What's the skiing like? Cervinia (2050m) has some of the highest slopes in Europe, reaching up to 3480 metres, offering excellent snow coverage and a long ski season lasting November into May. Cervinia is located on the Italian side of the iconic Matterhorn Mountain and skiing over to neighbouring Zermatt on the Swiss side is also possible, offering a combined 322km of slopes, linked with fast, modern lifts.

Best suited to? Beginners and intermediates are spoilt for choice with endless long blue and red runs. Cervinia is also popular with freestyle fans who flock to the Indian terrain park (1.2km long, 200m wide and 11 features).

What's the resort like? The small, car-free village has a pretty centre with charaterful cobbled streets and stylish Italian boutiques. It is popular with famillies and there's a good choice of ski-in/ski-out accommodation thanks to the reliable snowfall. Nighlife in Cervinia isn't too raucous, but livens up considerably at weekends with live music, djs and cocktails.

The views from the Italian side of the border are phenomenal which is not at all surprising considering that the resort is set in a jagged high-altitude basin in the middle of the Matterhorn and Piccolo Cervino (Klein Matterhorn).

Non-skiing activities: Not many non-skiing activities, but plenty of sunny terraces on which to take in the dramatic scenery and enjoy afternoon drinks.

Downside? There's not a huge amount for more advanced skiers/snowboarders to get their teeth into. High winds and low cloud can sometimes hamper conditions.

Nearest airport: Turn (121km/90 minutes)
