The resort is located on the southern side of the Matterhorn on the other side of Zermatt. Together they share the highest marked ski area in Europe. Cervinia opened at the end of October. The snow base depth is 37”. More snow is expected in the next 3-4 days. Three of the 15 lifts are currently open. The resort and the car-free village nearby offer many non-ski related activities as well.
