Cervinia itself (as in the resort centre) isn’t going to win any beauty contests. It just isn’t. In terms of its architecture and general charm, it can’t hold a candle to some of its neighbouring resorts. On the plus side, it’s all completely and utterly inconsequential. Doesn’t matter in the slightest. Because what Cervinia may lack in resort-centre charms it makes up for a thousand times over with absolutely spectacular skiing. Not to mention, the guarantee of a far longer and better season than almost anywhere else in the region.
Ski Resort Location
Cervinia lies in a high-altitude basin in the lap of Monte Cervino (the Matterhorn) and Piccolo Cervino (Klein Matterhorn), right in the heart of northwest Italy. But what’s interesting is that despite the rough, rugged and unforgiving nature of the landscape, the majority of the runs in and around Cervinia are laid back, relaxing and simply superb for intermediates. It has its most terrifying runs of course, but the smoothness of the skiing around Cervinia belies its backdrop.
Given the high altitude of Cervinia, there’s often no better resort in Europe for skiing clear into the spring season. Brilliant conditions are guaranteed and the pistes here are looked after with such meticulous care and attention that even the peak of the season doesn’t leave them in a sorry state. And if you’re willing to board the odd tourist bus here and there, you’ll find a ton to explore in the surrounding region.
