Overview

Breuil-Cervinia’s ski area has top notch skiing for beginner and intermediate skiers and surprising terrain for more experienced skiers too (if you know where to look). The resort, which is more commonly known as Cervinia, after Monte Cervinio, lies on the southern side of the Matterhorn on the other side of Zermatt. Together they share a lift pass covering 350km of pistes served by 59 lifts, and the highest marked ski area in Europe.

The views from the Italian side of the border are phenomenal which is not at all surprising considering that the resort is set in a jagged high-altitude basin in the middle of the Matterhorn and Piccolo Cervino (Klein Matterhorn). And when the weather’s good, the skiing’s fantastic – soft pow and all the fun which that entails, but bad weather conditions, low cloud and the like, have irritated many a visiting skier.  The good news is that these poor weather days tend to be rare.

The resort is family friendly and offers a whole host of non-ski related activities (as well as some pretty cool skiing activities). Choose from ice karting on a specially prepared ice circuit or air-boarding and snow-scootering on a kilometre long snow-covered run.

The car-free village centre is pretty , with characterful cobbled streets and stylish Italian boutiques, but it’s not quite a picture perfect chocolate-box image. Many of the buildings were constructed pre WW2 and the architecture reflects the sober style of the time, however, newer buildings are changing Cervinia’s image as a bit of a drab resort.  The Saint Hubertus Resort and Principe delle Nevi have added some glitz andcontemporary chic. Older buildings have also been made over, many of them being recladded in wood, to give the resort a warmer feeling.

A real bonus of the resort is that it’s completely wired. Often this is difficult in high-altitude resorts however Cervinia’s management  has installed fibre optic and wireless technology to provide useful data and information in real time.  More than 20 "Skiplan" boards offer access to information on the weather, the status of the lift systems, the ski runs and webcam pictures, precise and constantly updated information. It’s a useful service to ensure that every day is a safe day.
