Everyone to the slopes in Valtellina!

More than 400 kilometres of snow-covered slopes await you for skiing in Valtellina, one of Italy's most beautiful valleys.

 

The 2021/2022 winter ski season is now open almost everywhere, from Aprica to Bormio, from Livigno to Teglio, from Santa Caterina di Valfurva to Madesimo in Valchiavenna, to Chiesa in Valmalenco and Val Gerola, daring descents and snowparks are ready to welcome the avid alpine skiers, snowboarders, freestylers and off-piste freeriders among you.

Cross-country skiing pistes in the forest and snowshoeing and walking trails await those who prefer to enjoy the spectacle of Alpine nature at a more leisurely pace. Fully equipped babyparks, complete with ski schools and instructors, await the little ones.

And if adventure and extreme sports is more your thing, then in Valtellina you can try dog sledding, wild husky sleigh rides, or snowkiting, an adrenalin-filled hybrid sport between snowboarding and kite surfing.

Come and discover the most original destinations with us to kick off the winter season on the slopes of Valtellina!

 

In Bormio, for the FIS Ski World Cup 2021
Not to be missed! Two spectacular races of the 2021 Alpine Ski World Cup on the legendary Stelvio slope in Bormio: the Men's Downhill and Super G on 28 and 29 December.

But Bormio also means all-round skiing, including freeriding and snowboarding. There are two famous off-piste areas: Vallone and The Skiers’ Spot. At Bormio 2000 there is a 500 m snowpark, with an altitude difference of 200 m.

Thrills galore snowboarding in the Valtellina
One of the favourite destinations for snowboarders is Valmalenco, where the World Cup competitions are held at Palù Park. Here you will find an 11-metre jump, a 9-metre funbox (Park 1) and a rail line ending in a 7-metre funbox (Park 2).

In Pescegallo, Val Gerola, in the heart of the Orobie mountains, there is the famous Snowboard Valley, a real natural park for surfers, where you can challenge gravity along 12 km of slopes and descents, among gullies and obstacles created by the rocks.

Granfondo at the Sgambeda in Livigno 
Cross-country skiing rules supreme in Livigno, where on 4 December there is the famous granfondo Sgambeda, a race included in the Visma Ski Classics circuit (the map) reserved for the strongest cross-country skiers in the world. For the amateurs there is the Minisgambeda instead.

Snowshoeing: tackling the mountain at a slow pace in Valtellina
The entire Valtellina valley offers breath-taking trails for an unforgettable walk with snowshoes, immersed in nature. Snowshoes and ski poles can be hired on site.

On the snow with the whole family: Alpe di Teglio and Valdidentro
With 10 kilometres of easy and medium slopes, 3 lifts, a school camp and plenty of sunshine, Alpe di Teglio is ideal for the whole family. And Prato Valentino is perfect for children.

Guaranteed fun for the children also in Valdidentro. In the Cima Piazzi ski area, there is a family bobsleigh, the only one on rails in Lombardy!

Off-piste freeriding in Madesimo
The Canalone di Madesimo is one of the most evocative off-pistes in the Alps and the most famous in the Madesimo area in Valchiavenna for riding the waves of fresh snow. Always make sure you are accompanied by an expert guide and equip yourself with a transceiver, probe and shovel.

Night skiing at Aprica
What could be more exciting than skiing down a snowy slope in the moonlight? The Valtellina offers a rich calendar for those who love skiing under the stars. And from 7 December, every Thursday and Saturday, the 5.5 km of the brand new Superpanoramica del Baradello, the longest illuminated slope in Europe, awaits you in Aprica!

Yet another emotion: dog sledding and snowkiting in Valtellina 
Dog sledding is the latest trend in winter sports. The most famous place to try it is Arnoga, between Bormio and Livigno. Here, the Husky Village offers winter excursions on dog sleds along a 5 km route in beautiful Valdidentro.

Dedicated to those who love emotions that take the breath away, snowkiting is available on the snowy peaks of Valle Spluga, where you can “surf the snow” pulled by large wind-filled kites, immersed in the silence of the valley.
