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.

It is effectively as big as the 3 vallees. It may be technically smaller but it is such a big area that you can never do it all in 1 week.

Long runs and lots of powder! If you stay in Zermatt, you simply must cross over to the Italian side! Stop in the Chalet Etoile for lunch, you won't be disappointed.

This was my first time here and I loved it. Tons of off-piste runs and fresh powder everywhere. My legs are quite sore after three days but I enjoyed every minute of it.

Good alternative solution to Zermatt, starting skiing on Italian side. Be aware that even during nice weather it can get very cold and windy. Would be great if they would plan some refurbishment of the ski lifts infrastructure, also the number of ticket offices is not sufficient, which is causing long queues.

Cervinia ski area is by far the best option, in terms of price/quality ratio, for winter/summer skiing in the Italian western Alps. The southern side of the Matterhorn is less known than its Swiss counterpart, but it's still iconic and together with the Grandes Murailles mountains and Plateau Rosa glacier, it is one of the most beautiful scenery in the...

We aren't experienced or mad keen skiers but loved the idea of being able to ski in the summer and so it was high on the list of things to do during our week in Cervinia. We got to the Cervinia cable car station and rented boots skis, poles and helmets from the shop by the lift cost about 50... More
