Come and ski at 1,650 meters in one of the highest resort in the Alps: Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche. This world-famous ski resort offers 150 km of marked tracks, some of which overlooking Zermatt, Switzerland. Here you will find 20 mountain restaurants, a huge area for off-tracks and views to take your breath away. For after skiing you just have to choose between sports: heli-skiing, ice skating (natural), indoor pools, paragliding, mountain climbing, horse riding, sauna, gym ... and culture. If you choose this option, take a bus to Aosta and visit the Roman ruins. The camera will be particularly useful during your Italian vacation in Valtournenche!
The tourism of Valtournenche is particularly related to winter sports, especially skiing. The village of Breuil-Cervinia is one of the main tourist areas in the Alps, thanks to its magnificent view of the Matterhorn mountain and its renowned ski area, which also allow the connection with the famous Swiss resort of Zermatt and the glacier of Plateau Rosa (area of the Matterhorn Ski Paradise).
The ski resort of Valtournenche also became a convenient access point to the ski lift of Cervinia and Zermatt.
In the nineties the decrease of presence due to a diminution of the snowfall and ski lift now too old, caused a change in the management of the station. The Company Cime Bianche became, in fact, a public company, and this allowed the station to modernize. In 1997, the 4-seater gondola Valtournenche-Salette was replaced by a modern cable car to 12 seats. Later, the first systems of artificial snow was realized. In 2006 most of the old lifts were dismantled to make way for modern chairlifts Motta, Du Col and Bec Carré. It was also enhanced the artificial snow system, which in 2008 was expanded also to Gran Pista, allowing return skis in Valtournenche in case of poor snow conditions.
For the future, the goal is to keep on improving the tourist offer, making year-on-year important interventions both on the tracks and on the ski lifts.
