Experience the snow in Italy, in the heart of one of the biggest ski areas in the Alps

You'll never forget a holiday in Via Lattea. This Franco-Italian ski area is in the heart of the Alps. With over 200 slopes served by around sixty lifts, you can experience all the mountains have to offer.

Discover skiing Italian style

Nestling at the foot of the mountains as its name indicates, Piedmont is the best known region of northern Italy for fans of winter sports. It is there that Via Lattea, one of the biggest alpine ski areas offers 400 kilometres of vertiginous slopes and marked pistes. In 2006, the Winter Olympics were held there. Now, it's your turn to be champions as a family, on the other side of the Alps.

Linked to Via Lattea by the Pattemouche-Anfiteatro funicular railway and with 50 kilometres of pistes, the Pragelato ski resort offers a wide range of activities. Every kind of skiing is available there: Nordic in the former Olympic stadium, alpine and cross-country on the powder snow. Snowshoe trekking in the Parco Naturale Val Troncea and figures on the ice at the skating rink are also on the programme for your holiday. The Italian winter sports experience attracts athletes from all over the world.

Via Lattea, the Milky Way of the Alps

As you hurtle down the slopes of Via Lattea, that are at altitudes of up to 2,700 m, you'll feel as if the sky and the snow have become one. In fact, it's no coincidence that the Italian name for this ski area means Milky Way, because the stars are never far away. Sometimes, they even appear in the eyes of skiers.

And from the top of the ski jumps in Pragelato, you can build on your achievements in the air, but also on the powder snow, thanks to cross-country skiing. With its runs that range from 90 to 250 metres and its width of 6 metres, it is famous as one of the most technical in the Alps. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced skier, the instructors from the Italian cross-country skiing school will supervise your progress.

With 900 snow cannons spread over the entire area, your enjoyment is guaranteed all winter long, whatever the weather.
