Italy's Cervinia ski resort, in the north west of the country, has announced it will open for glacier skiing for 10 weeks from 30th June to 9th September this year.
Summer skiers and boarders will be able to ski on the glacier of Plateau Rosà with access using the resort's newly opened cable car, and also enjoy the unique panorama from the viewing platform at the arrival station of the Plateau Rosà cable car and take a visit to the highest museum in Europe, dubbed "A Mountain of Work."
The new Plateau Rosà cable car with its futuristic design offers improved comfort, and better views through the maxi windows.
With summer skiing also possible from Zermatt on the Swiss side of the border (year round), and from mid-July in neighbouring Saas Fee (joint summer ski pass available with Zermatt) it's possible to summer ski and board the three resorts between mid July and early September.
The resorts also offer mountain bike excursions and downhill runs, uphills facilitated by the lifts so as not to take away from all your fun...
The first ascent for skiers each morning will be at 7.15am with the last return descent from Plateau Rosà at 3.45pm daily. The last lift from Cervinia for those based in Zermatt and returning over is at noon, because lifts on the Swiss side run from 7.40am to 1pm a with the slopes closing at 1.30pm, after which the snow is usually too wet. Adult tickets are 31 Euros for one day, 98 Euros for 6 day, with children half price.
