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 28-Nov-2015)

Temperatures remain low across many resorts in Italy on Thursday 26th November, a trend that looks likely to continue over the coming weekend. Conditions remain excellent in Cervinia (20/145cm) thanks to 35cm that fell over the weekend. Four lifts were running on Thursday, with work commencing to open up more terrain in the near future. It was cloudy in resort on Thursday, with the possibility of a light dusting of snow to refresh the pistes. It was very much a similar story in Val Senales (5/85cm), where piste conditions remain good thanks to recent snowfall. Snow flurries can be expected in both resorts over the weekend, though this will give way to a period of settled weather next week, with high temperatures forecast. This weekend is set to bring about a flurry of resort openings across Italy. These include Alagna, Cavalese, Champoluc, Cortina, Gressoney-La-Trinite, Kronplatz, Livigno, Madesimo, Madonna di CAmpiglio, Santa Caterina and Sestriere. These opening dates were correct as of Thursday 26th November and are subject to change at any time.

European Weather Outlook

Thursday’s snow is set to clear through the Alps from the west, lingering longest in the Austrian Alps, where a further 10cm is possible during the day. A mostly sunny Friday is then forecast, accompanied by temperatures well below freezing at all levels. Another snow front is then set to move into the Alps on Saturday, although it is looking likely to be less potent than initially expected. Snowfall totals are therefore likely to be much more modest, with between 10-25cm forecast for most resorts in the Alps. Sunshine and settled weather finally looks to be returning in time for the new week, with sunny skies and milder temperatures (above freezing at most levels during the day) expected. Little snowmelt is likely however owing to cold overnight temperatures, short days and weak sunshine. Very similar weather is forecast for the Pyrenees, although less snow is forecast to fall over the weekend, with only 10cm likely at our featured resorts. Slightly higher temperatures are also forecast next week, with daytime peaks of around 7C expected at mid-mountain level. Heavy snow is forecast for Bulgaria on Friday, dropping as much as 30cm on our featured resorts. More settled weather is then expected next week, with a slow rise in temperature looking likely as the week progresses. Once Friday’s warm spell passes through, a very wintry spell of weather is predicted for Scandinavia over the weekend and into the start of next week. Heavy snow is set to track through Norway and Sweden on Sunday/Monday, bringing at least 20cm of new snow to our featured resorts, with as much as 50cm possible at Voss on the west coast. Very unsettled and stormy weather is forecast for Scotland over the weekend and into next week, with high winds forecast to accompany spells of heavy rain and heavy snow. Hopefully after the snow falls (most likely on Friday and Saturday), the rain will not wash away all of the fresh accumulations and a decent base will begin to build.
