If you're looking for an option that's a great value right in the resort centre, this is the place for you! It's just 50 metres from the Clotes chairlift and a stone's throw from the shops, bars and restaurants in Sauze.
If you're in it for the nightlife, you won't be disappointed as there's plenty of après bars in the immediate area. How's that for convenient?
The hotel has a cosy little lounge with a TV if you'd like to catch up on your telly while you're relaxing too. It is worth noting though that the Sport won't accept single or mixed sex groups over six people, unless you're a family.

About the resort
Sauze d'Oulx sits at the northern end of the huge Milky Way ski area, perched on a sunny plateau. 'Sunny Sauze' (as it's come to be known) is particularly popular with the Brits and it's not a huge surprise as the resort is big on skiing but equally big on nightlife. It's a party town that's made even better due to the legendary skiing and boarding on offer.
As the gateway to some 400km of piste, it's a magnet for skiers and boarders who also like a bit of party action as well as their time on the mountains. It's a fantastic place for intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders thanks to endless cruisy blue runs and nearly 200kms of challenging reds.
At night the resort really comes to life. There's a huge amount of clubs, restaurants and bars offering a little bit of everything - live music, DJ sets, dancing, all available late into the night! Come for the mountains and stay for the nightlife.
