Sestriere, a ski resort in Italy, is part of the Via Lattea skiing area. It’s in fact a very popular ski destination in the Italian Alps. Together with the surrounding towns, it’s an ideal spot for freeride, with slopes facing all directions.

I propose to you an ideal ski weekend with friends, your couple or with other nice people. Since the program is flexible, we will do heliski on the nicest day. During the chosen day, we will have 2 heliski drops on beautiful summits. In addition, on the other 2 days we will explore different areas of Sestriere on skis. I can take you skiing in the forest but also in open virgin slopes with great panoramas. You are in Italy!

Some of the highlights of this trip include:
– 2 beautiful heliski drops during the best day, that we will choose
– The loan of airbag backpack
– The best freeride ski, each day in a different place
– Well located accommodation, with a warm atmosphere and delicious food
– Easy access: TGV and then transfer with my minibus
– No stress: we transfer together in the minibus, and you can rent the necessary equipment if you don’t have it
