This is a small, chalet-style gem of a hotel on the outskirts of Sauze d'Oulx. Its location could not be better for keen skiers and snowboarders as the Jouvenceaux Sportinia lift is just 50m away, so you can ski or board to it straight from the boot room! And for those that are comfortable on red runs, it's possible to ski back to the hotel too. 

 

There's a lovely, typically Italian laid-back atmosphere thanks to the intimate bar and snug lounge with its open fire. The dining area is also rustically styled with original stone walls and wooden ceilings. Plenty of wooden furnishings create an authentic mountain feel too. And being on the outskirts of Sauze means that the views across the valley are spectacular, particularly from the large sun terrace.  

 

 

Sauze's legendary nightlife is about 1km up the hill and ski buses run every 30 minutes or so from a stop a couple of minutes' walk away. There's also a hotel shuttle bus that we run regularly to the resort centre between 5 & 10pm everyday. Alternatively, the small village of Jouvenceaux has a couple of restaurants and bars that are only a few minutes away. 

 

To help you relax at the end of the day, there's a small wellness area with a hot tub, sauna and small treatment room offering sports and relaxing massages. The Edelweiss really does tick all of the boxes for a great little ski hotel. We'll see you there soon!

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.

Food and drink

Our club board basis is designed for skiers and boarders. Breakfast is a fairly extensive affair with cooked and continental options every day. Your daily afternoon tea of warming soup plus freshly baked cakes and biscuits will be waiting for you when you come in from the slopes.

 

Evening meals are a waiter-served three-course set menu with a mix of popular and regionally inspired dishes. You'll have three choices of starter and main and two choices of dessert, all with a vegetarian option. Fresh coffee follows dessert and you can buy drinks to accompany your meal from the bar.

 

 

We provide evening meals on six nights a week to leave you free to head out and explore the resort on one evening. For shorter holidays over New Year 2016/17, you still have one night free to explore the resort and local cuisine.

 

 

Rooms

The 24 bedrooms are spacious and a nice mix of traditional and contemporary in style. Many have hand carved furniture and balconies with fantastic views across the piste and surrounding mountains. You'll find all the usual facilities too; cable TV, mini-safe, telephone and an en-suite bathroom with hairdryer, shower & wc.

 

 

Equipment delivery service

When you pre-book equipment hire with us, you can also enjoy our hassle-free delivery service. Simply head to the equipment hire shop on arrival day (about a 10-15min walk), get fitted for your hire kit and the shop will deliver it to the hotel later that day. On the last day of your holiday, simply head back to the shop and drop the kit off.
