Looking for one week of skiing Feb 16 to 23

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi there,

I am 50 year old Canadian looking for joining somebody or a group on a one week ski vacation during Feb16 to 23, 2013. Been to Zermatt in Switzerland twice in the last two years (would go again in a blink!) but for the next years, my buddies bailed out and I am all alone. I was thinking going to Sestriere , ITaly (Milky Way or Via Lattea), I even made a tentative reservation for accomodations for 3, it woould cost  a total of 450 Euro, so split in 3 would be  150 Euro each. Ski passesa are also very affordable at about 231 euro for 6 days for the whole area Sestriere – Sauze d’Oulx- Sansicario – Cesana – Oulx –Claviere – Montgenèvre.

Let me know if anybody is interested in joining or if you have any other plans for skiing during that period that I can join. I prefer  high altitude snow guarantee resorts. FYI,   Saas Fe has already 250 cm of snow!!!   Must be skier paradise there....

Cheers!

Try some of the UK forums such as snowheads and J2ski which have dedicated pages for solo skiing. Also Neilson have a page for people going solo. Milky Way a good choice for skiing, I am across the valley from Sauze and Sestriere, in Montgenevre, and I can tell you the conditions are amazing. Good luck Gerry

Thanks Volf. I appreciate your recommendations. I’ll try those websites today. Yeah, it looks like a good start of season in Europe, I’ve seen Zermatt  has 200 cm, Sestriere about 150 cm...Here in the Great White North  I have yet to see a snowflake this season and Christmas will look like Easter:  green and warm!

What’s the best way to reach Sestriere, by train? Thanks.

Fly to Turin which is the nearest airport and take the train to Oulx. Oulx serves Sestriere, Sauze and Montgenevre. Alternatively you can get the train from Milan or Paris, Oulx is on the main line between both. 4 1/2 hours from Paris by TGV. A little less from Milan. You can pick up a taxi at the train station or give Mauro a call on +39 338 405 8681. Tell him Gerry from Ski Etoile in Montgenevre recommended him. He can also pick you up from Turin. Its about 90 minutes by car. Have a great trip. Gerry
