Sestriere is among the earliest purpose-built ski resorts in the Italian Alps. It's also one of the highest sitting resorts in the Milky Way ski area at 2,035 metres. It has fantastic snow conditions thanks in part to its high altitude and north-west facing slopes. Sestriere gained international recognition as it hosted the World Cup Ski races back in February1997 and the World Winter Olympics in 2006. As part of the Milky Way ( also commonly known as the Vialattea), Sestriere has access to up to 400 kilometres of pistes across a range of difficulties and suitable for all ski ability levels.

Where Can I buy a Sestriere Ski pass?
You can buy your Sestriere ski pass from any of the ticket offices or ticket machines below the lifts at the resort. It is a relatively small resort so either of the ticket points is hard to miss. There are ticket offices in the resort centre, at the end of the row of shops facing the slopes, as well as the bottom of the Fraiteve gondola. The main ski pass office is located in Piazza Agnelli.
