The area of Valtournenche has its peak at 3,200m and goes down to Ventina Gletjeren at 1.600m. It connects to Creuil-Cervinia and Zermatt in a modern and efficient ski area with slopes for all levels of difficulty. Throughout Valtournenche runs one of the most famous slopes Reine Blanche, which goes down from the Klein Matterhorn on 3.883m height and runs for 20km down to a difference in altitude of 2.300m.
The area facilitates a small and a large ski area. You should be aware that the downhill to Valtournanche is situated on the south-facing sides, where the snow melts quickly and the lower slopes are not always open. This means it could be possible that one has to take the lift for the last part down.
Ski buses operate throughout the day between Valtournanche and Breuil-Cervinia, so you can start and finish both places without problems. A few years ago a new lift in Valtournanche was placed, with large capacity, what avoids the long queues the morning. There are restaurants, pizzerias, cafes, bars, shops, ski shops ski schools. The area is snow-secured, as Breuil-Cervinia is set quite high.
