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.

Cool place to be, I found Zermatt to be better but more expensive for food. The combination of the two is unique !

“Brilliant skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Vast area of easy intermediate skiing. All pistes are well groomed. We went in February half term and there were zero queues and empty runs. The weather was extremely cold but fine and sunny. Excellent!

“Top ski areas in Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Cervinia with access to Zermatt is o e of the top ski areas in Europe. Quite new village is not as beatifull as Zermatt, but the prices are half of those on the Swiss side.

The skiarea is excellent with some off-pistes and heliskiareas available. The slopes are best suited for average skiers, but such that good skiers enjoy cruising them.

The wind and visibility are problems in the high altitudes. Lifts might be closed due to wind and clouds might be blocking the visibility - check the weather on otherside (first day it was heavily cloudy and light snowfall in Cervinia - Zermatt had blue skies and great weather.

It is definate worth buying the Zermatt pass for whole stay, as Zermatt has great areas to explore and it does not cost that much more.

“skiers heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

great slopes, well prepared, stunning views on the Matterhorn, connected with Zermatt where slopes are equally great, though somewhat more difficult. What more do you need ?
