At the foot of Matterhorn, Cervinia has a charming town center and plenty of things to do once you’re off the slopes. Le Samovar Guest House, pictured, has a cozy café with beautiful views of the Marmore river.
After spending a day learning to snowboard or traversing the slopes at Killington Resort, snow bunnies head into town for the aprés-ski scene—one popular spot is The Wobbly Barn, pictured.
The slopes here may be challenging, but the post-ski scene is casual. You can sample Colorado beers and listen to live music at Slopeside Grill, the area’s most popular haunt. For an upscale dinner, try the seasonal fare at Bistro C.V.
