Famed for its fairytale setting it ain’t, (if that’s what you’re after, pick another resort) but what it lacks in sparkle, Sestriere more than makes up for with acres of impeccably maintained terrain, excellent off-piste and, actually,  as it’s surrounded by mountains, some rather brilliant panoramic views.

The resort, which sits at the centre of the Milky Way circuit, is linked to three main areas: Mount Sises, Mount Motta and Mount Fraiteve making it an ideal station for powderhounds. Mount Fraiteve leads into Sauze d’Oulx, a pretty village known for its wild après, Sansicario and the rest of the Milky Way playground.

The resort also offers nighttime skiing on the same floodlit runs as skied by the pros during the 2006 Winter Olympic Games – what more could you want? Pretty little village? Pah, no thanks.  Food and drink is cheaper too than in neighbouring French resorts #icingoncake #winning.
