Cervinia is located in the Matterhorn Ski Paradise ski area in Italy. The ski area provides direct access to Zermatt as well as Valtouneche. The skiing in Cervinia is the polar opposite to the skiing in Zermatt. It offers a wide range of flattering blue and red pistes which suit beginners and intermediates perfectly. For experts, Zermatt is easily accessed too so there is something here for all levels of skier or boarder. Cervinia also has a far superior snow-park to Zermatt!
The resort itself is high altitude, snow sure and many of the chalets and hotels here provide ski to the door convenience. Whilst it doesn’t have the sheer number of restaurants and bars over the valley, there are some really lively apres-ski bars on the main snow front and some wonderful Italian eateries too.
