Ski Holidays in Cervinia, Italy
Cervinia is a high, snow sure resort with links to Zermatt. Most of the accommodation is either hotel or apartment based. We have an excellent Chalet Hotel there called the Dragon and the Club Med is our best seller. The centre of the resort is pedestrianised and is lined with bars restaurants and little Italian boutiques. Cervinia has been making great efforts in recent years to soften its image, particularly in the centre. Many of the buildings built in the 60’s have been reclad in wood.

Skiing in Cervinia
The skiing is predominately suited to beginners and intermediates, advanced skiers can find some interesting runs particularly down towards Valtournenche. Beginners start on the village nursery slope and then can progress upwards and outwards to most areas of the mountain. Intermediates really have the run of the whole area and should not find anything which is beyond their capability. The link to Zermatt opens up a huge skiing area but is regarded as more useful for those based in Zermatt looking for an enjoyable cruise into Italy for lunch.
Snow conditions in Cervinia
There are snow making facilities located on the lower part of the mountains so that skiers can take advantage of skiing the whole mountain throughout the season.
