Perfect conditions

Conditions here in Sauze d’Oulx at the moment are fantastic. We have clear blue skies and plenty of fresh snow, it just doesn’t get any better. Unfortunately I’m having a forced day off today as I broke my brand new skis yesterday, at least that’s what I was telling everyone in the bar last night.

I managed to take a chunk out of them on the top surface in a high speed crash. Again that was the story last night but in reality I simply crossed tips and went flying just after I’d got off the lift, most embarrassing!!

The temperature today is higher than it has been over the last few days but it isn’t worryingly high. The skiing yesterday was the best that I’d done all season. It didn’t take long for the off piste to get tracked out but there was still fun to be had on and off the runs.

The forecast is for sun all week with a light breeze. The temperature above 2000mts is set to remain just below the freezing level so it really is a glorious week for those that are here.

For those coming out next week the sun looks like it could be staying around for you. It is set to get a little warmer from the 7th.

I’ve added photos from yesterday to the winter 10/11 album on the facebook page but here a few to wet your appetite.

Notice how busy the slopes are!

Great service from James prior to arriving. Really went above and beyond. The rental shop was ideally situated at the bottom of the lift. Can't wait to return!

S. Warhurst

We are a family of 6 and James and Sinead at Sauzeonline.com were brilliant in organising skis, lessons and restaurants. Really helpful and friendly - a pleasure to deal with. We plan to come back next year using Sauzeonline for everything.

D. Bonfield

The transfers we booked were professional and hassle free notwithstanding our late arrival. For the return we were greeted on time with great service. The ski hire was also of excellent quality.

A. McCormick

Just wanted to say that we had a great week and to thank you for all your assistance in arranging everything for us. Roll on next year!

Sauzeonline provide great value ski and snowboard hire from a selection of shops in good locations throughout the town – so we were able to find shops suitable for all our group (not all of whom were staying in the same place). James was also incredibly helpful in resolving an issue one of our group had with his snowboard hire [and arranged a full refund]. We would definitely recommend Sauzeonline both in terms of excellent value and service.
