Cervinia Resort Info

Based on the Italian side of the Matterhorn, Cervinia is lift-linked to Zermatt, with 200km of its own runs. Because of its high altitude, it has a long season, great snow and is an absolute haven for intermediates. The slopes are superb for cruising and mileage skiing, while beginners will find masses of coverage. Advanced skiers will need to head over into Switzerland for extended challenges, although you'll have to pay extra to cross to Zermatt. Because of its position, the scenery is outstanding, but this can be marred by poor weather and high winds, which can often cause the higher lifts to be closed. If the weather holds, you can usually be guaranteed loads of sun as well as long tree-lined runs. The ski school is getting better but, as with many Italian resorts, childcare is rather limited.

On the downside, Cervinia is not the most attractive resort and is entirely purpose-built. It was founded in the 1930s by Mussolini and still doesn't cater very well for non-skiers. There are good restaurants on and off the mountain, but their prices are nearly as steep as the Matterhorn itself. Weekend crowds can put pressure on the old lift system, but also improve the quality of après-ski. Access from the accommodation to the lifts is inconvenient, requiring an uphill walk.

Overall, Cervinia is great for lower ability skiers and boarders and much cheaper than its Swiss neighbour. Experts, kids and party animals may not find Cervinia ideal, although the first group do have Zermatt nearby to keep them busy.

Snow Overview - Italy  (snow news updated 30-Mar-2017)

Thursday 30th march saw largely sunny, spring conditions right around the Italian ski fields. On piste snow is behaving exactly how we would expect for this time of year with firm icy conditions in the morning, turning slushy and soft as the day progresses. The best conditions are still to be found in Cervinia (30/210cm) chiefly due to huge altitude range offered by the ski area. Elsewhere the skiing is still surprisingly good on piste. Off-piste options remain limited however. In the forecast, a varied mix of rain and snow is expected this weekend. Cloud cover will be abundant with snow falling mostly around The Matterhorn, in the Monterosa ski area and to a lesser extent in the Aosta Valley resorts. The rain snow limit will move between 2200 metres up to 2700 metres.

European Weather Outlook

It has been a fairly pleasant start to the spring ski season in The Alps with mostly sunny skies dominating the weather pattern. However this weekend will see shift away from this pattern, wide spread cloud, rain and even thunderstorms are forecast right around the main Alps range. The rain snow limit will vary widely between 2200 metres all the way up to 2900 metres. For those heading out over the Easter break, don’t fear. The unstable weather should pass by Monday, leaving behind clear sunny conditions. You won’t be skiing powder, but on piste conditions will be fun and forgiving. Finding the best conditions will be a matter of finding the right altitude on the slope for the resort you are in.
