Opinions sought on Zermaat-Cervinia : How does it compare

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 

on any dimension of your experience to Lech-Zurs, St. Anton, Whistler-Blackcomb, Alta, Snowbasin, Telluride, Breckenridge (altitude is comparable, right?) ? I just picked a few places to compare it to, but would like any views. Thinking hard about taking my son there since we have not been to Europe in a few years, so maybe it would be an interesting change. Please any insights are invited. Thanks

post #2 of 50



Ive been skiing in Lech, St Anton and Zermatt. A direct comparisson is difficult since it all depends on weather and conditions but I would say that you cannot go wrong with any of those 3 resorts. One significant difference between Zermatt and Lech is that in Lech the village is much closer to the ski region. You literally ski in the village while in Zermatt you need to take the cable car or train up the mountain, then walk and then take a cable car yet again before then finally an hour or more depending on crowds and what time you wake up in the morning, hitting the slopes. Deffinetly not a good place to have small children with you. Skiing is an all day event. In Lech you can quickly go back to the hotell for a nap at noon if you want to.


Zermatt is also a high altitude ski resort. High alpine region. You ski at 2000 - 3400 meters. In Lech its 1000 m lower. In Z you are closer to the sun but also more exposed to the wind and the cold. No trees. Radical scenery. The Matterhorn. When I was there last time 5y ago it was mid January and the weather was beautiful. Sun and no wind. It was warm. There was no crowds. We skied most of our time in Cervinia. Great carving slopes. We had a blast. The village is fun also. Just getting there is hard enough since no cars ar allowed. You need to go by train. Village is big but has a nice vibe to it. The cable cars give it a 007 feel. Its deffinetly a bit af an adventure. It never dumpped when I was there so I have no ide whats it like but I guess that you can ski powder on, or very close to the pist. If you take a guid I guess the terrain is endless. Everything is very expensive. In Cervinia everything is cheaper. If you are on a budet you live in Cervinia and then you ski in Zermatt. If you want to feel like on top of the world you live and ski in Zermatt.


I guess you have been to Lech and St Anton but not to Zermatt. This is a no brainer. Go to Zermatt. Im going to St Anton myself next week. I fly to Zurich and take the train or rent a car. If you go to Zermatt you fly to Geneva and take the train. You have to switch trains once but the trip is easy and doesent take long.

Zermatt and Cervinia for the most part ski like the two separate resorts they are, there's not a sense of them flowing together to form one massive ski area. Having said that, most of the big ski complexes in Europe are the same way. Lech-Zurs feels like a single resort, but if you didn't know it was close to St Anton you might never get over there. All these big European resorts are way bigger in terms of scale and vertical than anything in the States, though that's misleading, it doesn't really speak to the quality of the skiing or snow or challenge or anything like that. I've been to all the resorts on your list except Snowbasin, so if you give me a better idea what you're after maybe I can help. My own bias: I love St Anton. 

Zermatt is very charming if a bit stiff. There's plenty of good skiing there. It's easyish to get to and expensive, like most of Switzerland. Cervinia has wads of intermediate skiing and great snow. In a full week you can certainly ski a bit between them, but it can be a slog and connecting lifts are sometimes closed due to wind. I much prefer the village in Zermatt to Cervinia, though Cervinia's not bad. I'd make the case for going there based on how much Zermatt interests you, and treat Cervinia as gravy. Like I said above, I prefer St Anton, but I've skied a lot at Zermatt too and like it. 

post #4 of 50

i was in cervinia last year and skied in Zermatt daily from it... 


i stayed at an awesome hotel in Cervinia -  wouldn't hesitate about going back to it...


i really dont understand what you are asking from this thread???

post #5 of 50

You can certainly ski at Zermatt daily from Cervinia, but to get to, say, the Rothorn you need to cross town. If you want to ski at Schwarzsee, to me not the best sector at Zermatt, it's easier.

Thanks for the replies, and of course, do let me clarify. 

