The Cervinia Ski Resort is located on the southern slopes of the Matterhorn. Located in the Aosta Valley Region the Cervinia-Breuil resort is a less expensive alternative to Zermatt. You can ski the Zermatt slopes from the Cervinia side.
This is an excellent resort for anyone who likes easy well groomed piste. Cervinia resort is a perfect spring destination with plenty of sunshine. If you are looking for bumps and power this is not the best destination. There is some challenging terrain on the Zermatt side. But staying on the Italian side you lose a lot of time to get over to these areas.
The village was re-named Cervinia when it was developed for skiing in the 1960's, but you will still find the original name of Breuil when you are searching on the map. There is not a lot to do in the evenings and your are about 24 km up the mountain. For this reaon bad weather can shut down the resort in the harsher winter months, especially high winds.
