Sansicario

Sansicario

sansicario

Sansicario is a quiet little resort on the huge Milky Way circuit with excellent access to 400km of skiing. It’s perfectly positioned at the centre of a huge, natural bowl, offering mixed skiing and good connections to Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx and Claviere.

As one of the main host resorts of the 2006 Turin Olympics, Sansicario received substantial investment to modernise the lifts and add extra snowmaking. The benefits of this investment are still there today for groups to enjoy, making this a convenient and snow-sure resort.

It’s totally traffic free so the village is relaxing and safe, an ideal choice for school groups. Evening entertainment is quiet in Sansicario with a choice of in-house activities including games evenings and quizzes. Alternatively our coach groups can make the short transfer to Claviere for ice-skating and Karaoke.

Skiing

The skiing is distinguished by scenic runs through larch woods and long reds all the way to the village. The links to the Milky Way, one of the biggest circuits in the world, are now very simple. Pass through Sestriere with its World Cup pedigree and massive scope and you’ll find Sauze d’Oulx with its high bowl and long, sunny intermediate runs. All the different villages have a good mixture of skiing in their own right but all offer friendly, recreational skiing with the laid back style typical of Italy.

Groups receive the Milky Way lift-pass with a one-day extension into Montgenèvre included for free.
