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 05-Mar-2015)

Italy was quite sunny in the western regions with light patches of cloud with the east seeing many more clouds. Overall it is quite cold in Italy which is good news for the pistes as the warmer climate has made way for a colder front. The slopes are still holding up but more snow would be nice to ensure the resort runs receive a fresh layer. Canazei (40/130cm) was one of a minority of resorts that received fresh snow with around 10cm being recorded on Wednesday. On Thursday 5th March the sun took up most of the sky with a few spots of light cloud. It was fairly cold too with a mid-mountain temperature of around -9C. Powder pockets are being cut through and their slopes are looking very nice indeed and with all 13 lifts running a good day’s skiing was had at Canazei. Some resorts were affected by the high winds on Thursday, particularly Cervinia (50/290cm), which saw all its lifts shut. Val Senales (35/320cm) and Champoluc (60/180cm) both had limited skiing too as a result of high winds closing the majority of their lift stations. With the next transfer day just around the corner, so is plenty of sunshine. The forecast is indicating that any clouds in the east will start to fade and be replaced by sunshine in time for the weekend.

European Weather Outlook

A settled spell of weather is finally set to arrive in the Alps, bringing sunny skies, light winds and hopefully some great skiing weather. Temperatures are set to rise over the weekend, with freezing levels nudging above 2,000m. Therefore expect some softening of the lower and south facing slopes, but not too much snowmelt. It is certainly setting up to be a fantastic weekend. Bright sunshine is also expected for the Pyrenees, making a welcome change following the huge snowfalls during February. The freezing level is set to rise to 2,500m so again expect some spring-like conditions on the lower and south facing slopes. Very heavy snow is forecast for Bulgaria, with possibly as much as a metre landing on the upper slopes. Some rain may fall on the lowest slopes on Friday, but with the freezing level dropping to 500m by Saturday, snow will again fall at all levels. The weather is then expected to clear on Monday – hopefully leading to a sunny week in which to enjoy the powder. Fairly mixed weather is expected over the weekend in Scandinavia, with the possibility of sunny breaks but also some rain/snow showers for all our featured resorts. More settled and bright weather is expected for the new week, particularly in Norway. The rollercoaster that is the Scottish weather is set to continue this weekend. Mild conditions are forecast to move in, raising freezing levels before they drop back down again on Sunday. Some new snow is expected, but this is likely to be limited to the upper slopes and it is possible on Saturday that rain will fall at all levels. High winds are also set to be an issue.
