It’s important to remember that your journey from Milan airport to Sestriere will take you to a very high altitude. To some passengers, this can present its own potential complications.
Milan airport sits at 235m, while Sestriere sits at an altitude of 2035m. If you’re not used to high altitude, you could be susceptible to altitude sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness.

When calculating fares, we start with our standard price and then reduce this based on the factors mentioned above. This dynamic approach means we only ever decrease our prices – never increase them.
