Milky Way, Italy

The Milky Way (or Vialattea as it is called locally) offers a wide choice of skiing opportunities: this International skiing area is made up of differnet resorts which include Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, Oulx, Sansicario, Cesana, Pragelato, Claviere as well as the French Montgenèvre.

And now you can reach the skiing area courses also from  Pragelato thanks to the cableway Pattemouche - Anfiteatro. It offers more that 163 skiing connected courses (41 blue, 92 red and 30 black slopes), that is a linear extension equal to 400 Km, and 66 ski-lifting facilities, whose altitude ranges from 1380 metres in Cesana to 2800 metres on top of the Motta course. More than 60% of courses scattered about the different skiing resorts of the area are covered by the planned snowmaking system net.

The skiing area denotes huge spaces, sunny snowy expanses, panoramic runs that connect ancient and traditional villages with modern towns that provide all comforts and entertainment. The expanse and variety of this skiing area can satisfy both the most demanding skiers, thanks to the long and difficult courses, and the beginners. Of course we did not forget the youngest skiers: they can enjoy the Baby Fun Parks located in Sansicario and Sauze d’Oulx, which feature funny inflatable structures, where the kids can learn to ski while having fun.

Alone or with the company of one of the 800 ski and snowboard instructors of the 14 ski schools present on the area you can discover the uniqueness of places, slopes and trails that snake trhough larch and fir woods, technically advanced and terrific Olympic courses, scenic roads and amphitheatres….and, why not, you could relax and enjoy a good glass of wine or a traditional dish in one of the typical high altitude refuges of the skiing area.

The Vialattea resorts are also known for the  excellent food.  In fact there are more than 30 high altitude refuges to back up the skiers with their dainties. You can remain on the courses all day long without having to forgo the pleasure of a well-deserved break and enjoy one of our traditional dishes.
