Review 04/12/2006
Beginners - There's a couple of really nice long runs after the initial nursery slope experience, one is easy to find the other is via the cable car at the top of Souze D'Oulxa.

Intermediates - Lots of runs to challenge the soul and test your map reading skills as if you’re not careful you can end up on a Black.

Be aware the resorts from Sestriere are inter-connected by some of the longest steepest drag lifts I've ever encountered and are a complete non starter if you have children in tow or are a Snowboarder (yes they really are that bad). Also it’s worth noting that you start at 2000 meters and go up, with most of the slope access via chairlift it can be a very cold trip up the mountain.

Review 04/04/2007
When the lifts are open to the neighbouring valleys the Italian Milky way is an intermediates paradise! Anyone who has 1 or 2 weeks skiing under their belts will find this area fun and extremely flattering on their ego as there are some very easy reds! Perhaps not the place for complete beginners though, as there are not many blue runs.

Sestriere, February 2013 18/03/2013
After visiting Sestriere in February 2013, I wanted to go back. The resort provides a good skiing school with good instructors. The instructors take you through runs, and if you are a beginner, they are very good at teaching you how to ski. Once you get to intermediate level, the instructors stop teaching you as much and you start learning by practice. The runs they take you through are fun and long. It may be daunting to see the colour black on a run during a lesson, but the instructor will control your pace and make sure you aren't in very deep water. The ski resort has a ski park, with quite good jumps and there is the Olympic run, a black run used for alpine skiing during the Sestriere Winter Olympics which is thrilling to go down. Almost all runs end up within 5 meters of a lift, meaning you can hop right off the slope, onto a lift, and onto another slope. The slopes are maintained well and are groomed, the lower ones at least, although the black slopes are sometimes not groomed as much. Not grooming the blacks creates moguls, giving you a challenge. I would recommend this resort to everything from high intermediates to beginners.
