Cervinia is an Italian ski resort, one of the highest in Europe, which lies at the end of a long valley off the Aosta Valley. Located at height of a little over two thousand metres, it is snow sure throughout the season. Cervinia is a purpose built resort with a pedestrianised centre. The highest lift reaches almost three thousand five hundred feet and the area, together with Zermatt offers a vast three hundred and fifty kilometres of piste. Zermatt on the Swiss side of the Matterhorn adds a new dimension as the slopes offer more challenging terrain. With a wide variety of pistes, it is easy to see why Cervinia is such a popular resort. It attracts all age groups as well as families as facilities are good with a non-ski kindergarten from the age of two and a ski kindergarten from the age of five.
Low cost Cervinia ski & snowboard holidays are in great demand as there is such a large choice of slopes accommodating all levels of expertise. Novices have a choice of nursery slopes in the village and usually, with the help of expert tuition, they quickly move onwards and upwards to the Plan Maison from where they can take the long, gentle blue run back to the village. Intermediates have long descents, some with mogul fields which can be exhilarating. The run down from the Rosa Plateau to Valtournenche is an amazing twenty-two kilometres. Advanced skiers have a number of black runs to test their expertise and they can of course try out the more difficult slopes on the Swiss side of the mountain. The resort is ideal for snowboarders with wide slopes and a snow park.
Accommodation in the form of hotels and apartments reaches high standards with tariffs to suit most budgets. The many restaurants satisfy all tastes, and you can order anything from the humble pizza to haute cuisine. Nightlife is fairly lively and there are a range of apres ski activities which include a bowling alley, a swimming pool, an ice rink, a cinema and a gymnasium.
The Cervinia ski season lasts from the middle of December until the middle of April. Many regional airports have direct flights to Turin and Milan.
