Skiing and Boarding in Sauze D’Oulx

Located in the north-west of Italy, perched in the Upper Susa Valley at 1510m Sauze D’Oulx is ideally situated to access the 212 pistes covering the 400km of the Milky Way Ski Area. With a vast amount of easy-accessed skiing both at the treeline and in the high-alpine, it’s an ideal resort for intermediates to advanced skiers to enjoy. Novices won’t be disappointed either as there’s a glut of cruisey tree runs leading back into the resort village to practice on.
Snow conditions above 1500m are generally very consistent, and to make sure it stays that way there are plenty of snow-making facilities dotted around the resort. There are 89 lifts in Sauze, with 50 or so being drag lifts enabling quick access to the skiing. Throw 5 snow parks into the mix and you have a fantastic offering to suit a wide variety of skiers and snowboarders.

Lift Pass Options in Sauze D’Oulx

A 6 day Milky Way lift pass covers you for all the resorts on the Italian side of the border plus one day’s access to the French resort of Montgenevre. Pricing is generally cheaper than other well-known Alpine resorts and considering the volume of skiing on offer, a Milky Way pass really does present great value for money.
Also, a local area pass is available at a lesser cost which is a good option for beginners, plus a pedestrian pass is available on a day-rate, giving access to the mountain restaurants in the Sportinia area above the resort.
