At 2,050m, with slopes rising to 3,883m, it is one of Europes most snow-sure resorts, a place where long runs right down to village level are pretty much certain from the beginning of December until early May. The resort is ideally suited to  beginners and intermediates, with long, undemanding runs against a beautiful backdrop. Cervinia village

Access: Cervinia is located at the head of its own valley, off the Aosta Valley, and is 140km (87 miles) from Turin airport, and is accessed from the Aosta - Turin motorway.. Drivers from the North and West should enter Italy through the Mont Blanc tunnel from Chamonix in France. The Gran San Bernardo tunnel from Switzerland brings drivers to the motorway at Aosta. From Aosta it is about 12 miles to Chtillon where you exit the A5 and head up the final 19 miles to Cervinia via Valtournenche. Chains should be carried in case of snowfall. Drivers from the south will arrive on the same motorway, the A5, from Turin or Milan, heading in the opposite direction.

There are five free and one chargeable car parks in the resort but cars tend to park anywhere, including in the pedestrian zones at weekends, which have only temporary barriers to stop them. The nearest rail station is at Chatillon, 27km (17 miles) away, from where there is a bus connection.
