Nearby Ski Resorts

In addition to the interlinked Via Lattea ski resorts, a Powderhounds secret stash called Prali is a tantalising option in a secluded valley to the south east. Bardonecchia ski resort on the French border towards the Maurienne valley is only a 12 min train ride from Oulx.

In France, via the Via Lattea’s Montgenevre ski resort and near the town of Briançon, Serre Chevalier is well worth a visit (as is the sensational old town & fort in Briancon). Beyond Serre Chevalier is legendary La Grave.

Also in France, through the expensive, but convenient Frejus tunnel, the Haute Maurienne ski resorts of La Norma, Aussois, Val Cenis, Bonneval sur Arc & Valfrejus are some of the ultimate Powderhounds Gems in Europe.
