Ski vacations Sestriere - Olympic pistes with Italian-French ambience!
Via LatteaSituated directly on the French-Italian border at 1,368 - 2,800 m is the extensive Via Lattea ski area. Entrance to the ski area is possible from both the French and Italian side. With 400 kilometres of piste and 71 lifts, the "Milk Street" offers gigantic fun on the pistes to meet all demands! Via Lattea, which became famous through the 1997 Ski World Championship and the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, has many challenging runs. Moreover, Sestriere is one of the hosts for the 2016/2017 Ski World Cup.
In the evening, one can enjoy "la dolce vita" in the cosy restaurants or enjoy the great après ski atmosphere in the bars and discos.
Sestriere lies about 100 km away from Turin, at an altitude of 2,035 m and is therefore right in the middle of the gorgeous alpine region of Piedmont. The border to France is not too far away, which allows for an international mix of France and Italy's love for life along and great winter sports. Sestriere is a younger winter sports destination, of which was created in the 1930's for the purpose of tourism. Several important international competitions have already taken place here, however, such as the Alpine Ski Championship in 1997 and the Turin Winter Olympics in 2006. Sestriere is counted as the highest-lying venue of the winter games. The two hotel towers at the resort entrance were home to the 1,700 athletes and support teams of the winter games, thus making it an Olympic village, what to this day is still the landmark of the area. Architecturally, Sestriere reflects a French ski resort - the ski arena, however, is typical Italian.
The "Milky Way", a translation of "Via Lattea", offers a huge selection of runs for all levels of difficulty in its border-crossing ski area. Off the piste, you'll find a number of free time activities to participate in such as heated outdoor pools, tennis, squash and the highest-lying 18 hole golf course in Europe. In the evenings, you can live "la dolce vita" in one of the many cosy restaurants or let loose in one of the bars or discos and experience après ski culture!
