With over 400km of skiable pistes, this large ski area ranges between 1,350m and 2,825m in altitude. La Voie Lactée is made up of seven stations: Montgenèvre, Claviere, Cesana Torinese, Sestriere, Pragela, Sansicario and Sauze D’oulx. Sharing a border in the Italian county of Piedmont, La Voie Lactée benefits from a great mixture of French and Italian foods. There are 30 high-altitude restaurants throughout the area, which allow skiers to enjoy long sunny lunches without having to ski down the pistes.
La Voie Lactée tends to attract the rich and famous. The streets are filled with tourists and visitors shopping in the small boutiques and dining in luxury restaurants. Whether it’s because of the 244 ski slopes to choose from in the winter or the opportunity to play on the world’s highest 18-hole golf course in the summer, Vialattea is an incredibly popular destination, and particularly Sestriere.
Having hosted the 2006 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, the resorts are equipped with an abundance of state-of-the-art facilities (69 ski-lifting facilities). The Pattemouch-Anfitaetro cable car connects all the stations in the area with great speed and allows every village to benefit from the grand scale of this resort. Each village offers a great variety of runs in the winter, with 30 green runs, 54 blue run and 118 red runs throughout the area. Not only does La Voie Lactée offer a great and vast ski landscape, it attracts a great mix of skiers.
