Cervinia Ski Resort
Located at the end of the Aosta Valley and on the Italian side of the Matterhorn, the high-altitude ski resort of Cervinia not only guarantees fantastic snow coverage but also gives access over the border to Zermatt.
The sunny slopes above Cervinia are perfect for intermediate skiers and that’s before you even include the vast options across in Zermatt, for which you will need an upgraded lift pass. You can notch up some serious vertical – the 22km route from the Klein Matterhorn to the village of Valtournenche has a drop of more than 2300m – all on well-groomed pistes that are now increasingly equipped with snowmaking to improve snow reliability even further.
Prices are significantly lower than over in Switzerland and the food is fantastic, both in terms of value but also quality. Accommodation is mostly within the compact village centre, but a collection of ski-in-ski-out hotels are located just above and to the east of the centre.
If you’re struggling to choose which of the network of blues and reds to tackle, or fancy organising a guided day trip across to Zermatt then there is no better solution than to take advantage of the expert local advice given out by the Ski Club’s Rep – in resort this season from January to March.
