SNO-man says

Bormio has first rate sporting facilities as a result of its significant role in winter sports competition and history. They include an Olympic sized indoor ice rink where hockey matches are staged, and a large indoor multi-sports arena where football and basketball matches are played. Of course a visit to the thermal springs is highly recommended, they range in temperature from 37 to 43 degrees centigrade, and the 'sweating grotto' by the spring at St Martino is unique to the Alps in being a natural therapeutic sauna. Massage and hydro-massage are among the many additional facilities on offer. The library has a rather more interesting collection of books than those to be found in most ski resorts - they include a Latin bible dating back to 1498 and one in German dated 1527. Other documents dating back to the thirteenth century include details of the trials of witches. There are also several museums to visit including the Civic one, established in 1962, which has relics from battles fought in the area during the first world war along with other collections. Outdoor sports available include ice climbing or parascending. Back indoors there's a cinema, body building club, table tennis and climbing wall.

"Bormio" by any other name

The Italian resort is also known as Bormio Monte Vallecetta and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Bormio slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition. Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Bormio has slopes facing N NE NW.

Childcare in Bormio, Italy

Bormio day and evening care plus snow ski schools and babysitting.

In common with most Italian resorts, facilities for young children do not really exist - it is a case of someone in your own party taking care of the little ones or employing a baby sitter in the resort. The Bormio ski school operates a roped off snow garden for children, who may join classes from age three. Off the slopes the town does not have any special attractions for children, except the swimming pool of course.
