Cheap lift pass & great diversity at the Via Lattea.

Powderhounds Europe19/02/2017
On the Italian side, the brash, tawdry looking Sestriere, the utilitarian Sansicario, lovely old Oulx, Claviere and Cesana, plus the purposeful Montgenevre just across the border in France, combine for a wonderfully diverse interlinked ski region.

The Via Lattea has the best value lift tickets in Western Europe, fantastic larch forest tree skiing, quality high altitude snow, huge off piste, a ski school a with a excellent reputation for looking after children and wonderful accessibility by fast train from Paris or Milan/Turin.

All this is let down by some seriously pushy weekend lift queues, low quality ski lifts and a few poorly designed lift and piste choke points at critical locations. There are also the newer resort village architectural disasters that one kind of get used to if you squint and tip your head sideways!! Crowded at weekends, quiet during the week.

The Vialattea is worthy of an extended midweek visit by all Powderhounds.
