Cervinia lies at 2,006 m (6,581 ft) above sea level, at the foot of the Matterhorn (in Italian, Monte Cervino; in French, Mont Cervin), in a valley surrounded by high, glaciated mountains and the sheer rock face of the Jumeaux. It shares a ski area with Zermatt in Switzerland, connected through the Plateau Rosa glacier. Some of the runs are very long, the longest stretches 22 km from the Klein Matterhorn (in French, Petit Cervin) in Switzerland down to Valtournenche in Italy.
