An ideal resort for a fun packed holiday
Famous for the superb range of skiing, long hours of sunshine and its wide range of après ski entertainment.
Sauze d’Oulx is one of the five villages that form the Milky Way ski area. The slopes are extensive and uncrowded – it’s a mix of lower tree-lined slopes, off-piste, and higher open runs. These higher runs have amazing panoramic views of the mountains bordering France. Your lift pass not only covers next door’s Sestriere and Sansicario, but also Claviere and French resort Montgenevre. Mainly suitable for intermediate skiers - most runs are red so are also ideal area for snowboarders.
The resort town spreads widely across with a car-free centre. Renowned for being popular with the Brits there’s a very busy après scene and nightlife – ideal for those that love to party into the early hours. The resort has an excellent free ski bus service that follows four routes around the village taking you up to the Clotes and Sportinia lifts.
Ski Information Beginners
The village nursery slope is at the foot of the Clotes chairlift but the main area which most beginners will use is at Sportinia, a wide open plateau also with easy runs.
Ski Information Intermediates
The parallel Rocce Nere chairlifts extend from Sportinia to Monte Triplex and from the top there is a vast choice of red runs linking the Monte Triplex area with Rocce Nere. In addition, the Rio Nero drag lift is the link lift to Sansicario leading on to the famous Milky Way system covering Sestriere, Sansicario, Cesena and Claviere.
Ski Information Advanced
The Moncrons area will be a challenge for better skiers and the Genevris area also offers off-piste possibilities. Cross over to Sestriere and Sansicario with the Basset 4-seater chairlift for a whizz down the World Championship Kandahar run in Sestriere and some long challenging red runs in Sansicario.
