Breuil-Cervinia, famous as a winter and summer
resort. It is situated at the south foot of the Matterhorn (Monte Cervino).
The substantial ski area is linked with Zermatt, and their joint ski area
comprises 62 lifts, giving access to far more challenging pistes on the
Swiss side for which you can pay a daily supplement.
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.
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.
