The Cretaz lifts serve a wide area of sunny nursery slopes leading down to the resort centre. Additional easy runs are plentiful at Plan Maison. Under the tuition of the fun and friendly Italians at the fantastic Breuil ski school, beginners make fast progress and are soon moving up to the higher long, wide, undulating runs from Plateau Rosa and snapping the Matterhorn on their way down.
Cervinia is an ideal choice for the intermediate skier - long sweeping runs with an occasional mogul field to add extra interest. Not to be missed is the Ventina, an 8 km run from Plateau Rosà. Choose a sunny day for a ski away day to Zermatt where a selection of runs and lifts link the two countries and their ski areas.
With no less than 7 marked black runs there is plenty to satisfy the better skier in Cervinia. The long run back to Plan Torrette is not for the faint hearted nor is the Bardoney mogul run. On the Swiss side there is plenty of challenge including some very steep runs under the Furi cable car.
The Theodul Glacier, located on the Klein Matterhorn in between Cervinia and Zermatt, is known to have some of the best snow in the region on its 23km of its runs, which are predominantly blue and red. Some of the pistes run back to Cervinia itself and you'll even find the highest terrain park in Europe on the Plateau Rosa, the Gravity Park.
Rack up your mileage with a Ski Away-day to Pila. Just a 1 hour bus ride away from Cervinia, you’ll be able to weave through long tree-lined runs, race down well-maintained piste and admire the panoramic views over 4 of the highest peaks in the Alps, all in one day. With your Valle d’Aosta lift pass, you get 1 free day to let loose on the fabulous terrain. This Ski Away day is not available on the Cervinia/Zermatt lift pass. The bus will drop you off in Aosta city, where customers will then catch the ‘Pila Ski in the Sky’ gondola up the mountain. If there are non-skiers in your group, they can also take advantage of this excursion to explore the city of Aosta instead. Speak to your rep for more details.
You'll be glad to know that, in Cervinia, most runs can be reached without using any draglifts. The resort is great for beginner and intemediate boarders, with lots of wide piste, and experts can let loose on the incredible terrain park, the IndianPark. You have to wear a helmet to get into the park - which is said to be the longest in Italy - which has lots of features for all abilities. For the little ones, there's a small park near the village which has obstacles more suited to them.
