CERVINIA TRIP REPORT

Cervinia, Italy

Trip Leader: Gerit L.

 

We just returned from or trip to Breuil-Cervinia/ Italy, located in the Aosta Valley on the south slope of the Alps. To the north beyond the border in Switzerland is the legendary village of Zermatt.

 

The trip promised an all-inclusive adventure. Our group was not disappointed. After an overnight flight on Emirate Airlines we landed in Milan Italy. The distance to Cervinia is only 150 km and the ride did not last too long. We were welcomed by the personnel of Club Med with Prosecco and snacks, which held us over the time it took us to get into our rooms. We started our routine with a wonderful buffet, with a variety unseen (not to forget the free drinks during all hours of the day and at meals). The lift passes were distributed (included in the trip price) allowing us to ski between Italy and Switzerland for the next 6 days.

 

The next morning, after our breakfast buffet (which included anything and everything you could imagine), we went to meet our Ski Instructor who stayed with the group for the next 5 days
