Three valleys sprawling across the border of two countries, Italy and Switzerland, makes Breuil-Cervinia one of the largest ski areas in the Alps. Though formerly called Breuil, the resort was named Cervinia by Mussolini himself in an effort to reflect the Italianate splendour of the mountain above it. This stunning resort is the perfect combination of beauty and activity, guaranteeing visitors superb quality snow due to its high altitude in the impressive presence of the famed Matterhorn.
While Breuil-Cervinia has a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere it is certainly not in short supply of lively bars; enjoying a vibrant après scene with live music and dancing. An abundance of high class hotels and luxury chalets means that you can enjoy an indulgent and stylish holiday. On top of this there is also a fantastic collection of restaurants serving many of the mouth-watering Italian dishes we all know and love.
With over 200km of piste skiing, Breuil-Cervinia offers the novel experience of never having to ski the same run twice in one day. The seemingly never-ending slopes are the perfect playground for winter sports enthusiasts of all abilities. The lifts of Breuil-Cervinia have a staggering hourly capacity of 36,995 people, ensuring that long waits will not be a concern. The resort also boasts the highest snowpark in Europe, sitting at 2,800m. Known as ‘IndianPark’, it is an enormous 400 metres long and 100 metres wide with rails, kickers, music and a Big Air, making it the ultimate spot for freestyle enthusiasts.
Breuil-Cervinia’s proficiency in entertainment is seemingly as infinite as its slopes; explore the slopes with the best mode of transport possible: a husky! After a 30 minute bumper course in all things sledging you can take to the mountains with your very own team of dogs, or sit back and enjoy the ride with a husky chauffeur. Snowshoeing and paragliding are also popular activities.
