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.

Cervinia is an excellent ski resort with the added attraction of skiing to Zermatt.

Plan Maison is a good base, better than in the town as the snow isn't slushy. Good bars across the pistes, good long runs, not crowded, good proximity to Milan and Turin, reasonably priced. overall excellent.

because of warm weather Cervinia was the best option to go skiing. High altitude skiing and even than the snow was hard in the morning and soft in the afternoon. Good chairlifts with the exeption of the chairlift back to Valtournenche. Skirental is expensive and it was quite busy on the slopes on a sunday in mid april. Parkinhg however is a nightmare, chaos and no spaces so we decided to drive back to Valtournenche and started our skitrip to Cervinia from there. Very good solution, nice slopes and good connection.

Skied here 3 days with my 11 year old son from march 24-26. The conditions were perfect, although it snowed the entire first day of skiing. On the other hand.. back in the US east coast , it was 70 degrees !! Valtournenche seemed to have the least expensive places to stay.. although every thing basically closed down after 8 pm in Valt.
My son loved the slopes around Cervinia, including the ski park with the rails. We both tried the ski tube off the huge jump..landing in an air -bag. Crazy !!
Tons of snow, and good prices relative to US east coast. WE LOVED IT !! Skied for hours with no lift lines..ahhhhh

It's OK for the beginners and intermediate skiers. No real expert runs except some off-piste. Good for late springtime. One can ski in Zermatt, but you have to plan your time to get to and from Zermatt in time
