Sauze d'Oulx

Ski resorts in Italy
In the 1990s this place in western Italy used to be the preferred place for wild UK skiers. It is probably the same people who come here today, but as time has moved on so have their ages. The pulse in the village has dropped to the same extent and it is really not much of a wild place any longer. The many English style bars and pubs that still exist, revealing the village's past popularity amount the British.

When it comes to skiing, Sauze d'Oulx is a relatively quite place although the skiing area is vast. Sauze d'Oulx is connected to many other villages both in Italy and France, including Sestriere and Montgenevre. A large ski area commonly offers a wide range of skiing, and most things you can imagine are available in and around Sauze d'Oulx, both above and below the timber line. Unfortunately, the lift system is not on par with many other larger ski areas. Many lifts cannot be labeled modern.
Sauze d'Oulx belong to Via Lattea.