  1. We have skied Lech-Zurs but not St. Anton, it remains an option
  2. Zermaat was picked as our first choice - but not finalized yet since we have never skied Switzerland
  3. I was trying to get a feel how is Zermaat distinguishable from other places - so I picked a few we have skied.
  4. Thank you, the high altitude of Zermaat is food for thought. I did think of staying in Cervinia but it seems for not a lot more, in fact when one factors in lift tickets and ski schools, Cervinia and Zermaat are quite comparable, Zermaat schools are more expensive, but lift ticket works out cheaper, so Zermaat is slightly more expensive. 
  5. Cannot figure out what is a nice place to stay in Cervinia, some of the smaller lodges seem nice so ScottyMac, what is that 'awesome place', please do share.
  6. Since we would be traveling last week of March, 23 to 30 etc, Zermaat or the Arlberg are the most snow-sure in Europe, right.
  7. Again, the thought of "lines" and altitude is definitely a concern, since alpine, bad weather, and one is done, skiing is out for that day or period. Though, weather is hard to predict but suggestions have been made Zermaat-Cervinia very sunny (funny, when we were in ?Lech-Zurs, it was bluebird skies for 6 straight days! )
  8. Finally would appreciate any guidance - suggestion on ski schools in Zermaat, Cervinia, instructor friends or suggestions. 
  9. We have not decided yet, and your comments above have been helpful, very helpful. Please add, I trust I have clarified.

Prickly, more to your question, we are after non-stop skiing, easy lift access, of course memorable terrain. To give you a better idea, after having skied 4 Utah spots, SV in Albterta and WB in BC, and LZ in Austria, hands-down, WB was the best place for me. For my son it's a toss up between Alta and WB, I actually prefer Snowbasin to Alta, but that is besides the point. WB has such a variety of terrain, such long runs, and it is beautiful. And there has so much snow for past two years around Easter. Village access also was so easy. We are usually gone pretty early but 830 or so if not earlier, but because my son wants to ski with other kids, ski schools will matter. 


We look for intermediate cruisers to hard terrain (he does that more than me), but there you go, more color. In the end, we want to have a very nice time, at a reasonable cost. Europe is not cheap and the difference over a week between Austria, Swissyland and Italy does not seem to be that much...but on the ground facts could be different

Last thing, I forgot to ask, Val Gardena vs St Anton vs Zermaat-Cervinia, if you all will indulge, since one person locally suggested that. Thank you.

post #9 of 50

Val Gardena is a whole different ballgame. Lots of easy skiing, not very snowsure, tons of snowmaking, great scenary, not the easiest access. Not "serious" terrain, really, in my view, not like what you'd find at Chamonix or St Anton. 

For what you're after, you might want to consider Les Trois Vallees or the Espace Killy.

Get yourself a copy of Where to Ski and Snowboard, it's the only way to make sense of it all.

Touche, do have a copy of WTSS, but it was based on recommendations here from you, Nobody and epic and others, in 09 we went for our memorable trip to LZ in Austria, so am going through that process again, as the counsel given was very valuable. LZ was hands down unusually beautiful like Sunshine Village in Alberta (went there as a rank beginner in 08). Am a better skier now, though the idea of long cruisers holds much appeal to this 50 year old physique!

post #11 of 50

Sections on France might interest you then. If not, you won't go wrong with Zermatt, it's a cool place. 

post #12 of 50

Obviously you have many options. Too many. IMO you should only consider St Anton and Zermatt. They are great ski resorts and at one time or annother you want to visit them both. So I would in your place just start looking for accommodation at both resorts and then deside upon the Hotell, price/location. Im going to St Anton each year at the moment because I have found accommodation with price/location hard to beat. Its not pulic though, sorry.

post #13 of 50

That's not bad advice. 

post #14 of 50

I'd recommend Val d'Isere based on the snow conditions in late March, the wide variety of terrain (combined with Tignes), and the village. It's right up there with St. Anton in my book, though I usually recommend St. Anton to those who haven't been to the Arlberg area due to the convenience and beauty of the train ride from Zurich.


