- Terrain Parks:2
- X-Country:13 km
In the shadow of the Matterhorn, Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche is one half of the ski area linked with Zermatt, just over the boarder into Switzerland. Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche is an intermediate skiers paradise with kilometre after kilometre of wide open piste with an incredible vertical drop of 1,956 m (Plateau Rosà 3,480m to Valtournenche 1,524 m). Beginners will be equally pleased with a host of gentle pistes. Experts, however, may become slightly bored and forget that they are below one of Europe's major north faces. Experts may feel more at home just over the border in Zermatt. There are two snow parks at Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche: the Plan Maison area off the Fornet chairlift and at Zermatt, off the Furggsattel chairlift. Extensive snow making covers 53km of pistes (35%). The nearest airport is Turin Caselle (118km) but both of Milan's airports are also close enough to be good alternatives (Milan Malpensa 160km, Milan Linate 180km).

Visitor Reviews of Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche
Lewis from United Kingdom writes:
A huge disappointment due to high winds nearly every day. I went to Cervinia with the intention to ski into Zermatt for at least three days, but I barely even saw Cervinia from Valtournenche over the six days I was there. The snow, just after new year, was only down to 2000 meters and I was forced to ski down a boring red run with green grass and brown shrubs again and again. It got so bad that I even took a day off as saving the lift pass money was better than skiing.
Of course, you could be lucky and get day after day of blue sky and light winds. But the risk of bad weather, in my opinion, is too high. Even then there is little to interest the advanced skier compared with Argentiere, Chamonix, or the stable weather you can find in Austria. I've pretty much given up with skiing in Italy, but I'll stick to cycle touring in the summer.
