Sauze was great and little different to any other European resort I have ever visited. The old town centre seems to get largely ignored as people congregate around the main square and its shops and bars, this is a shame as the old town is very attractive with cobbled streets and houses nestling together. The skiing was great - the reds in Sauze are some of the nicest cruising runs ever experienced. No lift queues anywhere in this end of the Milky Way. The links to the two neighbouring resorts need improving and when it snows the lack of a bubble anywhere in the resort can be an issue. That said, it sounds as if both are being resolved this year.

The snow conditions were great but for a resort that was part of the Torino 2006 Winter Olympics the linkages across the Milky Way were poor and the piste signage was appalling. Whilst snow was not in short supply I did feel the piste maintenance could have been better. The town certainly had a number of lively bars although the price of a large beer was well above central London prices. You can still enjoy a snack and cup of coffee at affordable rates.rnrnAnother plus was the total lack of queuing throughout the week; the two of us did not need to share a chair lift once. However, if you wish to ski the whole Milky Way this will be hard to achieve without resorting to hiring a taxi if y

Sauze D’oulx was disappointing for us. We had been to Livigno twice and thoroughly enjoyed it, so we decided to stay in Italy this time also. The resort doesn’t come near to matching the delightful Livigno. Firstly, it is a disastrous resort for beginners and advanced skiers. For beginners, you have to take a long and steep chairlift before you even reach the snow. This can be intimidating, particularly if you have never taken a chair lift before. The blue runs are very basic and few and far between. For intermediates there are a lot of red runs, which is great if you are of that grade. For advanced skiers there is only one black run on the Sauze D’Oulx side of

Just back from Sauze ( feb 2008) we had been once before as beginners and it was everything we remembered. The snow was fantastic and the weather even better. I was a very cautious skier at the beginning of the week but thanks to a great ski school was a much more competetent and very much less cautious skier by the end of the week. There is great access to the other resorts and the olympic runs in Sestriere were a great draw/ We stayed for the second time in hotel martin. It was perfect. From the minute we arrived we felt relaxed. The family looked after us so very well. The food was stunning and the bar lovely. There was a great choice of wine and the atmosphere so relaxing just what we wa

Stayed (late March 07) in Hotel Splendid - high end of resort and just uphill from Clotes chairlift, in good conditions there is a skiable cut-through comes out opposite. Nice hotel, friendly staff but disappointing food. Very attractive ski area but not so good piste maintenance - we arrived to heavy snow after several weeks of none so the links had been closed. By day 3 we were ready to explore new terrain but despite wonderful powder, the links were still not open. Day 4-5 -fantastic skiing in Sansicario and Sestriere plus day out in Serre Chevalier (not so attractive). I was skiing alone but linked with the ski rep Sarah and with a small group had a wonderful time including fantastic off
