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
