Larus Viaggi: the best way to experience Italy. At your service since 1984!


Italian resort of Sestriere is located on a hill of the same name, at an altitude of 2035 meters above sea level, in the heart of the Western Alps. The resort is located on the border with France, in the heart of the largest ski region in the world called “Milky Way” (Via Lattea). This is where rich and famous come to vacation and ski the slopes of two countries: Italy and France. The resort is famous for its numerous competitions held here during the Olympic Games in 2006. Perfectly groomed and comfortable runs are laid among amazing deciduous forest.

Well-developed infrastructure of the resort offers luxury hotels, comfortable apartments, camping, villas, many bars, restaurants, night clubs, discos, and entertainment centers - all to make sure that guests could have fun and relax in this fashionable resort.

The resort is divided into three ski areas: Monte Sises, Monte Banchetta and a common area with a French resort Sauze d'Oulx - Fraiteve. Using a single ski pass, you can ski all three areas. Runs of varying difficulty are suitable for skiers of all skill levels, but you should take note that there are not that many blue runs, but predominantly red and black ones.

The maximum skiing height is 2,824 meters with a vertical drop of 789 meters. There are almost never any problems with snow here. Snowmaking system is used on the lower sections. The total length of runs is 400 kilometers.

The resort is equipped with 46 T-bar and 38 chair lifts, one wagon and five cabins.

Professional skiers will love an interesting descent from the top of Sises. It is also used for many competitions, including the Olympic Games and the World Championships. This run is also available for night skiing because it is well lit. At the top of Monte Sota at an altitude of 2823 meters you will find a lot of red and black runs. From the top of mount Mott there is a black run that leads to Sestriere. And of course we want to mention a black run from the top of Banchette, which often holds famous competitions in freestyle.

Intermediate level skiers will find suitable the slopes of the ski area Motta. There are plenty of red runs here going down to Borgata. Interesting runs are also on the slope of Sisses in sectors Sansicario, Clavier and Sauze d'Oulx. Red runs are rather difficult enough, but they will give you a unique experience with a double portion of adrenaline.

For beginners we recommend easy runs on the lower portions of the sectors Sestriere, Sansicario and Sauze d'Oulx.

The resort offers a wide range of possibilities for other kinds of winter activities. There are trails for cross-country skiing, you can try heli-skiing, off-piste skiing, skiing safari, paragliding, snowshoeing or ice skating. The sports center has a swimming pool, a gym, tennis courts and a sauna.

Sestriere has four ski schools. The biggest of them is the ski school Scuola Nazionale Sci Sestriere, where 1509 the most experienced instructors conduct both group and individual lessons for children and adults. Here, you will find lessons of alpine skiing, snowboarding and telemarking.

In a new, modern ski school Scuola di sci Sestriere Extreme there are 40 instructors that teach adults and kids snowboarding, alpine skiing and cross-country skiing.

For younger guests starting at 2 years old there is a kindergarten Asilo Neve. Children from 6 years old can also go to a ski school.
