Skiing Holidays in the Milky Way Ski area in Italy
The Milky Way ski area in Italy is made up of the following Italian resorts and one French resort too!
Sauze d’Oulx, Jovenceaux, Sestriere, Pragelato, Sansicario, Cesana, Claviere and Montgenevre over the border in France. All are linked and the ski area is perfect for all levels of skier but particularly good for intermediates.
Surprisingly the ski area covers in total a total of 400km of pistes which is larger than the famous Espace Killy area in France!
Sauze d’Oulx is situated at a height of 1509m on the far left had side of the Milky way and also links down to the traditional quiet little village of Jovenceaux. We have a selection of Hotels, chalet hotels, and apartments in the Sauze D’Oulx area some of which are ski in and out or just at the bottom of the main slope into town.
Over the peak at 2701m at Sauze d’Oulx you can find Sestriere which is the highest village in the Milky Way area standing at 2035m. This snow sure village has a selection of hotels and apartments and its skiing goes up to 2825m. Just below Sestriere is the purpose built village of Pragelato at 1535m where you will find Club Med’s Pragelato hotel its one of their newer additions to its portfolio for an all-inclusive skiing holiday.
You ski through Sansicario at 1700m down to Cesana at the foot of the valley to get over to the Claviere side of the Milky way and this is the route to the French side of the skiing in Montgenevre.
Montgenevre at 1850m is an intermediates paradise with wide easy runs suitable for beginners and intermediates alike with some harder red and black runs towards the Col L’Alpet ridge. We have a selection of accommodation in Montgenevre which has a small traditional village set along the valley floor. There are a handful of chalets and self-catered apartments and hotels available in this lovely high resort. No matter what, we will find you a great ski deal.
