Italian hospitality and international skiing beneath the awesome Matterhorn
One of the highest resorts in the Italian Alps, Cervinia is dominated by the Matterhorn and surrounded by Europe’s grandest peaks.
Cervinia is becoming more and more popular because of its excellent snow conditions and long hours of sunshine. Most of the slopes are long, wide, cruisy runs – ideal for beginners and intermediates. But with an area pass the ski area opens up to Zermatt in Switzerland where you’ll get some very challenging skiing. The resort sits at the top of a long valley off the Aosta Valley and can be busier at the weekends with visitors from Turin and Milan, but otherwise the lifts rarely suffer from queues.
The resort centre is fairly modern, purpose-built, compact and traffic-free. It has a lively après ski scene with a good range of relaxing and lively bars. One of our favourites is Linos, by the ice rink, as well as having a great atmosphere it serves some of the best pizza in town.
Ski Information Beginners
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 and under the tuition of the Breuil ski school beginners make fast progress and are soon moving up to the higher long, wide, undulating runs from Plateau Rosà.
Ski Information Intermediates
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 8kms 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.
Ski Information Advanced
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.
Fantastic après ski and nightlife with plenty of cafés, lively bars and clubs. Try: • Grivola Bar • Yeti Bar • Dragon Bar • Copa Pan • Ymeletrob • Gasolene • Café des Guides for a relaxing atmosphere • Max's nightclub
