Early and late skiers

As one of the highest resorts to crown the alps, an impressive snow record and fabulous skiing spanning two seasons are what define Cervinia.

Compact and traffic-free, the centre sits at more than 2,000m; all remote and rugged with a relaxed après-ski vibe (and the highest museum in Europe). It’s small size doesn’t hinder its impact though, with off-the-slope activities span snowmobiling and dog sledding to fat biking and paragliding.

Adventuring further afield isn’t off the cards though; non-skiers can hop on the Matterhorn Alpine Crossing cable car to reach the iconic town of Zermatt. Days here are packed with horse drawn sleigh rides through the snow-dusted cobbled centre and browsing the fabulous designer boutiques, before lunching in one of the alpine-chic restaurants. Returning to Cervinia via a sparkling Glacier Palace rounds off the day, where up at almost 4,000m, illuminated natural ice formations lie below the surface.

The skiing

High altitude Cervinia boasts impressive scenery with fine views from the miles of wide, well-groomed slopes but the 2023 opening of the Matterhorn Alpine Crossing is a game changer. A now fast and easy cable car link between Cervinia and Zermatt allows skiers to take full advantage of the shared 360km of pistes. Relax into endless snow-sure pistes, ideal for cruising beneath crisp blue skies late into the season with a ski high point of 3,899m. Amongst some of Italy’s highest ski slopes, experts will find good off-piste opportunities and a superb terrain park with the option to head over to Zermatt for exhilarating on-piste challenges. Beginners will enjoy the excellent village nursery slope which graduates to fine blue runs around Plan Maison, while sweeping intermediate runs extend towards Valtournenche culminating in a spectacular 13km run.
