Home to many events of the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics, Via Lattea straddles the French-Italian border and spans five distinct resorts. Take your choice of 88 lifts to ski the 400 km (250 mi) of trails. You will find areas for all levels, though each resort has a different selection. Claviere is most suited to the intermediate skier, while Sestriere has some longer black runs and provides more options for the advanced. Montgenèvre is probably the best for beginners, though you can check out the resorts online to find which suits you best. Take the free buses that connect the resorts: often the lift connections are slower. For Via Lattea and beyond, use our Sauze d'Oulx road trip planner to get the most from your Sauze d'Oulx vacation.

Excellent skiing and skiing, especially if you have 7 sunny days at - 10 C. Unfortunately I did not have legs ready, or maybe 20 years less for Montgenevre. The tracks and slopes are well prepared and not boring. For each recommendation, there is no way you Will regret it.
A bit expensive, but definitely worth it!
