Great position on the Milky Way
Small resort with limited facilities
The Milky Way iks a spectacular ski area stretching across theItalian border, but having stayed in three of the seven main resort bases I know that most of them are located at one end, or the other, of the area making it hard to see it all - you need a good day to get all the way across and back.
Step forward Sansicario, a quiet little purpose built resort I visited which was low rise, well designerd, and since the 2006 Winter Olympics has got more going for it - although it's still much quieter than the main centres like Sauze d'Oulx, Sestriere and Montgenevre.
But i didn't mind that, and it was great to get up every morning with this hugwe ski area on your doorstep, knowing you could reach every corner of it comfortably from your central popsition. You also had the local slopes to yourself for the first few hours till the firsat skiers arrived from the neighbouring giant resorts.
