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-Jan-2017)

Conditions were sunny and very cold in Italy on Monday 16th January. Conditions on snow were mostly excellent today thanks to some snowfalls over the weekend. The snowfalls were light for resorts in the Dolomites and heavy in resorts around the Mont Blanc Massif. Courmayeur (30/90cm) experienced sensational snowfall at the weekend, with one dump totalling 50cm. Today conditions in the resort were still excellent and pockets of powder could still be found off-piste. Elsewhere, Cervinia (45/125cm) was slow to open all of its lifts today, as avalanche control work was required after the weekend snowfalls and high winds. Broadly speaking, conditions remain excellent on piste but limited off-piste. Resorts in the Sella Ronda are still skiing almost entirely on an artificial snow base. The best skiing can currently be found in the Mont Blanc Massif and Matterhorn areas. In the forecast, sunshine will make a strong return this week, dominating the forecast. No new snow is expected this week.

European Weather Outlook

It appears that the well overdue but all together sensational current storm cycle is drawing to a close. Metres of snow have fallen in the past week and it appears the winter season has finally had the reboot it needed, however the next change is upon us. The next 48 to 72 hours will see the last tiny amounts of snow fall from the sky before strong sunshine returns. From Wednesday morning skiers and riders can expected to wake up to sunny clear skies and dry conditions, not matter where you are in the European Alps. Sunny conditions will remain in place everywhere right though until Sunday the 22nd. If you’re skiing Europe next week, don’t fret. It is still far too early to forecast how conditions will be beyond the 22nd. In the Pyrenees, Andorra is currently experiencing sensational snowfalls. After an excellent weekend the next 36 hours should see around 30cm of fresh. Beyond this window expect mostly sunny conditions until the weekend. In far north Scandinavia expect a continuation of current conditions with a mix of sun, cloud and light snowfall.
