As one of the highest ski resorts in Italy, Sestrière has it all - excellent snow conditions, a laid-back feel, 400km of beautifully pisted runs and a chilled-out aprés scene. It's a cosmopolitan sort of place, boasting genuine Italian hospitality, and of course, the skiing is fabulous!
The resort sits at 2035m and is situated just above the treeline. Its neighbouring resort, Sauze d'Oulx, has a more lively atmosphere, which makes the relaxing vibes at Sestrière seem even more relaxed in comparison. This is the place where you can ski or board until your legs can't take anymore, then soak up the sun and have a few aperitivos.
It’s mostly about the mountain here, however there are amazing spa facilities at the Grand Hotel for you to indulge in, or you can relax in one of the lovely cafés and bars, taking in the classically Italian vibe.
After the slopes close there are a smattering of bars and clubs to while away the hours in with a few drinks and a lively atmosphere. And then there’s the boutique shopping, which proves to be very popular, or see the resort from a dog's point of view on a dog sled trip.
