Our view on Cervinia ski holidays
We think Cervinia is a world class all year round ski resort with excellent facilities on and off the slopes in winter or summer and also a great resort for family ski holidays.
The only downside is the havoc the high winds can play at the top especially after a fresh snowfall - the lifts often close which does limit the scope of where you can ski. Having said that, the high winds normally occur very early in the season...
