To make your search easy for your next winter holiday, we have put together a list of some of the best skiing resorts in Italy for snow reliability.


This is one Italian skiing resort where you are guaranteed snow reliability even during the drier Italian winter months. Cervinia is snow sure from December through to the end of April.

In addition, the main runs have good grooming and snowmaking facilities to make sure the place is always in a condition to allow skiers enjoy their preferred winter sport.

It is a high-altitude resort with excellent long runs and linked to Zermatt in Switzerland by lifts – and this international route covers a total of 360km.

Before the 1930s, the resort had a Swiss-German-sounding name and was known as Breuil until Benito Mussolini decreed for it to be changed and called its more Italian name that is presently now Cervinia.

Despite the fact that most Italian ski resorts have spectacular scenery, Cervina has a contrasting and unflattering view especially when looked at from the Italian side peak.

Its rather ugly architecture makes it look even more unpleasant, but its slopes offer an outstanding playground made possible by the easy gradient of its seemingly endless runs. As a result, beginners and intermediates that are still shaky are quick to gain colossal confidence in this all-encompassing high-mountain terrain.
