Breuil-Cervinia, (2050 m), a modern tourist resort at the foot of the
Matterhorn, hosts an impressive ski area, offering 150 km of runs linking up
with the Valtournenche for a total of 24 lifts, plus a cross-border connection
with Zermatt, thanks to the Cime Bianche Laghi – Plateau Rosà cableway
and the Bontadini chairlift, adding up to a grand total of 360 km of runs.
From Plateau Rosà you can either go down towards Zermatt, or take the
Ventina run: 11 km downhill from the 3480 m altitude of the beginning of the
run to the 2050 m of Cervinia. The Cime Bianche Laghi area (the pick-up
point of the cableway for Plateau Rosà) offers a further selection of
fantastic downhill runs served by the Goillet chairlift, which provides access
to the Valtournenche ski area.
For skiers who like to take it easy, Plan Maison boasts a number of
convenient lift facilities (including the covered four-seater chairlifts fitted
with wind shields of Plan Maison, Fornet and Bontadini) serving ski runs –
some of them also connected to Plateau Rosà – for all levels and all tastes.
