Snow overview for Italy
Monday 08 February 2016

Fresh snow was recorded at every one of our featured resorts in the country for the first time this season. As much as 45cm was picked up in places on Sunday, but everywhere saw more than 10cm. The sun was shining in places on Monday morning, but further snow is set to arrive overnight and into Tuesday.

The snowiest spots were Cervinia (65/240cm) which picked up 45cm, Madonna (40/120cm) where 40cm fell and Passo Tonale (50/100cm) which also saw 40cm of new snow on the upper slopes. Conditions as a result were drastically improved following the poor start to the season.

Livigno (33/75cm) and Arabba (26/48cm) also fared very well, seeing 30cm and 28cm respectively. With all lifts running at both resorts there was a large variety of pistes on offer, with even some off-piste available in places.
Even in the Milky Way, where conditions have been significantly below par this season, 20cm of fresh snow was recorded. This enabled 56 lifts across the area to open up, although only 81km of pistes from a possible 320km were open on Monday. The best conditions were to be found in the French sector by Montgenevre, but if you’re staying on the Italian side, the high altitude Sestriere (30/40cm) was the place to be.

The great news is that further spells of heavy snowfall are forecast for the coming week. It is due to set in during Monday night and not stop until Wednesday, by which time 50-100cm is possible – with the heaviest falls for the Aosta Valley and resorts such as Courmayeur, La Thuile and Cervinia.

Cervinia 27th Dec - 3rd Jan 16
Overall rating: 4 stars

Visited: December 2015

Travelled out to Cervinia on the 27th Dec, with family and friends and some reservations over the lack of snow (not snowed since 21st Nov).
Although we did not see any fresh snow until our last day of skiing, the Piste maintenance team in the resort were doing everything in their power to ensure that the pistes were in a reasonable condition....they must be commended on their efforts.
Although, not all the pistes were open, we still had enough skiing available to occupy us over the week. Main issue was the queues for the cable car in the morning. This was compounded by people being bused in from other resorts and it being New Year week.
We stayed in the Europa Hotel, booked via Crystal. The hotel has had a major revamp in all the public areas and restaurant, and the food and service did not reflect some of the reviews I'd read on Trip Advisor. The bedrooms, although clean tidy and nothing to complain about, just need the same revamp given to the public areas. Overall I thought the hotel was good and the staff friendly.
Apres Ski, the CopaPan is worth a visit, especially when happy hour is on !!!
We also ate out one night and Restaurant Sotto Zero is worth a visit.
Will definitely return to Cervinia.....hopefully when there is more snow.