Val d'Isere and Tignes will have everything from easy greens, cruisy blues, steep groomers, easy access off piste, and crazy scare-the-crap-out-of-you off piste. It's good stuff.

post #15 of 50

Thanks for the advice. Picked Zermatt, last week of March. All booked, now let's hope good snow, good health and everything else falls into place. Staying at a small hotel recommended by an acquaintance called BelleRive, folks there seem very helpful. 


Web blog suggests best time to ski Zermatt is late March, to mid-April, accurate, well, we certainly hope so! Any observations ... do respond

post #16 of 50
Like others have said, you can't go wrong with either choice of Zermatt or Lech/St Anton. I prefer the off-piste in the Arlberg to Zermatt, but there's tons of off-piste in Zermatt, just very different topography between the two. You can check my ski trip report for Zermatt in Trip Reports forum. Was there over Christmas week. The village is nice. Lots of shops and restaruants, and cafe's to check out. On mtn restaraunts are good too. We never made it to Cervinia our 9 days there. So if you happen to get a nice stretch of sunny and calm weather you will have no issues exploring the Italian side. We experienced all types of weather from bluebird to freezing, windy, whiteout conditions. Even had a warm bluebird day on Christmas day. Only day it was crowded was on a Sunday when the upper mtn was closed due to high winds. If you get up early and catch the lifts at the base, you shouldn't have issues with crowds, unless there is some holiday going on the last week of March. We did ski all 3 areas of Zermatt in one day with no issues. Started out on Schwarzsee, got really windy, and skied down to Furri, had lunch, then took the Riffelberg gondola up to Riffelberg, did a few runs there but it was a bit crowded. Then skied down to Gant, hopped the gondola up to Rothorn. Skied for about an hour, and then called it a day. Decided to take the Sunnegga funicular to the base, instead of skiing down, which I also recommend you do, as there are a few nice alpine huts to hit for apre. Enjoy.

Thanks T-man, TR is very cool and very helpful. Got tickets and hotel booking but trip up in the air still. Will know in next week or so. 

post #18 of 50

I think this hard to compare because Zermatt/Cervinia is so massive. If you like extraordinarily long runs and the world's best scenery then Zermatt/Cervinia is hard to beat. But... Zermatt/Cervinia is really a place for the beginner to intermediate if we are talking groomed terrain. For all its runs there are really only 2 or 3 runs I really like in Zermatt. But they are my favourite runs found anywhere and justify the trip. The Furg chairlift found at 2400m that dog legs up to the "#18 runs" and run #17 is superbe end of story. Could ski that all day. Run 1a off Blauherd is the best run in the place for my money. The blacks off Stockhorn I didn't get to but skied the reds which were all very average at best. The Gornergrat area seems to me for sight seeing and beginner skiing. If one is a beginner to intermediate skier/boarder then Zermatt is the best place anywhere. Cervinia is also an intermediate terrain location but the snow is usually fabulous if sunny and th runs very long like ventina and the 10k down to Valtournenche. I would stay in Valtournenche. Beautiful stone chalet village with good gondola up to the great skiing. The litlle hamlet of cahois is now skiable on the Zermatt/Cervinia pass and that has some good off piste. Next time I go I think I'll join the Ski Club of Great Britain so I can ski with one of their reps.

Excellent suggestions, we made it to Zermatt.  just a quick note to Thank all who offered counsel. We had one bluebird day, rest were all snowy, with conditions ranging from whiteout to foggy, misty and then one could ski in blazing sun, hit fog level, and then regain visibility descending below fog level! We skied 6 days straight and did almost every single run except for some of the routes (Conditions were not amenable on days we tried, though my boy did Rote Nase and Stockhorn) on all three areas of Sunegga, Gornegrat, and Matterhorn, and did a bunch in Cervinia and went halfway down to Valtourneche to Salette.


