The Vialattea is an international skiing area consisting of 5 Piedmontese resorts, Sestriere, Sauze d'Oulx, Sansicario, Cesana, Claviere and Montgenevre in France. It offers more than 214 skiing-connected runs, for a total linear extent of 400 kilometers (250 miles) with 89 lifts ranging from an altitude of 1,350 meters in Cesana to 2,800 meters at Mount Motta, a peak that gives a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains allowing skiers to appreciate the vastness and beauty of the area.
Snowmaking on 75-plus miles trails, guarantees optimum conditions for the whole season. Sestriere is on the main road, modern, bustling, surrounded by lifts and fashionable.
Sauze d’Oulx is a traditional village laced with a warren of narrow cobbled streets, tucked at the end of a winding mountain road with at least a dozen switchbacks. Sestriere is very Italian with a rhythm that reflects traditions of coffee, après ski at the hotels and some late-night disco action. Sauze d’Oulx is packed with British, Dutch, Irish and other European tourists and its pubs positively rock when the lifts close.
