Alpine skiing

Skiing, snowboarding and freeriding: all the thrills, on and off-piste

 

With breathtaking landscapes and unsurpassed skiing, Valtellina packs a punch when it comes to the winter season.

Alpine skiing with over 400 km of runs is only half the story! Snowboarders can find their freestyle thrills at the snowparks here in Valtellina – hit up one of the many designated sites, with well-prepared features for all levels. Expect to get airtime on the ramps, use the rails, box features and kicker lines to gain skills, and get your adrenaline pumping on the halfpipes.

Freeriders won’t go home disappointed either: from Bormio to Livigno, Valmalenco to Madesimo, where you’ll find the legendary Canalone (one of the hottest freeride routes in the Alps), powder-chasers should get set for an epic time in Valtellina. Make sure you consult the avalanche bulletin and equip yourself with an ARTVA (avalanche transceiver), backpack, shovel and probe. Going out with a qualified mountain guide or ski instructor is strongly advised.
