Location and surroundings

Sauze d'Oulx

Sauze d'Oulx has 400 km of piste and is a stylish resort with plenty of red runs. Most of these runs are on the sunny side of the village. The red runs are suitable for intermediate skiers and there are blue runs for the beginners. If you are looking for a challenge, you can head to the connected slopes of Sestriere Mountain Motta and Mount Sises where you will find black runs. There are some wonderful mountain après-Ski bars which you can enjoy the sunshine before heading back to the town, at your own pace.

La Via Lattea

La Via Lattea ski area consists of the towns of Sestriere, Sauze d'Oulx, San Sicario, Cesane and Claviere. This ski area is also known as the 'Milky Way'. With 400km of slopes, it is the largest connected ski area in Italy. It is right on the border between Italy and France, and its highest point, Mont Motta, is 2823 metres above sea level. Overall, it is a very diverse ski area, with numerous slopes running through forests.

 

If you book a holiday in Sestriere, you will get a ski lift pass that will give you access to 1 day of skiing in Alpe d'Huez, Les Deux Alpes, Serre Chevalier, and Puy St. Vincent, and 1 day of skiing in the Montgenèvre ski area. Your hands-free ski lift pass will detect which ski area you are in so you will not need to worry about a thing! Take advantage of the access to these extra areas and get the most out of your lift pass! Its large variety of slopes makes this area ideal for both beginners and experienced skiers. There are 89 ski lifts in total there, so it will be easy to get around without catching a ski bus.