One key distinguishing feature of Zermatt vs North American resorts, they have these huge "bowls" there too but all out of bounds, not avy-controlled, and definitely the snow not as dry as Utah or WB in BC for that matter. But the runs are beautifully long thigh-burners, and the vertical is serious. And picturesque, pretty incredible. Just a few pictures for anyone who wants an idea : (We had a blast on the snow, early morning till almost close of lifts). Personally, I loved the runs on the backside of Rothorn, and the Cervinia runs were great too. Some steep groomers, but in general, runs did not have the "fear factor" which I felt when standing over the Sapphire chutes in Blackcomb or entering Whistler or West Bowl etc. Problem is their glaciers seem to be crevasse-orama! so one is forced to stay off this beautiful off-piste terrain. They have a ton of scary terrain, real high and real scary, when one factors in the avalanche risk and sheer vertical but it is all off-piste and almost always not patrolled!


Though be warned, you have to walk pretty long distances in your ski boots to get to the bus, and the base lifts and also when descending if skiing down! No way around the fact that the Swiss love to walk in skiboots after a day of hard skiing or first thing in the morning :-0 . Other facts, Swiss love hash-browns (called Rosti, go figure that one) and boy do they pile them on a plate! Lovely on mountain restaurants, both in Swissy and Italia, with live music in one called Fluhalp off Rothorn. Italian restaurants would say better food and I think given my fading memory (with age), food in Lech-Zur far superior to Zermatt and significantly less expensive! Zermatt is a beautiful town, more quaint than Lech Zurs for sure, and old Zermatt homes perched on stone ledge-like supports are rally a sight to behold, and no place in the Americas like Zermatt for sure. Bars can get loud though, and place is very popular with Germans, Scandinavians and of course a lot of folks of Russian origin and residence there now in force! Just a few demographic observations there. Almost no one of color save for myself and another few folks of Indian origin who were sightseeing not skiing! Just a very cool place and the Swiss Ski School is very good actually, my boy had a better time here than in ski school at WB. 


We stayed at a lovely hotel called the Bellerive run by this young couple, Mario Noti and his significant other, Katja, they were superb hosts. Interestingly from a pure cost point of view, Zermatt ran to almost the same cost as WB, except airfare since I did not use miles this time( and got crappy expensive coach tickets and United put us on one of it's oldest planes, you could see stress-fatigue ridges, grooves, fissures and what-not on the wing of this barely airworthy Boeing 767 and most electronics on the seat did not work, and the cabin rew seemed highly UN-trained for international aviation though they tried real hard! Good pilot, he got us there on this jalopy of an airplane!) The reason for costs evening out with Americas is Hotel Bellerive included my 6 day international ski pass, my boy was free (for all kids born 2003 or after), and the ski rentals for the week in the tariff plus free breakfast every day, one dinner included though one could buy half-board at will for dinner at CHF35 at a nice restaurant attached to the hotel. So the real cost to a family is ski school, group lessons and private instructor (but compare, WB private is I think 750 USD, here it ran to 414 USD) but much cheaper than the big mountain resorts here stateside; so that is where things even out. Food is costly and the shocker, in Zermatt, no "free" water on the mountain, a bit ridiculous since the hotel notes pointedly mountain spring water in their taps is fit for drinking but on-mountain get ready to pay CHF 5 for a bottle or glass of water! That was really a bit over the top. And taxis are fixed price CHF 12 Franc to almost anywhere in Zermatt.  


For very long, and serious in-bounds vertical access, hard to beat Zermatt & Breuil-Cervinia. People I was made to understand come for the Sun, we came for the snow and got so much of it!


This is the Matterhorn "rear-end" view from the Italian side, i.e. Breuil-Cervinia side(Italy)


The glacier behind Rothorn or is it the Monte Rosa plateau glacier..am not sure off the top:(Switzerland)



With Plateau Rosa/Testa Grigio behind the spiking peak,  I think?!, in the middle(Italy),

If anyone else finds this thread I can reccomend the  Hotel Excelsior Planet in Cervinia. The lifts are across the road. Ask for a room with a view of the Materhorn.


