Sansicario is a purpose built resort village for the Olympics in 2006 that hosted the Woman’s Downhill and Super G Alpine races, offering you and your more advanced students the chance to ski the same piste.
As a standalone ski area it offers a good mix of skiing for all abilities – it’s perfectly positioned at the center of a huge, natural bowl, offering mixed skiing. This is further enhanced with direct, quick links into Sestriere and Suaze. You can also ski down into Cesana and take the lifts into Claviere.
