Cervinia

About

Welcome to Italy’s most snow sure resort. Situated at just over 2000 mt and a top lift of of just under 4000 mt it makes skiing into the resort a doddle all season. With a connected ski area to Zermatt and Valrournenche you have the very best of both worlds, Swiss efficiency and an Italian way of life. There is a wonderfully diverse ski area, offering something for everyone, long easy gradient  runs are perfect for beginners and intermediates while the more challenging ski area of Zermatt if just a lift or two away.. They have an epic run that is just over 20km and one to be tried during your stay as well as a fantastic snowpark called Indianpark that has been called one of the best in the Alps. As an overview, this resort is perfection for beginners and intermediates but with Zermatt on your doorstep, Cervinia is definitely a great all-rounder.

A word of warning.. keep your eyes on the time of the last lift back into Cervinia.. If you get stuck in Zermatt, its cheaper to but a hotel room for the night than take a 6 hr take back to the resort. The resort has a long season from November to May.

The fantastic wide gentle slopes that are brilliant for beginners and intermediates. This is the gateway to the perfect ski safari to experience the Acosta valley.

Watch Out For

It is not the prettiest resort as the buildings are slightly retro and for any bumps and expert skiers looking for a challenge, you will need to sat on Zermatt’s side.
