Sauze d'Oulx Resort Info
Sauze d'Oulx skiing
As one of the major resorts on the Milky Way ski area, Sauze d'Oulx offers direct access to the biggest fully linked ski area in Italy, with 400km of pistes. An intermediate's paradise, the area also caters to beginners and advanced skiers, though with perhaps a little less choice. Tree-lined runs around the village are perfect if the weather sets in, and there's also a good amount of higher, snow-sure pistes. An expedition to Sestriere, Sansicario, Claviere and as far as Montgenevre in France is possible on the Milky Way ski pass.
As rough guide, an intermediate would be doing very well to ski 40km daily so the ski area will keep most entertained for at least a week, with enough left over for a return visit next time!
Sauze d'Oulx ski resort
The resort of Sauze d'Oulx gained itself a somewhat unwanted reputation as the booze capital of the Alps but in recent years it has improved and there is now a good mix of accommodation to suit all tastes. Some of the more "budget" options have limited party sizes to ensure large rowdy groups don't invade completely, and some of the higher-end hotels have added some serious luxury.
The resort has an attractive, traffic free centre with cobbled streets and traditional old buildings. Further out, things are more functional but choosing a base here means you can avoid the late night noise from the still extensive nightlife scene. Yes, Sauze is still one of the Alps' premier destinations for partygoers and if you like wild apres and nightlife then Sauze will suit you!
A good choice of restaurants with some high quality choices if you're pointed in the right direction by your rep, and if the wild partying isn't your thing then a more relaxed night is still possible here. A great all-rounder that has something for everyone.

Snow Overview - Italy (snow news updated 30-Mar-2017)
Thursday 30th march saw largely sunny, spring conditions right around the Italian ski fields. On piste snow is behaving exactly how we would expect for this time of year with firm icy conditions in the morning, turning slushy and soft as the day progresses. The best conditions are still to be found in Cervinia (30/210cm) chiefly due to huge altitude range offered by the ski area. Elsewhere the skiing is still surprisingly good on piste. Off-piste options remain limited however.
In the forecast, a varied mix of rain and snow is expected this weekend. Cloud cover will be abundant with snow falling mostly around The Matterhorn, in the Monterosa ski area and to a lesser extent in the Aosta Valley resorts. The rain snow limit will move between 2200 metres up to 2700 metres.
European Weather Outlook
It has been a fairly pleasant start to the spring ski season in The Alps with mostly sunny skies dominating the weather pattern. However this weekend will see shift away from this pattern, wide spread cloud, rain and even thunderstorms are forecast right around the main Alps range. The rain snow limit will vary widely between 2200 metres all the way up to 2900 metres.
For those heading out over the Easter break, don’t fear. The unstable weather should pass by Monday, leaving behind clear sunny conditions. You won’t be skiing powder, but on piste conditions will be fun and forgiving. Finding the best conditions will be a matter of finding the right altitude on the slope for the resort you are in.
