Sestriere was the Alps first purpose built resort developed by Fiat’s Giovanni Agnelli in the 1930’s. The resort was built for snow so is high with North West facing slopes and has very extensive snowmaking. The village sits on a broad and sunny col and benefitted from recent investment at the 2006 Winter Olympics. It is very much an international resort that is part of the famous ‘Milky Way’ ski circuit so perfect for your ski holidays this year.
Apres ski in Sestriere is varied and becomes busier at the weekends when the Turin visitors come in. The Pinky is a bar and restaurant with low sofas and classic chic Italian style. Il Caminetto is also a lively place to be. Off the slopes there are some smart shops, a fitness centre and ice rink. There is also a sports centre and pool. It is also possible to visit the town of Pragelato.
As Sestriere is part of the famous ‘Milky Way’ it offers access to a stunning 400Km of pistes.
