Club Holiday to Sestriere, Italy

Sunday 21st January 2018 for 7 nights


Tour Operator: Crystal

Resort information from the Crystal web site:

Sestriere is renowned for its great conditions: it's high up, faces north-west and has extensive snow-making equipment. There are lots of open runs on the local slopes, plus some off-piste among a handful of tree-lined slopes. Head out to the Milky Way ski area and you’ll get 400km of piste that’ll take you to Sauze d’Oulx, Claviere and to Mongenèvre in France. Sestriere village is quieter than neighbouring Sauze d’Oulx, but there’s still a good choice of bars if you fancy a few drinks after a day on the mountain.

The village was the first purpose-built resort in the Italian Alps, improved in 2006 by the Winter Olympics being held there. For something special off the slopes, try your skating skills on the open-air ice rink with views of the mountains.
