lifts close during high winds
The closure of the lift from Borgata to Sauze means that all skiers have to use the Fraiteve lift to accsess Sauze, Sansicario and Cessna this causes queues at peak period. Also returning to Sestriere from Sauze has changed with the removal of the chair lift to Col Basset. Yes, a new lift has been erected up to Fraiteve, but it is only a TWO person, rediculous for a new lift and an important link. Huge queues at week-end. All the alterations have made Fraieve a major cross roads and it is very busy, and almost impossible to avoid.
