Tucked in-between the sunny Susa and Chisone valleys, Sestriere is a friendly town with only a hint of the pretense of a rich Italian ski village left in the air. It is now a mix of young Italians and families coming to enjoy over 400 kilometers (249 miles) of pistes connected to the Milky Way. As host to many of the Alpine events of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin , Sestriere has received a much needed boost into the international limelight.

Unfortunately, the town isn’t as charming as its inhabitants, as it didn’t escape the massive building blocks of the 60s and 70s. Yet it does host one mark of architectural genius—the circular hotel tower designed by Giovanni Agnelli in 1930 when Sestriere began its history as one of the major ski resorts in Italy .

Sestriere has much to offer both on and off the slopes, the greatest being local culinary delights. One of the best things about skiing Sestriere is that you are in Italy . Your skier’s appetite will be well satisfied by Piedmont specialties and all the Italian favorites.

In the entire Milky Way, there are three gondolas, four high speed quads, nine quads, three three-person chairs, 13 two-person chairs, a one-person chair, and 50 drag lifts. A quarter of the chair lifts are detachable, and the total uphill capacity is 100,000 per hour!
