Overview
More
An infinite snowy area that begins at 1,524 metres, in Valtournenche, embraces Breuil-Cervinia, rises up to 3,480 metres of Plateau Rosà, touches the 4,000 m peak of Piccolo Cervino, climbes up to 4,478 m to the top of the Cervino. An area where the infinite snow continues on the Swiss side to Zermatt. An area where the snow is the setting of sport, holidays and fun. The tourism vocation of Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche had it’s beginning more than two hundred years ago. Excursionists and academics were the pioneers of a tourism that united sport, scientific study and intellectual exchange. In 1936, a new Breuil-Cervinia was created. The construction of the first cable car was a cutting-edge work of engineering excellence. The Hotel Gran Baita situated at the foot of the slopes, with the cable car departure station annexed to it, anticipates by over half a century the concept of an integral complex for skiing. Breuil-Cervinia became the Queen of the snow. From sport to cinema, politics and commerce, those who count meet here. Innovation, in Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche, is the key word. New ways to practice sport, new ways to enjoy a holiday, new services to allow more free time. The technology is not limited to the rapid lift systems, but also to the territorial fibre optic network that allows the information to be transmitted in real time. Time and space dimensions have changed thanks to the e-skipass, to the keycard and to the hotel reservation system via the internet. 350 thousands web navigators every month visiting the site to check out the webcams, weather reports, lift status and snow conditions. In Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche, collaboration between the operators in the area guarantees guests quality and state of the art solutions.

Very pretty resort and lots of great slopes that I wish I could have had the pleasure to try but due to heavy snow and avalanche threats the resort closed and I could only ski 2 out of my 6 days there.

Truly a paradise for skiing. The slopes are very wide and friendly, well designed to enjoy the magnanimous views! The link to Zermatt was closed for the whole week, so don't buy the international pass unless you know it's going to be great weather all...More

Breuil-Cervinia offers a picturesque Italian village (looks like the village of Geppetto, father of Pinocchio). We stayed in the village, and the slopes were just a 2min walk away from the hotel entrance. Vistas are great - Matterhorn is simply majestic!

The last few days saw the most snowfall for 30 year but today the sun shone and the mountains and resort were just beautiful. The skiing was just superb and a powder lovers dream. Great little picturesque town centre for the apres ski.

Not the most charming resort but the skiing is great. Beware though that the weather can change easily and it is best to have a ski instructor at all times not to get lost in the white out.
