glad to share. I would recommend for planning purposes to go on a weekday and hope its less crowded. The east face is more popular but i thought the west side going into Bormio was more fun drive and less cars.

Thumbs up

I think the sound of the S65B40, at any speed, is the most intoxicating noise in the world.

THANK YOU for sharing.

Well, the video is only half of the pass actually. Its from bormio italy driving up the west face of the pass. I am working on the video of the more popular east face of stelvio which goes down towards vezzano.

In general I think this is the order of "fun" driving the pass.

1. Going up west face from Bormio
2. Going up east face from Vezzano (only when there is little traffic)
3. Going down west face towards Bormio
4. Going down east face towards Vezzano

What we did was stayed in Bormio at a ski chalet which also had its own nice twisty road. We drove from Garmisch Germany south and ended up on Umbrial pass eventually using Stelvio to get to Bormio. The next day we drove up Stelvio's west face, down the east face. turned around and went back to the hotel.

WOW.

What are the speed limits? Is there a lot of enforcement on those type of roads?
