The title is already a program, but the Via Lattea (Milky Way )is a ski area that includes the stations of Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, San Sicario, Cesana, Oulx, Claviere, Pragelato and Montgenevre.
There are 72 ski lifts, ranging from 1350 meters at Cesana to 2800 meters at the top of Motta, offering superb views on all the surrounding mountains and allowing skiers to enjoy the vastness and beauty of the area.
Wide open spaces, scenic, snowy and lighted slopes, typical refuges for refreshment from the fatigue of the mountain, where to enjoy fine cuisine and modern resorts offering all the best comfort and leisure.
In Sestriere visitors can ski at night with artificial lighting on the slope dedicated to Giovanni Alberto Agnelli.
And precisely in Sestriere Borgata, situated 4 km far from Colle del Sestriere, the first ski facilities, that gave the entire development area, were born.
This is an ideal place for those who love snow and want to experience the thrill of skiing on the slopes that have hosted the XX Olympic Winter Games.
