Sestriere is part of the huge Via Lattea system. Went over there one day last winter (lived in Serre Che) and was mostly pleasantly surprised. As it was weekend, it was spotty with people from Turin and Milan, and the car queues down the mountain were huge, but the ride was good.

The slopes have numbers, something that made me quite lost when I'm used to France where all the slopes have names, but honestly, that's a pistemap the last thing you need in Sestriere.
All slopes cross each other hello, and as long as you know which side of the valley you are on (not difficult) it's impossible to get wrong.
On one side of the village are the slopes used for the Turin Olympics and on the opposite side you can cross to Sauze d'Oulx and the rest of Via Lattea. That's it. Also takes a cab lift from Pragelato to Sestriere. There are no slopes down to Pragelato but according to people who had more luck with the snow than I did - cruel forest skiing.

I will definitely try to get to Sestriere again, and next time I will go there mid-week after a dump.

Got even my prejudices about the average ski Italian imprisoned. Red, black, shop racers and prada sunglasses - everywhere. Magnifico!

Sestriere is part of the skiing area Via Latte (The Milky Way). According to the land placement, this will be the world's largest cohesive ski system.

I was in Sestriere and went for a number of helicopter skiing January / Feb 2002 and it was great. Helicopters are expensive so it became quite the most fun skiing as well. Went even in a place called Montgenevre also is part of Via Latte.

Really good skiing in both places. You can find nice forest skiing in Sestriere, reminiscent of the Sierre Chevalier on the other side of the border (about 30 minutes by car from Montgenevre).

In addition, it takes only 1-1.5 hours to drive to La Grave if you want to know it.
