Sauze d'Oulx is a superb place to learn to ski - the ski school is relaxed and friendly and the main nursery slopes are up on the mountain - so you'll get to experience the mountains from the start. Once you get more confident, there's a huge range of wide open runs that are great to practise on.
The Colo chairlift is the link lift to Sansicario leading on to the famous Milky Way system covering Sestriere and Sansicario.
The Moncrons area will be a challenge for better skiers and the Genevris area also offers off-piste possibilities. Cross over to Sestriere and Sansicario with the Basset 4-seater chairlift for a whizz down the World Championship Kandahar run in Sestriere and some long challenging red runs in Sansicario.
Rack up your mileage with a Ski Away-day to Montgenèvre. Just a 45-minute bus ride away from Sauze d’Oulx, you’ll be able to swoop down the slopes from as early as first lifts, taste France’s most renowned mountain meal, Tartiflette, and challenge yourself on the boardercross courses and mogul-filled runs. With your 6-day local lift pass, you get 1 free day to let loose on the fabulous mountains to slide, carve or freestyle to your heart’s content. Speak to your rep for more details.
The cross-country tracks in Sauze d'Oulx are great for the athletic and enthusiastic Langlauf-ers out there. The Olympic cross-country centre near Claviere is great if you want to push yourself even harder. You will have to pay to access the circuits by Claviere and Montgenèvre though.
From beginners to experts, there are slopes in Sauze d'Oulx suited to every ability. Novices will receive wonderful English instruction, while intermediate riders have an abundance of interconnecting red tree runs at their fingertips. The off-piste is pretty slick, too - freeriders can weave through the trees or head to Rio Nero, which is very popular with expert boarders. If you're a freestyler, you'll have to travel a bit further to Sestriere for a terrain park, but you'll have fun getting there, that's for sure.
