Cervinia

Cervinia is up there with one of the most popular ski resorts in Italy. It has a fantastically high ski altitude and impressive views of the Matterhorn. The ski resort suits beginner to intermediate skiers, with 160km worth of groomed slopes. It is a favourite with visitors as it is also close to Zermatt ski area, giving an opportunity to ski in both Italy and Switzerland.
