I am very disappointed with the lift system, piste grooming and poor management of lifts in the area. We stayed in Sestriere. This village has a lot of accommodation. But there are really only 2 lifts (a 4 man chair and a 8 man telecabin)...More

Sestriere has a lot of accommodation so a lot of visitors, but it has not enough lifts. As a whole, Via Lattea's lifts are small, old and slow. Queue is a major problem everywhere, not just Sestriere. Since the lifts are old / low specification,...More

Skiing area where everybody would find slopes meeting one's needs. Long routes , great views, one can stick to one area or travel from one to another up to France. On a 6 day pass there is one day of skiing in France included.

Loved the resort, the people, the pistes, accommodation - everything. Much prefer Italy to France. Would definitely recommend 😉

Having not gone here to ski since I started nearly 30 years ago I was pleasantly surprised how much better the area is than it's reputation for poor snow and slow lifts. It is quite a big area, enough to keep even diehard skiers busy...More

The Vialattea offers an impressively sized ski area, covering numerous resorts up to and even across the French border. There are runs to suit all abilities, although the balance of the pistes seems to lean strongly towards intermediate skiers, with many wide red runs. I...More

First trip to the area and thoroughly enjoyed skiing. Most days slopes became relatively empty as the day progressed. Lift passes are not expensive - potentially reflects that the lift infrastructure is not as modern as other resorts I have stayed at. Two button lifts...More
