The Milky Way ("Via Lattea" in Italian and "Milky Way" in English) straddling the Franco-Italian border connects the Montgenèvre ski resort with those of Sestriere, Sauze d'Oulx and San Sicario. This is a very large area that hosted the Turin Olympic Winter Games in 2006. A few words and pictures in this blog article to find out if the ski resort is a nice idea to travel?
Milky Way / Via Lattea
The number of tracks really very important allows skiers to find shoes on their feet regardless of their level of practice. The Via Lattea allows skiing from 1300 meters altitude up to about 2600 meters for the highest area. The snow thanks to the returns of East Mediterranean creates conditions of sliding often very good. Our preference, in terms of trails, goes to the area between Borgatta and Mount Motta in Sestriere. An excellent mountain restaurant "Raggio Di Sole Chalet" in this area deserves a long haul to eat or just a drink on the terrace, in the sun wrapped under a blanket.

Ski trip in Italy
Many French skiers leave the Montgenèvre resort and go through the mountains of the moon for a day of real ski trip. If the direction of orientation is not one of your qualities, we strongly advise you to bring a map of the tracks at the risk of misplacing you. You will come across several traces of the 2006 Olympic Games, such as the bobsleigh track or the Sestriere Olympic Village. From the Italian Piedmont, Turin or Milan, or even the Rhône Alpes region in France (via the Fréjus tunnel) the motorway will leave you almost at the foot of the slopes. The Milky Way seems to us the ideal place for a great skiing holiday. as well for the exceptional quality of its tracks as thanks to the expatriation and the Italian atmosphere made of sweetness of life.
