Sestriere is a good place to try cross-country skiing if the idea of this high-intensity workout appeals, where you’re gliding from ski to ski. There are some easy to medium loops from 2km to 7.5km at the resort, a venue for the 2006 winter Olympics. For something a little different when the ski legs are tired, dog-sledding is also a fun option.
Sestriere may have a reputation for being more chilled than famous party resorts but there are still plenty of places you can let your hair down. Aperitivo time is always taken seriously in Italy! There’s a number of bars and restaurants on the main street serving everything from live music to fine dining.
