Sestriere Ski Extras

Ski Holiday in Sestriere

An Italian Alpine village located in Val Susa just 17km from the French border, Sestriere ski resort earned its name because the original settlement is sixty Roman miles from Turin ̶ the Latin derivation is ad petram sistrariam.

With a prime position at 2035m on the powdery pass between Val Susa and Val Chisone, the population of Sestriere swells from under 1000 inhabitants off-season to over 20,000 in a typical ski season. It comprises of several small satellite villages, including Sestriere Coll at the higher reaches of the pass, Sestriere Borgata, Champlas Janvier and Champlas du Col.


The snow terrain stretches from 1350m to 2823m and there’s a cracking 400km skiable area across the wider Milky Way with a wide range of pistes for skiers of all stripes, plenty of off-piste for freeriders and terrain parks where snowboarders can pit their wits against gnarly obstacles. Sestriere’s high resort altitude and plenty of northwest facing slopes contributes to its snow reliability, but it’s also the jewel in a crown of encircling mountains which include 2850m Monte Motta, 3280m Punta Rognosa di Sestriere, 2658m Monte Sises, and 2701m Monte Fraiteve.
