Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Via Lattea 2022

Oh the pressure - a thread starter

I am booked for Sauze with my 3 daughters for 2nd week of Jan. I have been twice previously (10+ years ago) Read extensively so I understand the shortcomings - but the major criteria that swung it were:

Short transfer
Price

And if the links are open - its a nice area.

Open to advice on transfers, hiring equipment and school.

Were any new lifts added in Via Lattea or has COVID rendered any construction work impossible?

I was wondering the same. Certainly 2 new lifts were approved for construction before COVID struck. They are definitely doing earthworks here and there to improve things, but I’ve not seen any evidence either way regarding the lifts.

We will be in Sestriere at Christmas and again at half term. We have always had good snow across half a dozen visits (but not always good off piste), lots of sun, a bit of wind, and lots of good lunches on the mountain.

@Game of Snows, any idea what the Sestriere to Sauze link will be like this season? Will it just be the black runs? And are they really steep blacks? Or are they wide. I cant remember and I have a cautious but competent blue/red skier with me.

Will be intetrested on how the regiou is skiing Christmas since I am there 2nd week Jan.

It should be fine - pre Covid they bypassed the piste that was closed following the tragic accident. A new track runs parallel to it but out of the wind. I think it’s a blue - you can see it on Google earth quite well. Looking at the webcam, it looks like they’ve widened it this summer.

‘Vallone del Rio Nero’ webcam seems to show it. Looks like they are still improving it!

So - I am staying in Sauze D'oulx. Any recommendations for a Skli Hire shop - or is it much of a muchness and I should just select a place reasonably close to accommodation....

Sorry, I don’t know. We are based on the Sestriere side. We use Cristina Sci and Golf in Sestriere for the kids (lovely family run the hire shop and the gift shop), but I doubt they have a shop in Sauze

@ado, I always use Eydallin sports at the bottom of Clotes. They offer storage for online bookings if that is any use

@toyah807, Eydallin seem to get good reviews.
Based on location it's them or Lol Sportivo.

we are heading (Hopefully) to Sestriere on 19/12 for a week. Looking forward to it even though I am a bit nervous travelling for the first time after COVID.

@toyah807, any comment on the quality of the equipment? they seem to have the best feedback so far - but its hard to really judge?
and if my some miracle I was going to buy - do they have have boot fitting service?

 You know it makes sense.

@ado, i have always been more than happy with their service, location and storage (used 3 times). Never used them for boot fitting but they seem to do most things and will reply to questions promptly. In relation to transfers I don't know their current status but I would recommend Sauzetaxi (www.sauzetaxi.it ) based on my own experience. Our transfer was prompt and reasonable, but on arrival in Sauze we realised that one of my friends had left his ipad on the plane. It ended up in lost property at Turin (open monday to friday only) and Roberto from Sauzetaxi organised for one of his colleagues doing a midweek airport run to go and fetch it whilst there. That evening it was waiting in our hotel reception, so very helpful.

@Game of Snows, We are thinking of heading to Sestriere for week after Christmas, can you recommend any of the ski schools for kids? Aged 5 and 7. Preferably full day classes(ie 4hrs).

Hi, I’m sorry but our kids had learnt before we started going to Sestriere. They did have the odd lesson, but I can’t remember with whom now.

Like all ski schools, it’s often down to the individual instructor- the kids had some very scary French ESF instructors over the years (but still enjoyed it and progressed).

@Game of Snows, No worries, thanks! To be completely honest, I was initially debating Sestriere as being snow-sure, however it was your response above that helped with that one Wink

Well, I see there is a little snow down to the town already and the canons have been firing to consolidate that all the way down to Borgata which must be a few hundred meters lower than Sestriere itself. According to Wepowder, there should be more snow this week and possibly some the week after, so hopefully the season can start on natural snow and save the company the cost of using the canons a lot.
