Resort Information

Best for:

Book a school ski trip to Sansicario and take to the slopes of an Olympic resort! Part of the epic Milky Way (or Via Lattea in Italian) area, Sansicario offers your group access to 400km of skiing, in both Italy and France. It’s perfectly positioned at the centre of a huge, natural bowl, which offers masses of skiing and good connections to Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx and Claviere. A purpose-built resort, Sansicario’s site was chosen for its snow security and good slopes. A monorail and covered walkways will help you navigate the resort in comfort and the village itself is traffic-free, making it a safe choice for school groups. 

Skiing Information

When you ski in Sansicario, you’ll enjoy long, scenic motorways and challenging reds that carry you all the way back to the village. And, of course, the very best thing about a school ski holiday to Sansicario is that it gives you access to the Milky Way’s 400km of skiing. You can explore Sauze d’Oulx, with its high bowl and long, sun-drenched intermediate runs. Or Sestriere, with its huge variety of skiing and World Cup pedigree. Every village has its own character and offers slightly different skiing experiences, but what unites them all is the laid-back atmosphere which is so ‘Italian’ – and creates a fantastic atmosphere in which to learn to ski.
