Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Fee: Yes
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.

“Top!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I ski for 24 years. Take a skipass combination with Zermatt too and you have the best the alps can offer you! From beginner slopes and children parks to snowboardparks, very long black/top level pists. 360 km of ski area in total from about 1500m to 3900 m altitude ( yes, skiing at 3900m!). Together with Les 3 Valées in France(Courchevel- Val Thorence)...these are my favorites.

“Excellent Ski Resort”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

In my opinion the best Ski Resort of the Alps.
In no other destination you can find such a panorama with the highest Mountains of Europe, with 38 4000-meters mountains to visit, to see, to ski on.
Excellent food, less expensive than neighbor Zermatt and with the same ski AREA.
Also easier to reach as only few hours from Milan airport.

“Autostrada skiing”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Wide, easy rolling runs from Plateau Rosa to Cervinia. It's a nice running after the first espresso to zip down from Klein Matterhorn non stop for an easy 16 km. The view is spectacular as the Matterhorn shows it dark southerly face. The runs however in season appear like pathway of crawling ants, loud, noisy and colorful. Ordinary mass tourism, not to be associated with high quality skiing, though some nice truely freeride terrain can be found (e.g. from Furgsattel soutface directly to the runs towards Plan Maison when the snow conditions are sufficient.).

“Some lovely runs”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Late season skiing, with some great snow up high. Could get a little slushy at the end of the day when getting back to the town.
Some of the runs are long and wide allowing for some nice carving turns. A placed not to be bored of for an intermediate skier.
