Ski holidays in Cervinia

An Italian superstar, with 350km of fantastic skiing shared with Zermatt

Dominated by the mighty Matterhorn and surrounded by outstanding scenery, the compact village of Cervinia is one of the highest resorts in the Alps. The extensive ski area is served by an impressive lift system which connects Cervinia with Valtournenche as well as Zermatt in Switzerland. The skiing in Cervinia seems almost limitless - from Plateau Rosa you can reach the slopes of both Zermatt and Valtournenche. It may not quite have Zermatt’s glamour, but Cervinia ski resort has masses of great intermediate skiing and is one of the highest resorts in the Alps meaning an unusually long season. In the best of both worlds you can ski up and over the Swiss border, enjoy some of the skiing on the Zermatt side and return to Italy in time for a late (and much cheaper) lunch! The village offers a good selection of shops, bars, nightclubs, pizzerias and restaurants.

Beginners skiing in Cervinia

Start on the village nursery slopes using the baby lift then progress to the Cretaz lifts. After a few days you will be taken up to Plan Maison; lots of easy blues up there and blue 5 back to resort is long and easy.

Intermediates skiing in Cervinia

Intermediates will enjoy Cervinia's long and open sunny runs, many of which continue uninterrupted for miles. The run down from Plateau Rosa, 10 km in length, is exhilarating without being difficult. Stop off at one of the good mountain restaurants en route to admire the spectacular views. And don't miss the exciting 22 km descent from Plateau Rosa to Valtournenche.

Advanced skiing in Cervinia

Nothing too testing but the skiing over to Zermatt (International lift pass required) is more advanced. The selection of black runs provide some challenging descents.

Snowboarding in Cervinia

Snowboarders will find the wide open pistes ideal as most of the runs can be reached without using draglifts. There is one of the highest snow parks in Europe (2800m) with separate sections for beginners and more expert boarders.
