Vialattea ski area of Sauze and Sestriere snow machines in full swing ready for season opening

With the resorts opening this weekend (5 December), the Vialattea ski area is really gearing up for the season ahead.  At last the temperature has dropped several degrees below zero.  These conditions have given the “Sestriere Spa” the possibility to set in motion the snow machines in the main areas of Sestriere, Cesana-Sansicario, Sauze d’Oulx and Claviere.  Also in France, its “cousin” in Montgenevre is whitening the slopes. The whole area is at work to create the perfect ground to welcome ski lovers.

The first snowfalls over the past week have added to the artificial snow, and all this contributes to the amazing landscape around the ski slopes. The sharp drop in temperatures has been enthusiastically welcomed by local tourism operators.  Now we can celebrate with confidence the opening of the season, with the expectation of further snow on the way.

For those looking to get away for a pre-Christmas break, you will not only find uncrowded pistes but cheaper ski passes and low apartment rental prices. You can also benefit from reasonable flights.  Snow may limit the number of open pistes in the first week of December but by the middle of the month, the resort is normally in full swing. 

The Vialattea awaits you!
