Bormio is home to worldwide sporting events, but not only that. Discover here all the traditions and experiences of our territory 

Bormio Events is a combination that has become inseparable for decades: not only great events of national and global scale but also traditions that are handed down from generation to generation or small events that make tourists fall in love with this territory.



La Magnifica Terra is an area rich in resources: nestled in the mountains of the Stelvio National Park, it offers outdoor sports activities for 12 months a year, and its warm thermal waters have been, since ancient times, one of the main attractions.


The ability to organise important sporting events, such as the World Cup and the Alpine Ski World Championships, the Short Track World Championships or the Granfondo Stelvio Santini, together with the uncontainable desire to cultivate the traditions of the past, make the events’ calendar of this location a flagship, capable of giving visibility all over the world and attracting fans even from overseas.

Bormio and Santa Caterina Valfurva are known in the world of winter sports for major events related to alpine skiing.

FIS WOLRD CUP – Every year, on 28 and 29 December, the spotlights of the Fis World Cup turn on the legendary Pista Stelvio for one of the most feared but also the most coveted free descents of the World Cup circuit: the best men-jets usually compete right before the end of the year.

Bormio and Santa Caterina were also home to the Alpine Ski World Championships in 1985 and 2005, and the Pista Stelvio will host the Milan-Cortina Olympic Games in 2026.

The events related to the snow, however, do not end here:
