It is absolutely true that in Cervinia you can ski all year round: in fact, the end of the summer season was only on 10th September but, from today everything is already prepared for the reopening of the ski lifts and for the start of the autumn -winter season.On two upcoming weekends – 14th-15th and 21st-22nd October there'll be brief tasters when you can put your skis back on and sample the slopes of the Breuil-Cervinia circuit. However, the official opening of the lifts is scheduled for 28 October, from when there’ll be access to some of the most beautiful slopes in Europe every day until 6th May 2018.This is all possible mainly due to the Plateau Rosà ski area, which at 3,480 metres already has ample snow cover in early autumn.But other parts of the area are very similar, too, with an average altitude of 2,050 metres.This is a real paradise for skiers and, of course, it’s at its best at this time of year.Only Cervinia has 46 pistes (totalling 150 km), mainly of medium and low difficulty, so ones that are suitable for the whole family.For snowboarders there's also the Indian at Plan Maison, one of the longest snow park pistes in Italy, with rails and kickers for every level of riding. It has also got an area especially for children and beginners.Finally, for cross-country enthusiasts there are 3 km of pistes, starting right at the entrance to the village.Cervinia is also a popular tourist attraction boasting modern, super-comfortable hotels and plenty of 'apres ski' options. Why not try shopping on the renowned Carrell Street, or a visit to a local museum visits? And, of course, there are dinners out and the great local 'aperitifs' with their tasty, traditional snacks included.
