Sauze d’Oulx is among one of the largest ski resorts within the 440 kilometers (273 miles) of lift-linked Milk Way ski domain. This charming medieval village is located in the Val di Susa, at the foot of Monte Genevris, and appeals to families as well as party-goers. Sauze d’Oulx is located just 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Turin (Torino), making it extremely accessible for those flying overseas. The skiing is all things to all people. While Sauze is largely an intermediate’s dream, as part of the wider Milky Way it offers Olympic downhill in Sestriere and small-resort charm up the road in Claviere. Sauze d’Oulx was the site of Freestyle skiing events in the 2006 Winter Olympics.
Sauze d'Oulx's ski area can be accessed from four different points around the village, all served by chair lifts and linked at resort level by a ski bus.
Sauze d'Oulx ski resort
Beginners have a village-level “learn to ski” slope at the base of the Clotes chair, but most of the learning takes place up at mid-mountain Sportina. Intermediates will get the most out of Sauze d’Oulx, as well as the neighbooring Milk Way ski resorts. These include Sestrière's famous slopes and the long reds above down from Fratieve to Sansicario. Expert skiers will find some fun off-piste glades in the lower slopes or in the high-Alpine powder bowls. There are a variety of off-piste routes which a guide can show you that descend 1,300 meters (4,265 feet) from the top of Fratieve to the valley.
