Sauze Doulx

Just signed up to this forum so it might be too late for you!!
Just got back from a great week in Sauze. 5 days clear blue sky, 2 days of snow. Good runs top to bottom and more challenging runs to Sestrierre and San Siccarrio.
A board park in Sauze and Sestrierre,Night life ok but we (8skiers/boarders) were all inclusive so didn't venture far , Apart from the Village Bar straight off the end of the Homerun Piste.

Ive been to Sauze a couple of times. We always started the morning going up the Clotes 1 and 2 chairlifts, and then from there you have some lovely runs back down to where you started from, or head down to the main area with loads of bars just below that and take a chair up from there, and head right, and the runs there are lovely, Go on for quite a while.

From memory, when looking at the piste map, head right for groomers. If you get fresh snow and are there on a weekend, head to the left of the piste map and up the drag lifts, and there are a load of untouched pow runs that aren't open mon-fri to keep them fresh for the weekend skiers (if you arrive on the saturday, meaning sunday is your first day, check it out first because you wont get there before you head home the next saturday).

The runs down to sansicario are fun. Both times ive been there wasn't enough snow to get down the track to Sestrierre, so had to take the cable car down to get there. I thought the runs seemed shorter over that side, but still a lot of fun. They have a better park over there as well (i know you didn't ask, but incase it helps anyone else out).

From Sauze, you are unlikely to get past Sansicario in the Via Latte, You need lifts down to Cesena, and then back up the other side. Its a long time to be off the board, and then you will be heading back again as soon as you get there.

If you get a chance to do the Pizza night up on the slopes with night skiing, do it. We had a massive game of football on flat section, and sledging etc, before unlimited pizza, a few drinks, and then boarding down with just a head torch on. Great fun

HaHa !! Yes its now 2016 But we are off to Sauze again 31/1 for a week. A party of 4 this year staying at the Savoia Debili.
Hoping for some more snow before we arrive and Hopefully snow when we are there!! We are the ones out on the first lifts every morning and chased down off the mountains last thing by the police! Making the most of the snow.

Well if you missed out on any of that stuff I mentioned last time you were there, be sure to check it out this time. Riding down with a headtorch at night was brilliant. You could see the lights from The skiers who went in front of us were all in these neat snaking lines down the mountain, and then when the boarders set off after them it was like an anarchic disco of lights everywhere. Great fun.

If you are heading out on the 31st then you're last day on the slopes will be a Saturday, so make the most of getting the drag lifts up the far left hand side of the piste map and hitting that powder section. There was hardly anyone there when we went, it was lovely
