Sestriere

Ski resorts in Italy
Sestriere is Italy’s first ski resort and it is very popular, to say the least. Sestriere is relatively small, especially when compared to ski resorts such as Madonna di Campiglio, which is situated just at the French border. In Sestriere, which sits at an elevation of just over 2,000 meters, you are almost guaranteed great snow conditions. Despite being a small place, the World Championships were actually hosted here, in 1997. Skiers of all levels will find something that suits them in Sestriere. There are plenty of blue pistes for those who prefer easy cruising and comfortable slopes. Advanced skiers will find steep conditions in off-piste runs.

After snow fall you are guaranteed really awesome tree skiing and if you are keen to try out the slopes used in Turin during the Olympics, then simply head over to that side of the village. A great plus with Sestriere is that it forms part of the gigantic Via Lattea ski region – also called the "Milky Way".
Sestriere belong to Via Lattea.
