An infinite snowy area that begins at 1,524 metres, in Valtournenche, embraces Breuil-Cervinia, rises up to 3,480 metres of Plateau Rosà, touches the 4,000 m peak of Piccolo Cervino, climbes up to 4,478 m to the top of the Cervino. An area where the infinite snow continues on the Swiss side to Zermatt. An area where the snow is the setting of sport, holidays and fun. The tourism vocation of Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche had it’s beginning more than two hundred years ago. Excursionists and academics were the pioneers of a tourism that united sport, scientific study and intellectual exchange. In 1936, a new Breuil-Cervinia was created. The construction of the first cable car was a cutting-edge work of engineering excellence. The Hotel Gran Baita situated at the foot of the slopes, with the cable car departure station annexed to it, anticipates by over half a century the concept of an integral complex for skiing. Breuil-Cervinia became the Queen of the snow. From sport to cinema, politics and commerce, those who count meet here. Innovation, in Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche, is the key word. New ways to practice sport, new ways to enjoy a holiday, new services to allow more free time. The technology is not limited to the rapid lift systems, but also to the territorial fibre optic network that allows the information to be transmitted in real time. Time and space dimensions have changed thanks to the e-skipass, to the keycard and to the hotel reservation system via the internet. 350 thousands web navigators every month visiting the site to check out the webcams, weather reports, lift status and snow conditions. In Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche, collaboration between the operators in the area guarantees guests quality and state of the art solutions.

super skiing adjacent to the magnificent Matterhorn

Plenty of wide pistes to practice your carving. Relatively quiet and mainly skiers and fewer boarders

Lot's of snow because of the altitude. Enormous amount of prepared slopes. Connection to Zermatt. Some of the best red slopes I've ski'd in my entire life. Efficient lift system. Those looking for more challenging slopes may find Cervinia slightly disappointing, though. On the other hand, there are lots of off piste alternatives for the hardcore crowd. Village is small...

Skied her in February and had a mostly good time. Because of the altitude there are no trees so your'e easily "whited out" when it snows or visibility is poor. Made a mistake on our lift pass because we bought full area which covers Zermatt, however it's only cost effective if you ski there at least twice and the high... More

We were group of older skiiers staying at Club med in Cervinia. We all enjoyed these slopes .We had excellent weather and snow conditions but it appears that the area suffers form high winds on occasions that can close a substantial number of lifts. There are a couple of pommers and draglifts that are long and some skiers found them... More

Cervinia skiing area is extremely suitable for family skiing. The alopes are mostly blue/red and there are only few black slopes. The slopes on Zermatt side are more demanding. The area is large including connected Zermatt and Valtornance areas. The highest lift is at 3900 meters and Zermatt side features glacier skiing in summer. Get up early, as Cervinias gondola...

The mountains and views in Cervinia are beyond amazing! We had plenty of snow and sun during our week stay. The trails were similar, boring, and easy. We went off piste and that was extreme! Well it wasn't really off piste, just a closed trail. I'm not entirely sure why the trail was closed but a lot of people were... More
