Cervinia is Italys most snow-sure resort and boasts a long season that stretches from October to May, with its glacier skiable in the summer months as well. Known for its high-altitude slopes, silky snow and Matterhorn views, Cervinia mixes an authentic Italian atmosphere with varied skiing and snowboarding.


Located in the Valle dAosta, in the northwest region of Italy, Cervinia is connected to Zermatt in Switzerland. The collective ski area is colossal with more than 350km of slopes spread across a sea of jagged peaks.


The long, mellow runs and high-alpine views of Cervinia are hard to beat, including an 8km red run that descends 1,800m from the Plateau Rosa. The combination with Zermatt gives access to series of steeper and more challenging pitches, perfect for an extra dose of adrenaline.


The resort village is situated at 2,050m, based around a car-free cobblestoned main street. Theres a relaxed atmosphere in the town with a great selection of local bars and restaurants. Après and live music options are good without being overly rowdy, starting on the slope terraces by mid-afternoon.


This camp is designed with a simple aim: work on the fundamentals and build on your technical prowess. Using the magnificent terrain of Cervinia and Zermatt, we’ll develop your technique as we get miles into your legs. The focus is on personal development, with technique tips to boost your balance, edging, timing, and speed in the fall line.


Each day is spent in small, sociable groups of up to six, matched by ability via a survey we use before you arrive. Coaching features drills and guided mileage, followed by video analysis in the evenings to reflect on the days progress. Youll meet the group in the morning before a full day on the slopes, with a break for lunch to rest and refuel.


You'll stay in the central Hotel Mignon at the base of of the mountain. A traditional mountain chalet with super comfortable rooms, a restaurant serving traditional Italian home cooking and a finely stocked cellar, the perfect place to reflect on a great day of riding. Once we have filled Hotel Mignon, we will use the equally charming Hotel Miravidi.

Typical Day Here's what a typical day in Cervinia will involve...
Draw the curtains to the sun rising on the Matterhorn. Retrieve jaw from floor and get ready for another day of fun and progression.
Fuel up on a delicious Italian breakfast before grabbing a coffee for the gondola ride to the peak. Your coach will explain the plan for the day. Step out onto the crisp snow and clip in…
After a fun warm-up lap we’ll ride Cervinia’s glorious groomers while focusing on the fundamental snowboarding skills to ensure you’re in prime position for the season ahead.
After lunch in a mountain restaurant we either head over the Italian-Swiss border into Zermatt or to the steeper slopes of Valtournenche.
The progression continues and with small groups, the coaching is very tailored to your individual needs and is supported by plenty of video footage.
De-brief (over tea and cake) with your coach back at the hotel viewing video footage and discussing lessons learnt and the focus for tomorrow.
Over a well-earned glass of Italian wine and a delicious plate of fresh pasta we swap stories on the day’s adventures. The town is enjoyably crowd free so it’s easy to enjoy meeting friendly locals.

Will the snow be good during the early-season / spring? +

We can never 'guarantee' snow, however historically Cervinia has proved to have reliable snow conditions both during the early season and spring months, thanks to its high-altitude slopes, as well as its glacier access - which is skiable all year round.


Beyond this, our coaches are highly skilled at utilising the terrain they have open to them to accomplish the objectives - and we have the option to ski on the glacier if snow coverage within the resort is variable.

Where do I need to fly to and what flight do I need to get? +

We will release flight & transfer information a bit nearer to the time of your trip. Over the last few years, BA and EasyJet have both made multiple changes to the flight schedules that we've based our plans around so we've decided that it's sensible to wait a while before booking flights.
