Newest Review: ... across to Montgenevre in France. We did attept to get there one day, got quite far, over to Claviere, which is beside Montgenevre, but time was against us. We did ski though Sansicario and Sestriere and the skiing was great. Some other reviewers criticised Sauze D'Oulx as not having enough difficult runs. Granted there were no cliff face double black diamonds to contend with but there ... more

I recently spent my ski holiday in Sauze D'Oulx. I have to say that I thought it was very good, not excellent, but very good. The slopes were empty, which was a massive bonus, as there was no waiting for lifts and you could go hell for leather on the runs. Not sure if this was a direct knock on effect of the credit crunch, but to be honest I was not complaining. However, the consequences of this were that the town was also pretty quiet, so the apres ski was a lot more subdued than I have usually experienced. But then the apres ski is always what you make it yourself! Sauze D'Oulx is part of the milky way (via lattea in Italian!) ski resort, which is a ... Read the complete review

This site is an overall fantastic one for the average skier, skiers who prefer more of a challenge should look elsewhere. however the red runs are fantastic and the few black runs leaves a lot to be desired but are truly black runs and are a tough challenge for a weaker skier. My experience of the area is on a school ski trip ( 4 times in fact to this area) the local shops are rather traditional and the whole village is a true beautiful alpine area. the staff at local bars and ski schools are extremely friendly. there are two main ski schools at Sauze. if i were you i would go with the group with wooden huts further away from the restaurant with a painting of a polar ...

Sauze D’oulx was disappointing for us. We had been to Livigno twice and thoroughly enjoyed it, so we decided to stay in Italy this time also. The resort doesn’t come near to matching the delightful Livigno. Firstly, it is a disastrous resort for beginners and advanced skiers. For beginners, you have to take a long and steep chairlift before you even reach the snow. This can be intimidating, particularly if you have never taken a chair lift before. The blue runs are very basic and few and far between. For intermediates there are a lot of red runs, which is great if you are of that grade. For advanced skiers there is only one black run on the Sauze D’Oulx side of the ... Read the complete review

Sauze d'Oulx is absolutely delightful at the moment! The snow is lovely and soft and the runs are very nicely looked after. If you are looking for a cheapish destination to have a smooth ski then this is certainly the place to be! It is within easy access of a lot of other skiing locations. I stayed in a place called Claviere which is either a 20 minute coach ride or a 1 hour ski to Sauze d'Oulk. It is also a gondola ride away from Sestriere, which is being lined up as a winter olympic ski resort in the not too distant future. It is also near the Milky way which is a small cluster of resorts pushed together for a very nice ski. ... Read the complete review

Sauze d'Oulx forms part of the Milky Way ski area, which includes Sestriere and streches all the way to Montgenevre in France. As a ski area it's huge and you probably won't get to see a fraction of it in a week. If you are lucky your tour operator may run a day trip to Montgenevre which is worth visiting, if only for a change in scenery. The slopes immeadiately above Sauze are predominantly red (intermediate) runs varying between long sweeping cruises and plunging drops with plenty to keep an intermediate happy. Experts need to go a bit further afield to find decent black runs and even then there aren't a great number of them - it's not ... Read the complete review
