Luxury in Via Lattea: The Milky Way to Olympic ski fun

The cross-border ski resort lies in the Italian Alps only 10km from the French border. With the ski region stretching from Sestrière in Italy to Montgenèvre in France, it was the ideal venue for the Olympic Winter Games of Turin in 2006, which led to a substantial investment in and improvement of the infrastructure for winter sports. A massive 400km of pisted slopes that cover Cesana, Claviere, Sansicario, Sauze d'Oulx, Sestriere and Montgenevre on the French side of the border, is collectively known as The Milky Way, or the Via Lattea. All levels of skiers are catered for on these slopes that rise as high as 3280m and include two Olympic downhill runs.

Anyone of the 62 ski lifts will swiftly transport you to a starting point from where you can ski for days without going down the same run twice! A scenic cross-country track goes all the way through the lovely Val Troncea National Park. But, everyone who goes up a mountain, must come down, and then it is good to know that the village of Via Lattea and the local area have some great restaurants offering an impressive range of Italian cuisine and well-stocked wine lists including the local celebrated brands like Barolo and Barbaresco. Leo Trippi Luxury Travel can provide you with a luxury ski chalet or apartment for rent, on a catered or a self-catered basis.
