The Cervnia–Matterhorn area is one of the largest in the Alps, with a “domaine skiable” beyond compare: 350 km of slopes between Cervinia, Italy and Zermatt, Switzerland that stretch over the nearly 4,000 m of Piccolo Cervino and descend Valtournenche’s 1,524 m. The area’s ski runs offer the chance to ski all day without repeating the same run twice, alternating easier runs with those of increasing difficulty.
The famous Matterhorn peak, or Cervinio, is located between the Swiss mountains of Zermatt and the Italian highlands of Breuil-Cervinia and Valtournenche in the Valle d’Aosta. The Matterhorn Ski Paradise complex allows you to ski between the two countries on the same day, on more than 186 m of slopes. The region’s high altitude ensures a constant snow season, provides prime conditions not only for downhill skiing and snowboarding, but also other activities such as cross-country skiing, heli-skiing, and snowshoeing. The small town is quiet, with boutique shops, cafes, and more than 30 restaurants – don’t miss the delicious local polenta.
