About the Milky Way ski area
A magnificent area with over 400kms of pistes with excellent skiing for all grades in spectacular scenery.
Beginners slopes: most of the beginners slopes fan out in an arc from the ski school meeting place in the centre of Sestriere with easy runs from the two beginner lifts and the Jolly with two further drag lifts, ideal for first timers.
Intermediate slopes: for Crystal Ski intermediates, the skiing is on two main areas, Banchetta and Sises, offering plenty of choice from short mogul fields to long wide runs for cruising. An added bonus to the 21 lifts in the immediate Sestriere area is the amazing 89 lifts on the extensive Milky Way.
Expert slopes: the huge bowl of the Amfiteatro offers excellent skiing and the black runs at the top of Motta and Sises provide the expert with plenty of skiing. The famous Kandahar Slalom and Kandahar Banchetta runs are used in World Championship races.
