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 18-Dec-2014)

There was a mixture of weather seen across Italy on Thursday 18th December. Some resorts experienced sunshine and clouds whereas others had light rainfall. There is a warm weather front in Europe at the moment and it has recently hit Italy, which even saw some high resorts such as Val Senales (5/260cm) experience light rainfall. There is a still lot of good riding available in Italy despite recent weather. The Presena Glacier (40/350cm) has an excellent base depth and on Thursday there were 20 lifts in operation. The weather was a mixture of sunshine and cloud with a mid-mountain temperature of around 2C. Cesena, Courmayeur, Claviere and Macugnaga are all still closed until snow conditions improve. If you are heading out to any of our featured Italian resorts this weekend you can expect much brighter skies, there should be a few spots of cloud but on the whole it’ll be fairly sunny. The temperature looks as though it will drop and hover around zero before rising at the start of the new week, however come Christmas time a cold front will settle in, which will reduce temperatures significantly and could bring fresh snow.

European Weather Outlook

The weather across Europe is set to be predominantly sunny as we move into next week. Some clouds could deliver fresh snow at the start of the weekend but this will mostly be in Andorra, Austria, Germany and Switzerland. This will not be enough to dramatically enhance the overall riding conditions but fresh snow is still a nice thing to receive. Next week will then be predominantly sunny with the freezing level rising to over 3,000m for Tuesday 23rd December before plummeting again to around 1,000m for Christmas. There is good news for Christmas too as further fresh snowfall is forecast on Christmas Day or Boxing Day at most European resorts. Norway and Sweden are forecast a different week to most of Europe though, with fresh snow predicted on most days. The Swedish resort of Salen may be the exception here though as less snow may land at this resort. The Scottish resorts should see a similarly cloudy week to the Scandinavian resorts although rain may result at times and strong winds are expected, which could affect lift operations. Fresh snowfall is forecast at times though, and Christmas visitors could be in for a great time with snow on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
