Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Oulx (1100 m),1 hour to Turin by train, is the ideal locality in which to practise both winter (skiing, snowboarding,) as well as summer (hiking, mountain biking, climbing, horse riding, bowls) sports. In winter offers the skier one of the most extensive ski areas in Europe: Sestriere, Sauze d'Oulx and Sansicario make up the core of the Vialattea (Milky Way), which continues through to the French resort of Montgenevre The Via Lattea has 140 ski-runs which total 400 km in length, served by 92 lifts ranging from 1350m to 2800m. The vastness and variety of the area will satisfy the most demanding skiers, as well as those that are approaching this world of skiing for the first time. In the summer, Oulx is the ideal starting point for excursions on foot, by mountain bike, motorbike or four-wheel drive. The Upper Susa Valley stages numerous mountain bike competitions, all of which take place in the vicinity of Oulx: the famous 'Via dei Saraceni' in Sauze d'Oulx in July, the 'Sestrierissima' in Sestriere in August. Oulx also has tennis courts, a gym and a golf course. Just ten minutes drive away in Bardonecchia there is an indoor swimming pool. For the less sporty, nearby Briançon in France is a beautiful place to visit and its also easy to get to thanks to the mini-bus service that leaves from Oulx Railway Station. You can also visit and admire a number Roman ruins, for example in Susa there is the Arco di Augusto and the Roman Arena. The nearest airport is Turin just one hour's drive from Oulx.
