Sauze d’Oulx is part of Italy’s Via Lattea ski area, better known as the Milky Way. Think hundreds of kilometres of milky smooth pistes, from high alpine runs with panoramic views in every direction, to forested descents leading to sun-kissed terraces, mountain restaurants (there are over 30) and lower down, some great bars and nightlife.
This is a resort that’s ideal for intermediate skiers looking to explore. The modern lift system connects with Sestriere and the French resort of Montgenevre – it’s possible to ski there and back in a day. Each resort also has its own terrain park, so there’s plenty to keep boarders happy too.
