The roots of tourism in this area lie as far back as two hundred years ago when raw nature reigned here. Pioneers of the tourism industry united snow sport, science and intellectual exchange and in 1936 a new Breuil-Cervinia was created. The construction of the first cable car represented cutting-edge engineering excellence. The Gran Baita Hotel led the way in the revolutionary concept of an integrated skiing complex. Since then, innovation has been the keyword here: modern ways to practice sport, interesting ways to enjoy holidays, outstanding services. Forefront technology is used in the rapid lift systems as well as in the fibre optic network allowing the real-time swift transmission of information about the weather, the snow quality and the condition of the slopes. So, every day on these slopes is a safe day. Good collaboration between operators contributes to an experience of the highest quality for guests renting a luxury catered ski chalet. Cervinia, the queen of snow, is where sport aficionados, movie stars, the politically ambitious and the economically powerful meet and play together.
