Sauze d’Oulx sits on a sloping mountain shelf facing north-west to the mountains b*ing France. It is a mid-sized resort. The Via Lattea or Milky Way lift pass covers not only next-door Sestriere and Sansicario, easily reached by lift and piste, but also the more remote slopes of Claviere and Montgenevre. Sauze has an arratic snow record and far from comprehensive snowmaking system.

Most runs in Sauze are classified as red (although some will seem more like blacks) and are fairly short, with the exception of run 12 - so youll probably ski the same ones over and over again. Once youve mastered the area you can venture out towards Sestriere or Montgenevre/Claviere in the other direction. With a Vialattea pass youll have access to 400km of interlinked pistes so there is huge area to explore!

The ski area really is massive with good links to the other resorts, including the opportunity to ski into France. This being Italy none of the runs are really difficult, including the Olympic runs, just a lot of fun.

Nightlife can be as crazy as you want it. There are lots of bars, with happy hours and lots of live music. This being Italy prices are not too high.

On the downside the lift system realy needs some updating.

Sauze d'Oulx (Via Lattea) is just great. Via Lattea offers so much skiing area, even if the lift system really needs to be updated. It was freezing on some of the chairs, I would have loved a bubble to keep the cold out, and if they were faster it would have helped too. Apres-ski is brilliant, prices good, atmosphere in the bars, live music, great restaurants, just cannot fault the resort at all

Sauze d'Olux is mostly a red run resort and even the few blacks I'd really call reds. I went to all the resorts in the Milky Way: Pragelato Sestrieree, Sanscario, Clavier and a day trip to Montgenevre, in France. The lifts can shut at the first sign of bad weather (this is generally in the afternoons and will get as bad as 5 meter visibility), weekends are really busy with the locals but even then the longest I waited for a chair lift was 10 mins, the ski plod are always on the lookout for an off-pister which will cost you a few euros! All piste restaraunts were fantastic and great value although the day in France was extremely expensive so keep some euros for that.
