Ski Weekends in Cervinia

Set at 2000m high in the Italian Alps, Cervinia is almost guaranteed good snow from late December to late April, making it a great choice for short breaks towards the end of season. Cervinia finds itself on the Italian side of the famous Matterhorn, sharing a huge ski area and lift pass with Switzerland's exclusive resort of Zermatt.

With seemingly endless gentle pistes, Cervinia is ideal for mixed ability groups, where long cruising blue and red runs make up a great winter playground. For those seeking a bigger challenge, use of the extensive lift system for a round trip to Zermatt's more testing black runs can make an excellent full day's skiing.

As you might expect from an Italian resort reported to be Mussolini's favourite, there is an imperial pre-WWII feel to the town, that has since been complemented by newer buildings and the development of some quality hotels and excellent restaurants - Hermitage and Le Bistro de l'Abbé being especially good.

This combination of a long, snow-sure season, expansive ski area and quiet yet good quality apres-ski, mean that Cervinia is a very good choice for entertaining your clients or staff with a high quality ski weekend.
