Cervinia

Ski resorts in Italy
Cervinia in northwestern Italy is located in the Aosta Valley, by the foot of the Matterhorn. The high elevation village is situated at an altitude of 6580 feet and the mountain stretches to 11,400 feet above sea level. The fact that the village is located at 6500 feet makes it the highest in Italy.

The ski resort is connected to Zermatt through Plateau Rosa. The longest stretch of pistes measures as much as 22 km. The ski resort is a bit like Zermatt's younger sibling, considering it has calmer and more family friendly slopes compared to the ones in Zermatt, which are much steeper.

Cervinia is one of Europe's highest ski resorts, with a cold and snowy climate. This area has 56 marked slopes and 24 lifts. In December it usually snows an avarage of 140-160 cm.

The La Ventina piste recently grabbed the third spot when CNN ranked the world's best pistes.

This is a small village and within walking distance to pretty much wherever you choose to stay. Do you want a cozy family vacation in which there is no need to worry about steep slopes or maps to find your way around? This place will be perfect for you.
Cervinia belong to Matterhorn Ski Paradise.
