Italy, Milky Way Ski Area
Superbly positioned at the heart of the Milky Way's 400km of pistes is the highest and most snow-sure resort in this area. Purpose built in the 1930's the town has a modern and trendy feel. Apres-ski is varied from cosy wine bars to more lively bars and pubs. The already extensive lift system was further improved for the 2006 Winter Olympics with new uphill capacity in Sauze and Sansicario. We also feature accommodation in Borgata, a quieter alpine village 4 km from Sestriere. The ski pass includes one day's skiing in Montgenevre in France.
The Hotel Belvedere offers its guests a warm, sophisticated atmosphere with elegantly furnished public rooms and a restaurant sporting panoramic views. This attractive hotel has the comforts of home and provides a free shuttle bus, and ski storage on the main slopes.
The striking Hotel Principi di Piemonte is in great ski-in/ski-out position to make the most of the slopes. Its eye catching design is continued inside with a clever mix of natural wood and stone decor, giving it a warm mountain lodge atmosphere.
