Cesana Sansicario


Cesana San Sicario is a ski resort strategically placed as the starting point for all the other resorts in the vast Milky Way (Via Lattea) ski area, allowing it to be connected to the Italian resorts of Sestriere, Sauze d'Oulx, Cesana Sansicario, Pragelato and Claviere, and Montgenèvre in France.

The Cesana SanSicario ski area is located in Piedmont in the highest part of the Susa Valley, right next to the French border. It is a paradise for skiers who can ascend to the summit of Mont Fraiteves at 2700 metres before skiing down on beautiful winding slopes amidst larch and fir forests. The ski runs have good sun exposure and are suitable for beginners.
