And so it comes September… And that means shorter days, lower temperatures and, believe it or not, the first snow on mountain peaks. All those are signs of summer giving up to throw us back into our shelters and sink into our big fat, comfy couches. But don’t let this quick change of season fool you. September is often and unexpectedly a marvellous month for the mountain with warm sunny days and spectacular colors.
To extend your desire of summer, sport and fresh air, there is nothing better than Bormio Bike. The bike park of Bormio will, in fact, be open on a few special days during this month because we just don’t wont to give up downhill mountain biking so soon. This weekend the new Zombie track will be inaugurated. It’s a fantastic 1,400-meter-long flow trail in the woods, with a vertical drop of 253 meters, totally built with bulldozers.
Bormio Bike’s next openings
Bormio Bike is waiting for you with 5 DH tracks for a total of 8 km stretched on a 1,000-meter-long vertical drop. Following, all the dates of next openings and details of the lifts open:
