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 29-Mar-2015)

The recent snowfall in the west has certainly been welcomed as spring conditions were taking their toll on the slopes. It’s still fairly warm, with an average temperature of around 5C. The east is currently feeling the effects of the clouds that were present in the west earlier. This has brought rainfall to some lower resorts but up at a higher altitude there are snowflakes falling. The Aosta valley, with Cervinia (45/270cm) and Pila (35/140cm) reported around 10-15cm of fresh snow on Thursday 26th March in the early hours, followed by sunny skies. With the east currently sat under thick clouds, rain and snow has fallen but Cortina (10/90cm) has profited from the arrival of the snow as the resort team have reported up to a total of 35cm over the past 24 hours. From this you can expect excellent pistes higher up, with pockets of fresh powder. It continued to be cloudy and reasonably cold so the fresh snow remained intact. The avalanche risk has been increased to a dangerous level and around half of the lifts were closed, meaning 19 lifts were closed leaving 21 in operation. Once the mountain is completely safe, there should be fantastic conditions waiting to be hit. The forecast so far is predicting the clouds, particularly in the east will start to fade thus joining the west in sunshine just in time for the weekend.

European Weather Outlook

The Alps are currently in a very unsettled spell of weather, with rain, snow and sun all being seen in the past few days. This is expected to continue over the weekend, with the best chance of brightness in the eastern and southern Alps on Saturday. More snow is expected for the northern Alps on Sunday/Monday, with between 20 and 50cm forecast across a wide area and possibly more in some favoured spots in Austria. Watch out as the freezing level is set to rise to between 1500-2000m, so rain may fall lower down. Mostly sunny and settled weather is forecast for the Pyrenees, with some prolonged spells of warm sunshine expected over the weekend. Temperatures are set to rise slightly above freezing at mid-mountain level, but will rise further next week – potentially hitting double digits on Tuesday. Unsettled weather is forecast for Bulgaria, with snow expected on the upper slopes of all featured resorts. Some big totals of more than 50cm can be expected, but sadly lower down rain is likely to fall. Following a sunny Friday, more snow is forecast for Scandinavia over the weekend, potentially bringing a further 10-20cm to go with Thursday’s snowfall. Western Norway in particular is looking very snowy next week. Snow is also in the forecast for Scotland, with snowfall likely every day heading into next week. The heaviest falls are set for the west coast but the east will not miss out either, hopefully bringing enough snow to reopen Glenshee and The Lecht.
