Bormio is located at about 1225 m high, has 4100 residents and a particularly favorable climate. Bormio is a charming medieval Italian town.
This town dating back to the Middle Ages has cobblestone streets and old clock towers. One can walk about town, visiting churches and shops without the expense, and snobbish atmosphere that one normally finds in other Italian ski resorts. The skiing is mostly red-coded intermediate runs and there is not a very wide variety of those. There is a free bus that goes to the Val di Dentro-San Colombano area, to Santa Caterina, and even to Livigno. Located in Italy near both the Swiss and Austrian borders, Bormio is unlike most other Italian ski resorts.
