Homeland of Guides Bormio/Valtellina - Ivan Pegorari
This trip is also part of the "Homeland of Guides" campaign. Our longtime friend and mountain guide Ivan Pegorari knows the most beautiful spots in his valley. This week he will guide you to the most beautiful peaks and the interesting descents in his wonderful region...
...here we go!
From Bormio we have the choice to swarm out in every direction. Depending on the conditions, Ivan will guide you to one of his favorite spots in the next 6 days. Sometimes we go directly from Bormio with the cable car to the Cima Bianca. After a fresh snowfall the northern slopes offer perfet terrain. With an ascent of less than an hour we reach the Croce Peak at 3148 meters. Here we are spoiled for choice, both descends to the north or to the south are breathtaking. The next day we take the ski-bus to Santa Caterina. We reach the Giu della Seggiola right from the lift. After a hearty lunch with our friend Pepe in the Sunny Valley Resort, we climb Monte Sobretta in 45 minutes. After more than 2000 meters of downhill fun we reach San Antonio, Luigi´s bar is known for its delicious Cappuccino.
On days with snowfall we like to go to the nearby area of Isolaccia. In Bosco Bucciano we ski through gladed forests. On this day don't forget your bathing towel and a beer. After skiing we go straight to Pozza: hot spring water at 40 degrees bubbles into a small pool in a hidden place deep in the valley. Livigno can also be reached in 45 minutes. Runs like Cantone Basso or Madonne are waiting for us. At the end of the day we put our tracks into the the almost endless slopes to Campaccio. As you see you will certainly not get bored in the upper Valtellina.
We will be accomodated in the 4 star Hotel Baita dei Pini. It is located right in the center of Bormio and only a few hundred meters away from the bottom station Bormio 2000 and offers all you can ask for. The rich breakfast buffet will give you all the energy for a long day out. After the skiing the small and stylish furnitured wellness area waits to be discovered. The chef of the restaurant prepares all dishes with passion and fresh ingredients and in addition to international cuisine, you have the option to taste the hearty and delicious traditional local cuisine.
