Valdidentro, with its ski lifts on Mount Masucco, is connected to the ski area of Valdisotto, forming the San Colombano ski complex, dominated by the glaciers of Cima Piazzi. This area belongs to the biggest complex in the Upper Valtellina area, one of the most famous in Italy with famous skiing resorts such as Santa Caterina Valfurva, Bormio and Livigno.

The Valdidentro ski area welcomes lovers of downhill skiing, telemark skiing and snowboarding, with slopes of all degrees of difficulty , perfect for those seeking the thrill of the black run as well as those wishing to relax on wide and easy runs, enjoying the sun and fresh air .

But the true star discipline of Valdidentro is cross country skiing: its Purple run is well-known by enthusiasts and unrolls on a splendid scenic itinerary beside the Fulda River. It is twenty five kilometres long, easily coverable, with slight inclines and the possibility to choose the distance according to one's abilities thanks to cleverly marked deviations. Also famous is the competition run, adapted to national and international competitions, which is regarded as one of the best in Italy.

Valdidentro is also the ideal destination for those seeking direct contact with nature, through walks in the snow and the chance to experience the thrill of an unforgettable ride on a dog sled.

Located in the Valdidentro territory, the famous Bormio Baths have been known since the pre Roman era for the therapeutic properties of their thermal waters which spring from the living rock at a constant temperature of over 40°C. Illustrious figures of old times, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Ludovico il Moro, or the French nobility who use to come to the Baths regularly contributed to the establishment of their fame. The true gem of the complex is the Natural Steam Cave, a natural sauna built in the rock for over fifty metres, with temperatures and humidity levels that increase as you get closer to the spring.
