Best in Europe:-) Lots of extremely well prepared slopes. If you need walls, there are sides on the Matterhorn as well as a lot of difficult slopes in Zermatt. Cervinia is a meditative place for us who love skiing and good food.

Cervinia is lovely!

But big warning for an apartment rental Immobiliare monte cervino! Really frivolous and completely impossible to have and do with on occasions!! Had to threaten debt collection to get back the deposit of 1,500 EUR and a hell of a lot of fees were charged, there was only one key for 4 beds, etc. Do yourself a favor and book with another agency in the village.

As usual in Italy, it is very disorganized and a bit chaotic. It did not get better because they did not open up to Zermatt so you had to stick to Cervinia.
The whole system is aging and would need a major overhaul. In addition, all slopes end down at two lift stations, which creates queues. The information about what is open, what weather prevails in the various places hardly worked at all, despite the fact that they have created a new app that they proudly market. In addition, there are red slopes at the bottom towards the village, which means that they are completely shattered early in the day by beginners.
A bit up there is the intermediate area Plain Maison which is quite flat. Feels more like a transport area to the higher regions.
The higher regions are significantly better, but even here it is often torn apart early as the slopes have slopes combined with flatter sections. Most red slopes have much steeper sections interspersed with green or blue, but it is the steepest section that determines the color.
Almost none of the black slopes were open (early January) and if they opened you had to keep an eye out yourself. This despite the fact that they marketed that they had record snow. Suspects that they had a real loss of man due to Covid and therefore did not have time.
Is it skiing you are looking for I would choose something more modern, or stay on the Zermatt side.
The food in most places was ok, but did not reach the usual Italian class.
Not quite sure that Cervina provides such a much better experience than the best resorts in the Swedish mountains. And if you still want to get down to the Alps, there are definitely better places.
I was also really surprised at how mediocre our travel host (STS-Alpin) behaved. A little company trip all over. However, I have not allowed this to affect the assessment above.

Have been to Cervinia with a group of boys, alone with teenage children, with wife and children and with completely alone. Always had a great stay skiing. We always go a lot on the Zermatt side during the morning and after lunch on the Cervinia side. Very good piste and the slopes are as wide as motorways and fit a carving man like me :)
Small cozy village with a number of nice restaurants.

Was there week 9 2020. Probably had a bit of bad luck with the weather because the lift to Zermatt was closed for the most part due to strong winds. This meant that there were often very long queues in Cervinia. Especially in the lifts from the bottom of the village. We stood for an hour once in the gondola lift. Actually a very nice system with good slopes, but the queues lowered the rating.

Had a great trip there 20 years ago. The village, the fabulous slopes and that you can enjoy Zermatt's system without being completely skinned on the wallet.

A system that suits the whole family. We like Cervinia / Zermatt very much and for the winter of 19/20 we make our fourth season. We especially like that the system is so big and everyone in the family can find their challenges. The 15 year old mostly hangs on the Zermatt side and looks for long lovely off piste runs. Our 11 year old loves the long flat dance floor and develops extremely mkt for each season. Fantastic beautiful and wonderful restaurants on the slopes that invite long lovely lunches in the sunshine.

Cervinia is really good - especially if you want to go over to Zermatt. The whole system (cervinia + zermatt) is huge and there are slopes for everyone. We chose to live on the Italian side (cervinia) as Zermatt is kind of twice as expensive. Lovely little alpby with everything you need. I cannot say anything negative about Cervinia / Zermatt except that the transport lift from Zermatt closes early and stands still for the smallest little it felt. Perfectly sloping slopes with several different lunch places on the slopes to chill out. Easy to get from Milan and if you do not book the trip as a "regular" pacet cruise, you can get really cheap even with ski in - ski out accommodation, cheaper than going to the Swedish mountains I would say.

Was in Cervinia during week 12, 2019 and stayed at Hosquet Lodge almost furthest north in the village. It was a B&B with 6 rooms which was very nice with staff, room & breakfast. They had ski storage with boot warmer in the basement. The place can be seen as remote but it is 100 meters to the main street and 250 meters to the lift which was close enough for us.

Lift system is somewhat outdated with slow seat lifts and gondolas on the entire Italian side of the mountain. Directly when you come over to Zermatt, it is a completely different standard on the lift system (except the anchor lifts on the glacier). To the positive, it was very easy to get to both Valtournenche and Zermatt to gain access to more slopes.
If you are in Cervinia for more than a few days then the international ski pass is recommended to be able to get to Switzerland for not getting tired of skiing in Cervinia. There are some flat slopes around Plan Maison in the middle but otherwise decent slope in the red slopes.

Flat slopes. Feels like long transport distances
