, Bormio has a run Bormio 3000 to Bormio village, on the Stelvio slope, which is second to none. It will take your breath away. If you have issues with visibility - being that the mountain gets hit by the sun after 10:30/11:00 am, it will be best after noon.

The view from the top, half way down the mountain is super, the slopes are perfectly groomed and your challenge to make it all the way down without stopping is quite the goal.

Make sure you ski in the nearby Santa Caterina - 12 km away (with another 50km of slopes - a relatively new Gondola that swings you right to the top, but older lifts), for outstanding for Freeride.

You could also ski Livigno - 40km away - with 110km of slopes on two mountains, for easier, wider, more crowded slopes and a unique surrounding - coupled with superb duty free shopping (over 250 stores and top brands).

Lots of slopes for advanced skiers. Even if most are very wide I think it's not ideal for beginners. The majority is red. We like Bormio because it's less crowded and cheaper than Austrian resorts we were used to. The ski huts are very good with excellent food and drinks and usually nice music.
Our single issue is with the maintenance/availability of the slopes. It occurred to us repeatedly that the most important lifts on the upper half of the mountain did not open till late in the morning or did not open at all (on sunny days), making the lower slopes very crowded and bumpy.
I consider this as a bad service and I was considering to ask a refund on my ski pass (which is not cheap, especially if you can't access half of the slopes).

The Bormio ski area is easy to mid-intermediate if the weather is good and good-intermediate when icy. The runs are mostly marked as red but should be OK for all but the most timid beginners. The area is quite small if you're used to the large ski-circus resorts but the inclusion of Santa Catarina (20 minutes drive/bus) and Livigno (ca. 1 hour drive/bus) in the ski-pass provides wider opportunities.
Bormio 2000 at the top of the first gondola is always crowded but strangely, the lift queues are short. Bormio 3000 can be reached from here via cable car or via a fast chair, a short ski and a second fast chair. It was possible to ski down to the village at the end of March but the snow below 1500m is heavy and wet and unsuitable for beginners (or tired legs).
The mountain restaurants are average to good and have local dishes as well as italian classics.
