Owner description: 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.

“Great slopes for beginners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We have 2 children (7 & 9) who have only been skiing once. We had many choices for slope combinations and the slopes were well marked. We went in mid December and there were few people on the slopes. We stayed at Hotel Lac Bleu which is a short distance from the slopes and they shuttled us around to the slopes and ski rental shop. It was a very friendly area and perfect for a 2 day ski getaway. We'll go back!

“Great for easy skiing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

A great area for skiers who are more comfortable on blue and easy red runs. There is a good mix of reds and blues but nothing too taxing.The lifts are not the most modern but ok.
A big ski area with good powder snow but can get very windy. Easy to get over to Zermat for more adventurous runs. Great lunchtime food served at the Chalet Etoile on Plan Mason.
