Sauze d’Oulx is home to wide open slopes and arguably the best mountain nightlife in Italy. Better yet, the atmosphere in resort is cheerful, and the prices are generally quite low when compared to the top French and Swiss destinations.

The ski domain is quite extensive with around 300km of pistes, not to mention easy links to another 100km of terrain over in the Milky Way ski area. In particular, Sauze offers a bounty of slopes perfect for intermediate skiers.

Beginners and seasoned experts won’t find as much to love here, but the resort still has plenty of virtues. There is a good mix of woodland runs for off-piste skiers, a snow park and its north west-facing slopes hold the snow quite well into the later months of the season. The mountain also enjoys a reputation for being generally uncrowded, making the pistes excellent for leisurely cruising – great for families and groups of friends alike.

Après-ski in Sauze is lively and varied, with many different bars offering great-value beverages and friendly service. There are also a number of more upmarket wine and cocktail bars that tend to get going after dinner. The mountain restaurants are also quite diverse with good standards of both Italian and European cuisine.

There are good road and rail links with Turin airport, which is approximately 1.5 hours away. One can also catch the train from St Pancras to the nearby station of Oulx with a change in Paris.

Within the town itself, one can walk between amenities or make use of the free bus service.
Whether you’re after a quiet snifter or a more vibrant venue, Sauze d’Oulx has some wonderful establishments to enjoy.

For a peaceful drink after a long day on the slopes, the upmarket Il Lampione in the old town is the place to go – they have a laid-back ambiance and an excellent selection of beers and wines. The Scotch bar in the hotel Stella Alpina is also a great bet!

For a more rowdy vibe, the Irish bar Paddy McGinty’s is an excellent choice, as is the Ghost pub which is located near the lifts and has a great atmosphere. Grotta, meanwhile, has some of the cheapest beers in the resort, while Max’s Cafe boasts four-hour happy hours and live football on the telly.
Sauze d’Oulx isn’t the best place for non-skiing activities, but there are some lovely pastimes to shake things up.