When we went prices were negotiable. Some who had booked well ahead paid 5 times the price we paid. Booked on friday arrived Sat.

post #21 of 50

If you want to just ski cruisers serviced by fabulous lifts with stops at to-die-for outdoor food Zermatt/Cervinia is in a league by itself. Word of warning: it is at best intermediate terrain. Families? Perfect. Beginners? Perfect. People that just love to cruise on the longest runs anywhere and be in the world's greatest alpine environment? Beyond perfect. I think it is better to stay on the Italian side and venture over to Zermatt. Gornergrat is a waste of time. Trockener Steg to Furgg is my favourite location. Run #8 Patullarve to Blauherd is my favourite run in Zermatt. Followed by the Italian side runs off Cime Bianche down to Cervinia and Valtournneche. What a place this is and if it is sunny cannot be trumped.

Here is video of our trip. It is all on-piste, and is around 6 minutes long, but I think it gives an idea of the scale and grandeur of the landscape. Rest is just a kid ripping it up and just having fun, cruising on very, very long runs. Even the tow rope was long, I thought almost 2 miles but that is a guess, if not more. It is a father-son trip, so please do keep that in mind...son can ski, father tags along trying hard. And for many reasons, this could be the last long trip in a while, but one will have to see, hence it has sentimental value for sure

Looks like DustyJr had a great time too! 

post #24 of 50

Nice video. Great little skier leading the way as well. Hope there are many more miles yet to ski with him! Looks like 3 different climates at those different altitudes. The last time I was there the thing that I noticed was how powerful the sun was off the snow. Above 6,000 feet the air gets very clear on a sunny day and the hard blue of the sky against the bright white of the peak ridges make you see our atmosphere in a different way. The air at the top of Klein Matterhorn at 3900m makes for a tough stair climb. My hat goes off to climbers setting up base camp for Everest at 5000m. It is amazing to think you are still 1000m below Everest base camp because at 3900m I was gasping for air something that doesn't happen at the 2900m Trockener Steg.

Now included in the Zermatt/Cervinia/Valtournenche pass is the smaller alpine station of Chamois. Well worth a stay as it is without cars. http://www.chamoisimpianti.it/

post #26 of 50

Nice report dusty! It's great to see your son getting better. I still remember your video from Sunshine Village I think a few years ago when he was real young.

How did you cope with the foggy/white out conditions? Were there enough trees around for visibility at those times or did you just get used to it or not ski?

Currently there is a discussion on where to have an epic gathering in Europe and that issue has come up for those traveling from North America.

post #27 of 50
Thread Starter 

Thanks Tog, OK, and TC, hope he had fun, hopefully these videos will remind him long thereafter.


To answer your question, we had one totally bluebird day, first day was fog, whiteout, snow, and then every other day day was snow, sun, fog, whiteout, snow, sun and sometimes it was great high up and then totally blind. But we skied, never stopped skiing. Tree areas were used a bit more on a couple of the days but we skied in absolute whiteout conditions for the first time in Rothorn, you are skiing in between two high ridges/massifs, and orange poles pointed the way down, we kept them on our left. 


We never stopped skiing. Thinking about it, we have as yet since I took him on his first vacation in my first season of skiing( i.e. I put on skis first time Feb 08) to Sunshine Village in April 08(Tog, you have a fine memory!), we have never NOT skied because of the weather, on our trips. 


He actually skied the hardest inbound routes on Stockhorn and Rote-Nase, told me they were huge moguls, steep and icy - I  never got the chance, probably a good thing.


We drank lots of water, and other than first two nights (he slept till 1am first night, woke up, I attribute that to jet-lag, door to door was 17 hours! from NYC, and 13 hours the next night), we were fine. 


One observation, if you can fly there cheap, skiing is cheaper in Switzerland than in WB for sure, lessons are much cheaper, group, kids, lift-tickets, and privates, and rentals. Only issue is food but with breakfast included and if you get half-board, it is cheaper, no question. I am talking about staying at a normal hotel, we stayed in a what they label 3*, very comfortable and nice.


