Located at the foot of the majestic Matterhorn Mountain, on the Italian side of the scenic Aosta Valley, Cervinia Ski Resort stands as a remarkable alpine haven. This snow-certain, high-altitude resort presents awe-inspiring vistas and well-groomed slopes basked in sunshine across a long snow season, usually lasting until mid-April.
Take a flight into Turin or Milan, then a private transfer, to arrive in snow-coated Cervinia. This animated Alpine village oozes a modern feel, bursting with shops, bar and restaurants, while also holding onto a degree of historic charm. The streets are entirely pedestrianised, and yours to roam freely. The mighty Matterhorn and its surrounding mountains stand tall above the wooden chalets, constantly reminding you of all the fantastic skiing opportunities to come during your ski holiday in Cervinia.
Cervinia can offer something special to all ability levels, whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced skier. There’s an excellent selection of village nursery slopes to help build confidence, and a stream of blue runs at Plan Maison when you’re ready to take the next step.
For intermediates, there’s lots of gentle runs to try, along with the opportunity to access Zermatt’s Klein Matterhorn area, just across the border of Switzerland. With this lift pass, you can ski in two countries in one day! This may also appeal to expert skiers seeking a challenge, as the 22km route from the Klein Matterhorn village of Valtournenche has a drop of more than 2300m.
The well-groomed slopes in Cervinia aren’t only for skiing, they can take you on other expeditions, too. Soar high in a cable car to the summit of the Piccolo Cervino, where you can venture underground through a tunnel to find Cervinia's world-renowned ice caves, sculpted by nature's innate artistry. You can also visit the snow park, or try some ice skating, ski mountaineering, snow shoeing, freeriding or heliskiing.
When it comes to accommodation, our portfolio of chalets and stylish hotels in Cervinia offer the epitome of alpine luxury. Immerse yourself in the opulence of our alpine-style properties, boasting attentive service, awe-inspiring panoramic views of the mountains, indoor pools, and remarkable restaurants serving delicious gourmet fare.
