Backcountry skiing

 

Surfing on fresh snow in Valtellina is a fantastic emotion. Discover backcountry skiing together with our Alpine guides or our Ski instructors: they will help you planning your holiday in full safety. Do not miss the “Vallone” or the “Posto degli Sciatori” in Bormio: a funny and fascinating downhill surrounded by a magical environment. The most skilled skiers will go to the “Antenne”: entrance recommended only with expert guides.  In Livigno you can practice off-piste skiing and reach the slopes by helicopter. In Madesimo the best-known route is the “Canalone” that begins by the arrival station of the cablecar of the Val di Lei and ends at the mouth of the Alpe Groppera where it joins with the other ski slopes. The staff of the ski area will inform you about the possibility to practice backcountry skiing or not every day. The Valmalenco is one of riders’ favourite resort as it is surrounded by impressive mountains such as the Disgrazia, the Bernina e the Scalino: in few space you will find a great variety of environments and different kinds of snow. The fondest and most expert ones will combine the use of lifts with climbing skins: really #wonderful!
