Winter Activities

Sauze d’Oulx, together with San Sicario, Sestriere, Claviere, Cesana and the French resort of Montgenevre, forms part of the Milky Way, one of the most popular Italian ski areas. There are more than 400 km of connected pistes, 120 of which have snowmaking facilities, 88 ski-lifts running from 1350m to 2800m, giving access to gentle forest trails and high mountain skiing. In the mountains there is a great choice of bars and restaurants for that lunchtime break in the sunshine.

The slopes provide facilities for a wide range of skiing abilities from beginner to expert. Added to this there are two snow parks with jumps and rails for snowboarders to perfect their tricks. There are three different ski schools with expertise in teaching alpine skiing, carving techniques and snowboarding. Good English is spoken by the instructors.

During the Winter Olympic Games in February 2006, Sauze d’Oulx successfully hosted the Freestyle events.
