Is Sauze d’Oulx the genuine birthplace of Italian skiing? Some say so, what with the resort having been doing its thing since as far back as 1899. In any case, Sauze d’Oulx serves up three of the most important things any visitor could ask for – short transfers, gorgeous slopes and breathtaking scenery on all sides. Oh and trees…lots and lots of trees! It may not have enjoyed a good run of weather over recent winters, but the good thing is you’re never far from a whole world of pristine-piste action across the wider Milky Way ski area!
Ski Resort Location
Sauze d’Oulx is positioned at the far end of the Milky Way circuit, where in ideal conditions you can ski all the way to Montgenevre. Situated just a couple of hours away from a handful of airports, it’s hardly surprising that Sauze d’Oulx has become a firm favourite for weekend trips and short breaks. It’s also well-loved by semi-local Italians, too.
Once an infamously lively resort, things have quietened down significantly over recent years. To such an extent that Sauze d’Oulx now looks and feels more like a large village than a small town. The pedestrianised centre is still home to an endless array of bars, restaurants and entertainment venues of all kinds. The only difference these days being that the ravers of the 90s have been replaced predominantly by families. Not to mention, anyone looking to escape the yobs and louts that now head elsewhere, having once smudged the reputation of Sauze d’Oulx!
