Sauze D’Oulx

“Sauze d’Oulx is the liveliest of the five villages that form the 400km Milky Way ski area, which links France and Italy. It’s full of long, quiet slopes – a mix of lower, tree-lined slopes, off-piste, and higher, more open runs. These higher runs have amazing panoramic views of the mountains bordering France. Your lift pass not only covers next door’s Sestriere and Sansicario, but also Claviere and the French resort of Montgenèvre. It’s a great Milky Way base for intermediate skiers as its runs are predominantly red – so it’s also a good pick for snowboarders.
The resort town spreads widely across with a car-free centre. Renowned for being popular with the Brits there’s a very busy après scene and nightlife – ideal for those that love to party into the early hours. The resort has an excellent ski bus service that follows four routes around the village taking you up to the Clotes and Sportinia lifts”- Crystal Ski.

Sauze is a fab resort nestled in the Milky Way ski area. An unsung hero of the alps, we heard a rumour from our friends based out there that they have retained the snowfall incredibly well. This means heading there in January is a sure fire choice for snow! Sauze, unlike its more modern counter part- Sestriere, Sauze has traditional style buildings, quaint classic Italian bars and restaurants mixed in with a lively atmosphere. We have included a link above to ensure you get the best deals available via Crystal Ski!

Gressoney

“Gressoney-La-Trinité is a village at the foot of Monte Rosa, tourist destination for every season. It has much history in its past and a weird balance between modern tourist centre and old mountain village enriched by typical walser buildings.The marvellous Punta Jolanda area allows the skiers to discover the inside tour, where the historical “Gialla” slope stands up, this is a very gripping piste reserved to the most experienced skiers.”
SSSSHHHHHHHHHHHH, Don’t tell everyone, we are just sharing this with you, our most awesome ski and snowboard pals so we will share the best industry secrets with you, but when it comes to the Monte Rosa, you must tell noone. Go to Gressoney and receive all the gifts this resorts gives; quiet piste, rich culture, picturesque Forrest, magical mountains and delicious mountain restaurants. Peace and quiet is so underrated, if you want to steer clear of crowds and tourists, head there Monday-Friday in January and enjoy! NO PICTURES ON SOCIAL MEDIA PLEASE!
