Situated at one end of the Via Lattea (Milky Way), Sauze d’Oulx is one of the larger, more popular, resorts of the area. With access to the Via Lattea’s 212 pistes, there is excellent skiing available for all abilities.
Sauze provides mainly intermediate runs and is a red run paradise. For advanced skiers there is easy connection to Sestriere and the black runs at the top of Mount Motta, Mount Sises and the Olympic Kandahar Slalom and Kandahar Barchetta runs. Nearer to home there is some challenging skiing off the top of Fraiteve (2690mts) with much of the northern face offering some great off piste.
Red Run Paradise
The resort is nestled amongst larch tree forests with many of the best runs winding their way through the trees back to the village. Sportinia is a mid resort located just above Sauze d’Oulx at over 2000mt. All the runs from here are tree lined whilst above Sportinia it opens up and provides the links to the rest of the Milky Way.
If you like to venture off the beaten track then Sauze also offers some great off piste through the trees. As with most resorts the best off piste is locked away in the minds of locals however there are guides available to help you find the best runs.
Not just a winter resort
Sauze d’Oulx is not just a winter resort. It’s a fantastic place to visit during the summer months too. Mountain biking, walking, golf, road cycling are all on offer or simply use Sauze as your base to go off and explore Turin and the Susa Valley. The mountains offer a completely different experience during summer and it’s well worth considering. For more information take a look at the summer page.
