The Italian ski area Alta Valtellina is part of the Lombardia region and the large Alpine region of Valtellina. A significant part of the territory is occupied by the picturesque Stelvio National Park. This area brings together five small but popular ski resorts, namely Santa Katarina, Bormio, Valdidentro, Livigno, and Stelvio. These resorts are united by a single ski pass (ski passes), as well as a free ski bus.
Santa Katerina is located in the national park with a small resort. Its main advantage is that the main ski area is a gentle slope of the mountain range, offering excellent opportunities for freeriding. Bormio is popular for a solid elevation of 1,800 meters. Middle-level riders come here, for whom there are many “red” tracks. Not far from Bormio is a quiet and peaceful Valdidentro, famous for its long trails through a picturesque forest. In addition, this resort is known for its thermal springs. The busiest of the resorts in the region is Livigno with 70 kilometers of slopes and 30 lifts. Poti all tracks lie above 2,000 meters.
