On Friday, December 30 in Sestriere, ski instructors will put on a great show on the snow: the largest torchlight procession in Italy.
Starting at 9 p.m., ski instructors belonging to 9 ski schools of the resort will ski down the slopes of Sestriere with torches and will all meet at the parterre, the same as the Ski World Cup. At the end of the descent, the Gruppo Alpini of Sestriere will offer mulled wine to everyone.
The initiative is organized by the Municipality of Sestriere in collaboration with the Ski Schools, Consorzio Turismo Sestriere, Vialattea and Pro Loco Sestriere.
