In Sestriere, skiing enthusiasts of all levels can indulge in their passion. Right near the town, there are easy blue slopes for beginners. At the top of the same mountain and in the nearby area of Borgata, there are black slopes both on and off-piste to satisfy the most advanced skiers.

However, if you take the gondola from Sestriere on the other side, a true paradise awaits experienced skiers and those who crave off-piste adventures. There are plenty of red slopes in the area connecting Sestriere and Sauze d’Oulx.

For example, there are numerous red slopes north of Sansicario, where the slopes wind in and out of the trees. Finally, plenty of off-piste opportunities if you take the gondola up. There are over 1000 kilometres of off-piste terrain in the area.

Via Lattea spans a vast geographical area accessible without removing your skis. In the heart of the site lies Sestriere at an elevation of 2035 meters, and Via Lattea is one of Europe’s largest ski resorts.

With a ski pass for the area, you can cross the border between Italy and France for a day. To the west of Sestriere lies the charming French town of Montgenèvre. The town offers varied skiing and a good lift system.
The southern part of the ski area near Montgenèvre has wide blue and red slopes with excellent carving potential. The area is characterized by its stunning location in a valley. It is possible to ski to Montgenèvre, but it takes about 2.5 hours from Sestriere – one way. Therefore, taking a taxi at least one way to have a great day of skiing without too much transport is advantageous. Don’t forget your passport.

However, there are also activities in Sestriere that don’t involve carving skis. You can, for instance, go snowmobiling or dog-sledging in the mountains and forests of the area. Experienced skiers over 12 years old can go heliskiing in the off-piste terrain if you’re seeking an adrenaline rush. Sestriere also has a swimming pool with a pool filled with 29-30 degrees Celsius warm water, perfect for relaxing tired legs. Alternatively, you can go ice skating.
