Sansicario has an idyllic setting surrounded by woods and rolling hills. It is situated in the heart of the Milky Way, between Sauze d’Oulx and Sestriere. It is one of the most modern resorts in the Milky Way and has a fully pedestrianised resort centre. The centre itself is filled with classy shops, bars and restaurants. The local terrain is suitable for all, from its sunny beginner slopes to the technically challenging black runs, like the one from Mt. Fraiteve which was used in in the downhill races of the 2006 Winter Olympics.
