Ski Holiday 8th  - 15th Mar 2020

SESTRIERE 2020

This Years Skiing Holiday to Sestriere went really well with some Great Snow conditions and lots of Sun. To that end We are looking at doing it again next year. Hopefully we will get a big Group to go (So bring  wives/girlfriends/boyfriends and friends), a few single rooms are also available for solo Skiers if not wanting to share.

So the Ball is in your Court if you would like to give it a go as a few of us are all going again.

Dates will be Sun 8th Mar 2020 for 1 week (2 weeks after Half term for Schools). We will be going to Sestriere in Italy again with Crystal Ski (Thomson) (Link HERE) (As it offers Great resort level skiing with guaranteed snow, Resort height is over 2000 meters)

We are booking the Du Col Hotel again this Year which is a Half Board, Ski in Ski out hotel with secure heated ski/boots lockers, offering excellent food (Served with free Red and White wine) and has its own popular Bar (open to the Public) with Entertainment Nightly.

However there are lots of Hotels around and not just for Crystal Ski as Inghams, Neilsons etc.. do similar packages to the same location or everything can be booked separately (Equipment hire and passes are priced reasonably).

We are going back to Sestriere again next year as it offers lots of skiing in the various resorts, and has some very good slopes for all types of skiers. The Area pass gives access to all of the Milky way and also one Day in France (Mongenevre).

(See the above piste Map for the Milky way Area).

Sestriere is in the Middle of the Milky Way which offers 400km of slopes linked by lifts to other ski resorts including: Sauze d'Oulx, Sansicario, Claviere and Mongenevre in France, So for the Experienced, We can visit the other resorts with the Area passes.
