About The Resort
Located at the end of the Aosta Valley and on the Italian side of the Matterhorn, the high-altitude ski resort of Cervinia not only guarantees fantastic snow coverage but also gives access over the border to Zermatt. Cervinia has awesome Italian food & drink plus ideal terrain for beginner, intermediate & freeride powder-seeking skiers & snowboarders.
The sunny slopes above Cervinia are perfect for intermediate skiers. You can notch up some serious vertical – the 22km route from the Klein Matterhorn to the village of Valtournenche has a drop of more than 2300m – all on well-groomed pistes that are now increasingly equipped with snowmaking to improve snow reliability even further.
Before Cervinia was developed as a ski resort, the village was a base for mountaineering types & it was known as Breuil. It’s officially now known as Breuil-Cervinia, but most people just refer to it as Cervinia. The resort includes Valtournenche & lift, trail & pass interlinked with Zermatt in Switzerland to form one of the largest international ski resorts in the world called the Matterhorn Ski Paradise (behind the monstrous Portes du Soleil).
