Cervinia is known for its abundance of long cruising runs, the most notable of which stretches for 22km from the Klein Matterhorn. The resort also offers some après ski and is located at 2050m. The atmosphere is particularly lively at weekends when Italian day trippers come up the mountain to the resort.
Cervinia has many bars and restaurants, very popular with the local Italians especially at weekends. The resort also boasts a natural ice rink, bowling alley, cinema, a sports centre and a wealth of shops and restaurants.
