Milky Way

The Famous Milky Way area in Italy is must-ski for all keen skiers. Internationally recognised, it offers more skiing than most French or Austrian ski areas with 400km of pistes, as well as featuring the exciting opportunity to ski across borders between France and Italy. There are 6 main resorts in the Milky Way, 5 Italian and one in France - Montgenevre. Perfect for a ski adventure for some French mountain cuisine such as tartiflette or crozets, before skiing back home to Sauze D’Oulx in the afternoon for an evening meal of fresh Italian pasta (both meals served with wine no doubt!).
