1. Snowboarding, cross-country and telemark skiing
The ski area, which lies between the peaks of the Ortles Cevedale group and the Forni glacier, is perfect for skiing: all you have to do here is choose among 35 kilometres of pistes where you can enjoy downhill skiing, 15 kilometres for Nordic skiing and then ski mountaineering. The place also lends itself to other snow disciplines such as telemark, snowboarding or cross-country skiing. For cross-country skiing, there are two loops that go into the woods for kilometres, at various levels of difficulty. Then there is an ice skating rink, suitable for all ages.
Santa Caterina Valfurva is the also the right destination for children thanks to the presence of a modern school field, equipped with a conveyor belt. Finally, fans of fat e-bike, the road bike with wheels wider than standard, will have at their disposal numerous routes to get around in nature or on dirt roads.
2. One ski pass for three ski areas
A single ski pass in these parts allows one to travel to three ski resorts next to each other: Santa Caterina, Oga San Colombano and Bormio. They are connected by a free ski bus at night too. Snow is guaranteed from the end of November to May, natural or planned.
