Sestriere Resort & Transfer Guide

Sestriere is perhaps the most quintessential example of a purpose-built ski resort in this part of Europe. And that’s probably because it was the first resort of its kind to be built anywhere in the world. At the time, it was heralded as a masterpiece of modern design and development. Today, the resort itself splits the ski community right down the middle. If you’re out for an authentic mountain-village experience and any kind of local culture, try Borgata or Pragelato. But if you’re more about amenities, entertainment and access to great skiing than architecture and whatnot, you’ll no doubt find Sestriere very much to your liking!

 

Ski Resort Location

If you ask us, Sestriere gets too much stick for being a purpose-built resort. There are dozens of purpose-built ski haunts across the region that are no different – it’s just that Sestriere doesn’t do a good job of hiding it! And nor should it – it is what it is and that’s why so many skiers love it. It remains one of the highest resorts in Italy and occupies a prime plot on the Milky Way pass. And if the slopes were good enough for the World Alpine Ski Championships of 1997 and the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics…well, they’re probably good enough for the rest of us!

A bit like the classic seaside towns you can’t help but love, Sestriere may be a little on the tacky side, but you’ll definitely be back for more!
