fun on the slopes Our Alps are the dreamland of all alpine skiing enthusiasts, encompassing the Vialattea area (Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, Clavière, Cesana-Sansicario, Pragelato and Monginevro resorts), the Bardonecchia area (Jafferau, Melezet and Campo Smith resorts), and the region of Pragelato (Clot dla soma, Conca del Sole). Thrilling slopes, scenic valleys, and sunny plateaus provide 500 kilometres (310 miles) of pistes catering to all needs, from beginners to expert skiers. There are modern, safe and fast ski lifts, artificial snow facilities, outstanding ski schools, playgrounds for children and everything else you may need for an enjoyable and energetic holiday.

The cross-country skiing tracks are open from the first November snow to the long, sunny days of April, unwinding through charming scenery in the tranquillity of the mountains. Pragelato is the ideal place, well known to amateurs and professional athletes thanks to its legendary loops in the Val Troncea Park; but you’ll also find well-kept tracks in Bardonecchia, Clavière and Sestriere.

Snowshoes are the perfect way to enjoy the peaceful ambiance of mountain forests, where noise is muffled by the snow. Nowadays, this traditional footwear is lighter and more technically advanced, granting everyone a pleasurable experience. You may enjoy a nice walk in the snow along the many signposted tracks or simply venture on your own.

Snowboard enthusiasts will find this the ideal spot for some serious fun: Bardonecchia boasts the only Olympic Half Pipe in Europe, on a par with Nagano, Salt Lake City and Vancouver. If you enjoy freestyling, this is just the place to be: there are five dedicated snow parks in Bardonecchia, Clavière, Sauze d’Oulx, Sansicario and Sestriere with kickers and moguls of all sizes and shapes.


Off-piste lovers can test their skills on our many steep, snowy slopes. If you don’t feel fit enough to tread uphill with the aid of the traditional sealskins, don’t worry: you may use a ski lift or cableway. In any case, offpiste skiing is incredibly exciting - and safe too - thanks to our information service and skilled guides.

sports for everyone For those with special needs, there is accommodation here adapted to all requirements and with highly qualified staff for to help take part in sports and recreations in total safety. The valuable experience of the Paralympics in 2006 has resulted in an offer specifically for the disabled: here the

thrills and satisfactions of sport are available to everyone. Specialised schools and expert guides ensure that a whole variety of sports can be learnt and enjoyed: tandem ski, uniski, dualski and piloted skiing.



Our villages can be enjoyed by everyone: groups of friends, older folk, singles and couples... everyone gets a welcome. So whoever you are, here you’ll find what you need. If you’re not taking part in the sport, or have come to the end of a day’s skiing, you can spend your time browsing among the fashionable shops and in the typical local stores with their warm atmosphere, strolling through the picturesque neighbourhoods.

But if you want to enjoy the spectacular nature to be found in the valley, go deep into the snowy landscapes where you can enjoy romantic sunsets... or throw snowballs. An exciting evening will be promised by one of the many discos in the area where you can expend all your energy to the beat of the music, or by going to one of the numerous occasions programmed: concerts, shows and other events will ensure even more enjoyment for your holiday.


Children have special needs, so to make sure that holiday is a pleasure and relaxing for the whole family, the destination chosen must be able to meet these needs. The ski resorts offer a wide range of activities for kids: ski schools with specialised instructors, ski clubs and “conveyor belt” lift facilities are all ideal for children who want to learn to ski. A lot of entirely original sport activities are available for the youngest: horse riding on the snow, archery with targets in the shape

of animals blending in perfectly with the woods, and even volleyball and five-a-side soccer on snow-covered playing fields. Entertainment comes from fun parks, kindergartens and various adventure playgrounds including one which has a reproduction Red Indian village. And then plenty of laughs at Bardonecchia with snowtubing, a descent down the snow on special ‘rubber boats’. 17



A warm welcome

Well being


Bar hopping...

The area has a proud tradition of hospitality. You’ll feel at home everywhere, thanks to our modern and well-equipped facilities, catering to all needs. You may choose between luxurious hotels, quaint mountain chalets, comfortable self contained lodgings, charming farmhouses and so on, accommodating 18,000 guests of all kinds - families, parties of friends, couples, corporate parties.

After a day of skiing, there’s nothing better than unwinding in a spa facility: sauna, massage, detox, body treatments and much more will make your stay a truly relaxing experience. After a dip in the pool or a Turkish bath you may also enjoy some novelty treatments, like wine therapy or chocolate therapy.

The Piemonte region is justly renowned for its fine food, and our Alps are no exception: during your stay, you’ll have the opportunity of tasting mouth watering dishes made with the freshest local ingredients. The most famous Alpine dish is polenta (maize porridge), usually served with game stew or tasty mountain cheeses, like the violet-scented plaisentif. Also not to be missed: glara and cajette (both made of potatoes), wholemeal bread soup and gofri (traditional waffles).

Whether you drink a vin brulé (mulled wine) or a rich hot chocolate, sip an aperitivo with nibbles or spend the evening in a lively café, there is plenty of choice. Restaurants, cafeterias, clubs, pubs and wine bars are plentiful but a traditional meal in a mountain refuge is the best way to enjoy the snowy winter atmosphere.


Don’t miss the chance for a fantastic holiday. We’ve already thought of everything: you just book the offer best tailored to you at

The wines of Piemonte are among the best in the world. Val Susa and Val Chisone boast some excellent DOC wines, such as Avanà and Ramie, while regional wines include Barolo, Barbaresco and Erbaluce di Caluso. To keep warm during the long winter nights, you should not miss the delectable liqueurs of the area, made with mountain herbs, such as Genepì and Serpoul, whose secret ingredients are passed on generation after generation.

It is also perfect for trips with kids, where families can embark on the many activities in total safety and peace of mind.

You can try out canoeing or rafting along the rushing streams, or play golf in the exquisite courses at Sestriere, ClavièreMonginevro and Pragelato (which have 18, 9+9 and 9 holes respectively) or in the practice golf course at Bardonecchia. Soon there will be a course also at Sauze d’Oulx. If you enjoy walking, there are plenty of treks lasting one or more days through glorious Alpine scenery, ideal for every level of skill.

You may want to check out Sauze d’Oulx, Bardonecchia and Cesana adventure parks. And if you’re brave enough, there’s some novelty thrills: crossing the Sauze d’Oulx or the Cesana-Clavière Tibetan (rope) Bridge, the longest in the world, and the Tyrolean cable car which crosses the San Gervasio gorge.


Torino in & around there is nothing like it Architectural jewels, art galleries, antique shows, world class museums, royal palaces, fortresses, castles, fascinating festivals and gastronomic delights: this land offers great treasures as well as cosy, everyday pleasures.

Torino and its province are also well known for a relaxed and epicurean lifestyle: the area is famed for its delicious chocolate concoctions, to be sampled in one of the many historical cafÊs, for the aperitivo ritual, an enjoyable pre-dinner habit that drives crowds to the bars, and for its very fine wine and food - a treat that will make your stay truly unforgettable.
