The ski resort of Breuil-Cervinia is situated in a wide basin at the bottom of the Valtournenche, at an altitude of 2,000 m at the foot of the Matterhorn (4,478 m), the Twins and the Dent d'Hérens (4,171 m). Famous as much for the famous pyramidal peak of the Matterhorn, the "perfect mountain" that is drawn freehand at school, as for its long cable cars that take you up to the glaciers and allow you to ski all year round, it was created in the 1930s, and its name means "swamp of altitude" in patois. Its ski area, linked to those of Valtournenche and Zermatt in Switzerland, offers a total of 250 km of transnational runs, which reach an altitude of 3,900 metres (the highest in the world!) and offer mostly easy routes suitable for all skiers. The ascent to the Plateau Rosa (from the patois rouèze - ice - just like the Mont-Rose, at 3,480 m.) via three cable cars from Breuil, can also be done by non-skiers, who will also be able to enjoy a breathtaking panorama. Soon, a new cable link will lead to the summit of the Little Matterhorn at 3,872 metres and the highest panoramic terrace in Europe, surrounded by more than half of the "4000" of the Alps.
