Sestrère School Ski Trips
Offering Some of the Best Snow Sure Conditions in the Milky Way

Part of the Milky Way ski circuit Sestrère is served by extensive snow making facilities but as the highest resort, Sestrère also naturally has some of the best ski conditions in the whole region and regularly remains open when nearby resorts are struggling. Sestrère was the first purpose built resort in Europe and hosted the 2006 Winter Olympics which resulted in huge investment in renovation and lift improvement.

The resort was built for snow at an altitude of 2035m and with the majority of its slopes being north west facing, it is a good choice for groups looking for something later in the season. The area offers some 400km of piste, served by 88 lifts and connecting with the nearby resorts of Suze d’Oulx, Claviere, Cesana and Sansicario.

The skiing in Sestrère is mainly open slopes with some wooded areas facing the idyllic village along the slope. The area is very good for beginner students with several nursery slopes and a selection of gentle blue runs. The more confident, intermediate students are spoilt for choice with a variety of steeper runs served by drag lifts in both sectors.
