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.

I'm not such of a 'ski traveler' but the slopes in Cervinia are definitely among the best in Europe. Very diversified, in 5 days of ski I wasn't able to try 'em all.

Great for intermediate skiers. A vast area covering Cervinia, Valtournenche and Zermatt in Switzerland. You can ski on the glacier in The Matterhorn glacier paradise, though expensive compared to Italy so stay in Cervinia.

Good uplift and quiet slopes around January.
Very cold and can be prone to high winds closing top lifts - be careful if you are on a day away to Zermatt

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!
