Situated at one end of the 400km lift-linked Vialattea , Sauze d’Oulx is one of the larger, more popular, resorts of the area. Sauze d’Oulx provides mainly intermediate runs and is a red paradise. There is a mid resort located at just over 2000mt called Sportina. All the runs from here are tree lined whilst above Sportinia it opens up and provides the links to the rest of the Vialattea skiing area.
For advanced skiers there is easy connection to Sestriere and the black runs at the top of Mount Motta and Mount Sises, and the Olympic Kandahar Slalom and Kandahar Barchetta runs. Nearer to home their is some challenging skiing off the top of Fraiteve with much of the northern face left un pisted.
If you like to venture off the beaten track then Sauze d’Oulx offers some great off piste through the trees. As with most resorts the best off piste is locked away in the minds of locals however there are guides available to help you find the best runs.
Beginners are well catered for too as Sauze d’Oulx has excellent English-speaking ski and snowboard schools that will get you up and skiing, or boarding, in no time at all.
Sauze d’Oulx has a much better than average sunshine record and much above average skiing. The vast majority of the pistes in Sauze d’Oulx have artificial snow-making facilities which is true throughout the Vialattea skiing area.
When the day has finished the town offers as much or as little apres as you like. There are plenty of bars to choose from offering you everything from sophisticated cocktails and excellent local wines to pints of Guinness. This being Italy the standard of restaurants is high.