Biggest negative of Zermatt : Too much walking distance between lodging and lifts in ski boots, it is ridiculous, and buses are nice but with kids or for folks not used to it, it is pretty insane but the Swiss love walking.At the end of the day, it is brutal, and the traverses to the lifts are not fun, knees and thighs die by the time you get to take off your skis. Cervinia seemed a lot more convenient but it is a lot further away to get to from NYC, and Valtourneche seemed like a real nice town visually also. But skiing, no kidding was cheaper in Zermatt, the lift tickets were less and my son skied free. Food for thought. Surprising to some maybe. Italy food seemed better (we ate there on mountain once, and lodging seems less expensive but not by a whole lot). Again I am talking about a family in a hotel, not a clan in a apartment or a bunch of young turks-male and female in a shared house. FYI.


Last thing: As my boy noted, and he is quite precise in spatial analyses, gifted perhaps, there are "more" runs in WB, well, that is because, all the bowls in Whistler create a huge variety of terrain and runs, no question, you, Harmony, Symphony, Whistler bowl, west bowl, bagel bowl, everything around cirque, pakalolo etc. and Blackcomb glacier by itself is huge, and all the terrain off of and below spanky's ladder. He was spot on. All this is available in Zermatt but out-of-bounds and a lot of it, you can tell is crevassed, other beautiful visible terrain there is on the Monte Rosa plateau but that is heli-territory, not lift-served. And a lot of the glacier off the Matterhorn paradise, looks great but every instructor warned, highly crevassed and site of many injuries every season, plus the snow covers rocks everywhere. Additionally, we got snow almost every day, but snow in Utah and WB from our experience drier, and lighter, it is wetter snow in the Alps, and crust forms quick up high, what looks like powder can get crusty quick. Just a spectacularly picturesque place with very long runs, huge vertical you cannot find in North American and ripping those, rips your thighs but generally on-piste experience mostly ok, for most of the public, that includes me by the way. Lovely place, just gave you guys a comparison.


My impressions, please take it as information, not criticism of any sort. We were treated real well, loved the instructors, and really nice people at the Hotel Bellerive, Restaurant Avena, Old Zermatt, and do not miss Stefanie's Creperie in town, she used to live in WB 25 years ago and is a class act lady with kids.

It is hard to compare Western NA to Europe. There is so much more of a culture of skiing trees in NA. I love Utah. It is great in own right. Snowbird vertical 3200'. Awesome 3200' BTW. Alta (no boarders - boo!) 2000'. Revelstoke 5400' and WB about 4500-5200'. Brit skiers seem to like Canada more than Europe these days maybe it is the language thing who knows. Zermatt 7200' vertical. If sunny it is incredible. Oh very important point. Those pizza slabs of stone supporting the old Walser buildings is put there so rats and mice can't enter the dwelling. Italian side is superior in my humble.

Now, this is what I keep trying to tell all my yank friends stuck stateside!  And most likely you skied the most expensive place in Europe!


Just about every other place in Europe is going to be cheaper than Zermatt, making skiing Europe a bargain IMO.


Normally, I'm paying about 400 euro a week per person, for ski pass, ski lessons, lodging and food in a self catered apartment, bring most evening meals prepared and ready to pop in the oven.  We don't rent equipment, because we have that too, and actually, the kids are taking lessons reguarly because they've taken all there is to take, but sometimes to a freeride or competition course.  Take that out, and I'm spending 300 a week per person, all in, ex transportation.  It's a deal!


I have to think long and hard before I'll take my kids to Snowbird, real long and hard, it's gonna cost me!


Great trip report by the way.

That's amazing! I did have a friend who went to Chamonix recently. With his Psia discount, I think the daily lift ticket was $40 at the window.  That's unheard of in the States pretty much, though you can get packages which make it vastly less expensive.


Airfares this spring going out west were very expensive. From New York, I was looking at 7-800$ roundtrip to go to Reno,NV or Bozeman, MT.  Salt Lake was like $650. Right now it's much cheaper.
