Stayed at Club Med and had a great time. Perfect weather for 6 days so no problem with winds on top. The runs at Cervinia are great for lessons and the mountains are full of breathtaking views. No powder as the slopes are consistently groomed. Not safe for off-piste due to crevices on the glaciers. You have to plan your day to Zermatt as there is no way back, except up the lift. Overall, well worth a visit.

Good eating out Limited apres ski

Great place for messing around, great snow and ok food and hotels, Cervinia is great for learners and skiers that like to cruise on long slopes. Ok for intermediates and advanced but boarders will soon become bored with scooting or walking as there are huge flat areas!!! But you can go over into Zermatt (Swiss) which is great. However, I think that Cervinia is better as the food and hotels, ski passes etc are all a lot cheaper than Zermatt and it doesn't take long to head up and over to Zermatt. I reckon that you can ski/ board everything in a week if you are keen but it would also be great for two weeks.

Long slopes No negative aspects!

We went to Cervinia 13-20/01/08. Stayed at the Petit Palais. We had a great time, lovely snow - the best I have seen in years. The runs were well prepared and maintained, although if you are looking for black runs choose a different resort. Well worth going into Switzerland for the day. We skied down from the highest lift in Europe, very cold but fantastic. Also the 22k run back in resort is beautiful. Very pleased with hotel, clean, warm with a nice spa. Cooked breakfast horrid, but evening meals good. Dont pay extra for a bath, if you are over 5' you can hardly get in it anyway! We would recommend the Copper Pan restaurant and the Bar Au Planet.

Few challenges for experts Long slopes

We would have loved the opportunity to get over to Switzerland but the bad weather in the beginning of March put a stop to those plans. When the sun doesn't shine in the Alps you get to looking around a bit more than you would normally. Cervinia was probably a pearl in the 1960s and 70s. Unfortunately it's now unkempt and unattractive. Lots of very old lifts that are like park benches and freezing cold when the winds of Cervinia blow, as they often do. It was an unusual event to get on a lift and get to the top without at least 2 stops. The main lift terminals are badly in need of repair, broken and slippy floors, uphill and down dale so that you're bathed in sweat before the day even starts

What a gem of a resort! Very snow sure and everything is no more than 5 minutes walk away. he Dragon is excellent for apres with live music and big screen for sports (and Guinness!)and the Matterhorn Pizza does great food. Eating on the mountain is pricey (as expected) but try Chalet Etoile between Blues 4&6 (stop by in the morning and book a table). A few things to note about this resort though because it's not all a bed of roses: 1) The weather is VERY unpredictable, more so than any other Alpine resort I have visited. The links with Zermatt close frequently and I would recommend buying a local pass and upgrading to the area pass when the lifts are open. Getting stuck in Zermatt will b
