Ski area Santa Caterina

Ski area Santa Caterina

The lift pass "4 Valli" is valid in the ski areas Cima Piazzi-San Colombano and Bormio, as well as in Santa Caterina – which opens up 110 kilometres of piste and 36 lifts to you. Alongside the sheer altitude of the ski area (1,225 – 3,012 m), there are snow cannons here to ensure high levels of snow. Santa Caterina, which was the venue for the ski world championship in 1985 and 2005, offers 35 km of piste with mostly intermediate runs (27 km). The 9 lifts, among them 2 modern 8-person gondolas, easily take you into the ski area.

The greatest challenge surely is the 2 km long black run from "Adler" covering 600 m altitude difference. In addition, the black piste named after the world champion "Deborah Compagnoni" is reserved for pros. The longest descent in Santa Caterina measures a proud 3.6 km and presents a drop in altitude of 1,000 m.

Boarders can let loose at the snow park and the free-ride area in Bormio. The pistes in Cima Piazzi-San Colombanoare, on the other hand, easier and perfect for trips with the family.

Après ski Santa Caterina

The small village of Santa Caterina is calmer than its famous neighbour Bormio. All the same, "après ski" is not a foreign word! Various traditional huts and cosy cafés and restaurants entice with regional and national specialities. The cosy sun terrace in the ski area is an inviting place to stop for a drink after the last descent. Guests can meet up later in the local disco to party. Additionally, neighbouring resorts Bormio and Livigno offer enough selection to provide an exciting night life.

Alternatively, there is also the possibility to participate in ice skating, tennis, or indoor climbing. The culturally aware can visit a museum or spend the evening at the cinema. Nature fans can visit the huge Stilfser National Park, where they can enjoy the varied flora and fauna.

Snowpark: Santa Caterina

Santa Caterina is known to be the perfect place for pros, especially as it has been host to the Ski World Championship. But does that also count for freestylers? It does, for both beginners and pros. The "Snowpark Bormio", located in the homonymous ski area, has something for everyone with its three different lines. The easy line, with 2, 3 and 5 m long fun boxes and a 1 m kicker, is perfect for newbies to get going. First tricks and jumps can be practised here perfectly. The medium and rails line is better for the more advances riders or even the experts on this terrain. Various obstacles, beginning with a step-up, via a 3 m bonk ball and a 9 m box can be combined with 2 kickers with 5 and 10 m tables, and really can get you flying high.

A park-own shaping team is on the go daily to maintain the standard of the obstacles and is the heart and soul of the creative set-up. Sounds good? Yes, we think so, too.
