Cervinia Ski Resort

Cervinia is one of Italy’s leading ski resorts. Lift linked to Zermatt in Switzerland, Cervinia has access to Europe’s highest ski lifts, skiing and boarding summer and winter, and one of the biggest ski areas in Italy with 350km of pistes.

Cervinia skiers and boarders also have access to one of the world's longest ski runs, an epic descent of more than 20km from the Klein Matterhorn above Zermatt down to Cervinia's lift-linked neighbour, Valtournenche. There's a choice of lift pass with the Italian Area Pass covering all the lifts in Cervinia and Valtournenche, and the International Pass also valid for all ski lifts in Zermatt.

Cervinia's pisted runs are well marked and perfectly groomed throughout the season. The ski area, which includes views of some of Europe's grandest peaks, is great for beginners and intermediates, and advanced skiers and boarders have the advantage of some good off piste and reasonably priced heli ski, which gives access to some magnificent terrain and high altitude powder.

Cervinia is an excellent resort for mixed ability groups with many central meeting and eating places that most levels of skier and boarder are able to reach.  Off mountain, the compact centre of Cervinia is mainly pedestrianised and pleasant to stroll in with some good shops, plenty of convivial bars, pizzerias and restaurants and some excellent accommodation.
