So what's it like?
Excellent, extensive ski area and a cosmopolitan atmosphere
Having benefitted from the investment of hosting the successful 2006 Winter Olympic Games, and home to some of the best skiing in the Milky Way ski area, Sestriere is a magnet for ski lovers and a sophisticated resort with the latest amenities. Nestled in the renowned Milky Way ski area, the resort is ideally placed to access a wide range of truly excellent slopes. Sestriere's own skiing is also pretty extensive, with pistes divided into three main areas and connected via one of the most advanced mountain lift systems in the Alps, where the uncrowded runs offer perfect conditions to ski and board at your own pace.
€50 hotel credit
There'll be a credit of €50 waiting for you at the hotel with this offer. Use it in the bar or restaurant and save some cash while you're away.
Most of the beginners slopes fan out in an arc from the ski school meeting place in the centre of Sestriere with easy runs from the two baby lifts and the Jolly. To the right of the area are two further drag lifts, ideal for first timers.
Sestriere is an intermediates paradise. The skiing is on two main areas, Banchetta and Sises, offering plenty of choice from short mogul fields to long wide runs for cruising. An added bonus to the 21 lifts in the immediate Sestriere area is the amazing 89 lifts on the extensive Milky Way.
The huge bowl of the Amfiteatro offers excellent skiing and the black runs at the top of Motta and Sises provide the expert with plenty of skiing. The famous Kandahar Slalom and Kandahar Banchetta runs are used in World Championship races.
