Getting back to Cervinia from Zermatt if the lifts close?

I read somewhere that there isnt a direct road from Zermatt to Cervinia. Is this the case?

Other than finding a hotel in Zermatt for the night, are there other options for getting back to Cervinia if the lifts have closed?

No, there aren't. Travel by road is 140 miles and 4 to 5 hours, travel by public transport is further and longer.

Ahh! I guess we have to be extra vigilent in checking the time & hoping lifts dont close due to wind!

Thanks.

I believe you could get back by a helicopter, but that's obviously not a cheap option :).
