Bormio

 The town of Bormio


View from the ski slopes at 2000 meters



A week of wintery fun in Bormio, a ski town in the Alps of Lombardia.

We skied
Wind whipping, deep breathing, heart lifting fun.
Chapped lips, numb noses, red cheeked fun.
Up to the clouds panorama at 3000 meters high (and also -22 C but no matter!).
Little boy learning, medal winning, ski school fun.

We indulged
Valltelina = strong cheeses, bresaola, porcini mushrooms, taranga, and pizzoccheri.

We cozied up at the Genzianella 
Homey. Great meals. Comfy rooms. Fireplace in the lounge. Cards and checkers. Family friendly vibe. Short walk to the gondola. 


We made friends.

A great week. 
A place to go back to.
