Gallery 2: Bormio

Bormio was a really nice city, surrounded by stunning mountains over 3 000m tall. I also had a day in the ski resort from

Bormio 3000 to Bormio 2000, which was open at that time. This gallery also includes images of mountains seen from the

mountain Cima Bianca, which is where the ski resort starts at 3 050m. Enjoy the images.

Gallery 3: Sweitzerland

On a cold thursday i went to Sweitzerland, with the train from Tirano to St. Moritz. Tirano was grey and rainy, while St. Moritz was snowy, but luckly not too snowy to take images. The train took us from Tirano which is situated 450m above the ocean to Ospizio, 2 350m above the ocean and down to St. Moritz, 1 780m above the ocean. This gallery contains only images from Sweitzerland.
