Resort overview

Sauze d'Oulx is by far the liveliest of the 5 villages within the 400km Milky Way ski area spanning the border of France and Italy. The resort centre at the base of the slopes is pedestrianised and it sprawls out to the old village full of cobbled streets and wooden buildings with stone roofs, a 16th century church and fountain at the centre as well as plenty of bars and restaurants.

Skiing in Sauze d'Oulx

Around Sauze d'Oulx you'll find a huge array of long quiet slopes with the lower reaches covered in larch forest giving you some fantastically winding tree runs. Higher up you'll find spectacular mountain panoramas through to France - if you get the area pass you can ski over here as well. Suited well to intermediate skiers, the resort is full of reds and the few blacks there are aren't the most challenging, creating a cruisy ski area with the size to give you a real sense of travelling through it.

Apres ski

Overlooking the Susa Valley, Sauze d'Oulx is nicknamed 'the balcony of the Alps' and there are definitely the views to back this claim. A year-round population keeps the town (or rather, large village) thriving. Renown for a buzzing nightlife Sauze offers a good mix of bars. You'll be able to find the right spot for you whether you're after sophisticated wine bars or up for partying till the early hours.

We know how valuable your skiing time is to you so that is why we can to pre-book your lift passes for you, to save you the time and hassle of doing it once in resort. No additional charge!

The lift passes will be ready and waiting for you in your chalet/hotel/apartment, so you can hit the slopes immediately! You can book these at any time after you've booked.

Ski & equipment hire

The last thing you want to do at the start of your holiday is queue up in a crowded ski hire shop. We understand this and that is why we offer to pre-book all your equipment so that it is ready and waiting for you. You can either collect it from the shop yourself or some shops even offer a chalet fitting service, where all the equipment will be brought around to the chalet, thus avoiding the ski hire shop completely.
