Ski area Via Lattea

Via Lattea in short

  • Nearly 400km of slopes
  • Skiing in Italy and France
  • High altitude skiing
  • More than 400 kilometers of slopes

With nearly 400km of runs in the Via Lattea (Milky Way) ski area, it goes without saying that the ski slopes are extremely varied. The most popular ski resort in this area is Sestrières, which gained international renown in 1997 when it hosted the World Cup Ski Races and was then selected to host the 2006 Winter Olympics! There is, however, a great choice of ski resorts in this area with something for everyone from the quiet village atmosphere in San Sicario to the rather rowdy nightlife in Sauze d'Oulx. Altitudes vary enormously too with the lowest resort at 1350m and Sestriere which is at an amazing 2035m!

The Via Lattea (or Milky Way) ski area which includes Sestrière, Sauze d'Oulx, Cesana, Claviere and Sansicario, is the largest in Italy and among the largest in Europe and offer something for everyone from beginners to expert skiers and from snowboarders to the younger members of the family. It must be said, however, that with over half of the slopes being red runs, intermediate skiers are the kings of the mountain here. The ski lifts interconnect all ski slopes so perfectly that the shuttle service is never full! From November to May snow cover is assured thanks to both the high altitudes and one of the world's most extensive and efficient snow making systems which includes 900 snow cannons!
