Sansicario ski & snowboard holidays take you to a very pleasant village which is part of the Milky Way. Located at an altitude of seventeen hundred metres, between Sauze d'Ouix and Sestriere, and with the highest lift at almost three thousand metres, the resort has a good snow record. The village itself has almost forty ski runs but being linked to the Milky Way, and with the appropriate pass, the area then has four hundred kilometres of pistes, sufficient to keep all levels of proficiency happy, in both skiing and boarding. Sansicario has a pedestrianised centre which is always a bonus for those with children. The relaxed atmosphere and the low key apres ski scene reflects its popularity with families and couples.
Low cost Sansicario ski & snowboard holidays have great appeal. With superb snow conditions, slopes to suit everyone, and a charming, traditional village, bargain breaks are quickly snapped up. Beginners take the Baby Sansicario chair lift to the easiest blues where, with the help of good tuition, they can learn the basics and then put their new found skills into practice, before moving on to greater challenges at a higher altitude. Intermediates, as always, have the greatest choice of more demanding reds both in the resort and in neighbouring terrain. The 2006 winter olympics held the women's downhill course in Sansicario. It makes a testing run for the more proficient intermediate skier. Advanced skiers have good off piste terrain above the resort and some difficult black runs in Sestriere and Sauze d'Oulx. Be sure to take a mountain guide if you plan to venture off-piste. Crosscountry skiers have a meagre seven kilometres of trails.
Sansicario hotels and apartments provide good, comfortable accommodation. Your welcome is always warm and friendly and service is excellent. The resort itself has six mountain restaurants and there are thirty four in the Milky Way area. Restaurants and cafes both on and off the mountain provide a wide range of cuisine. It is no surprise that pasta and pizza are ever present on menus and provide a satisfying, low cost dining option. Ideal for those on a tight budget. Although there are bars and pubs, nightlife remains fairly relaxed with entertainment being mostly hotel based.
