Overview
More
An infinite snowy area that begins at 1,524 metres, in Valtournenche, embraces Breuil-Cervinia, rises up to 3,480 metres of Plateau Rosà, touches the 4,000 m peak of Piccolo Cervino, climbes up to 4,478 m to the top of the Cervino. An area where the infinite snow continues on the Swiss side to Zermatt. An area where the snow is the setting of sport, holidays and fun. The tourism vocation of Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche had it’s beginning more than two hundred years ago. Excursionists and academics were the pioneers of a tourism that united sport, scientific study and intellectual exchange. In 1936, a new Breuil-Cervinia was created. The construction of the first cable car was a cutting-edge work of engineering excellence. The Hotel Gran Baita situated at the foot of the slopes, with the cable car departure station annexed to it, anticipates by over half a century the concept of an integral complex for skiing. Breuil-Cervinia became the Queen of the snow. From sport to cinema, politics and commerce, those who count meet here. Innovation, in Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche, is the key word. New ways to practice sport, new ways to enjoy a holiday, new services to allow more free time. The technology is not limited to the rapid lift systems, but also to the territorial fibre optic network that allows the information to be transmitted in real time. Time and space dimensions have changed thanks to the e-skipass, to the keycard and to the hotel reservation system via the internet. 350 thousands web navigators every month visiting the site to check out the webcams, weather reports, lift status and snow conditions. In Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche, collaboration between the operators in the area guarantees guests quality and state of the art solutions.

Fantastic ski area for most skiers. ( but not for advanced probably) Long, well groomed slopes, massive area if you include the Zermatt pass. But I think the Cervinia - Valtourneche ticket would suffice for many and save money ! Great mountain restaurants too....

Have visited Cervinia many times, it really has it all for skiing enthusiasts. Good slopes of varying difficulty degrees that are well maintained, good lifts and nice restaurants. Beautiful views, especially on the Swiss side!

Long, well groomed slopes and excellent, modern ski lifts made this a great place for a family ski holiday. (Not really for advanced skiers though). The area was quiet. Mountain restaurants were numerous, food delicious and very reasonably priced. The only downside - most mountain...More

This is always a great choice for Easter skiing, where you can spend most of the day skiing between 3500 and 2500 metres. Valtournenche is a lovely, if small, adjoining ski area, though you can only ski back to Cervinia via a longish, steep button...More

Lots of cruisey red and blue runs. The height of the skiing from 1500 to 3850m (Zermatt glacier) makes the snow conditions excellent, even for a Easter break. Plenty of off-piste options for the more adventurous. Lots of long runs up to 12kms. Only down...More

Hi! Hard to say, it depends on what you are looking for, and the budget, of course. I am only partial satisfied with the place we were, so won`t recommend it. If not coming by car, check the proximity to slopes and shops... More

Justin, it is hard to say. During my week there 2weeks ago, every day both mountains and the connection area were open. Based on my understanding the Italian side is more prone to closure due to high winds. That said... More
