Sestrière lies at the heart of the Milky Way which offers almost 400 km of piste. There is a great selection of runs for all abilities that start in the town centre. Another bonus is the modern lift system which is much faster than neighbouring Sauze! Sestrière is a good base from which to explore the Milky Way, but be warned, some lifts close with little warning if the wind gets up and a taxi back from France is not cheap. The resort itself went through a bit of a make over in the run up to the Olympics, this was good in the long run as it meant faster lifts and more pleasing buildings. There are some decent bars to be found at Sestrière that provide lively entertainment!

Visitor Reviews of Sestrière (Via Lattea)

Fred from United Kingdom writes:

We love skiing in Italy and have done over the past 3 consecutive years.
The food is much better in quality and price than most French resorts. Snow fall has also been brilliant every time we visit.
This was our first visit to Sestriere (Via Lattea).
The skiing is varied and plentiful. However, if you are the type of skier concerned about the colour of runs this is probably not the best resort for you. There are reds that are blacks, black runs that are easy reds. Blues that should be classified reds etc etc.
The ski map is useless to say the least. The resorts are interlinked in part via some long steep pole lifts. If you are averse to these then stay away.
In summary, if you are a good skier you will love Via Lattea and will return.
We love skiing Italy and will return to Sestriere.
