Conosco Sestriere da molti anni. Ieri e Sabato sono stato a sciare. La neve era ottima per qualità e, come quasi dappertutto in questo periodo, abbondante. Il tempo era splendido. Il mio giudizio quindi non è influenzato da condizioni sfavorevoli, anzi. Le piste sono preparate ottimamente e almeno al mattino questo garantisce delle sciate favolose. Al pomeriggio l'elevato numero di passaggi su un'area sciabile tutto sommato limitata ha reso la neve lucida e scivolosa, al punto che verso le due ho smesso di sciare. Quest'anno ho notato che le piste specie in Banchetta non vengono più battute su tutta la loro larghezza, in alcuni tratti (vedi il plateau di Banchetta) solo per metà. I pendii sono sempre meravigliosi, in poche altre località si può sciare altrettanto bene e "tanto". Impianti. In questi anni ho notato che il numero degli impianti viene ridotto sempre di più col risutato che nelle ore centrali, le migliori per sciare, si passa più tempo in coda che in discesa. La seggiovia Afiteatro chiusa poi è una vera vergogna, i perdii con la neve più bella perchè più all'ombra hanno come risalita un modesto skilift con portata ridicola. Uno è costretto a scendere fino a Borgata su uno stradone ghiacciato e affolato all'inverosimile dove non ci si diverte e si rischia la collisione ogni momento. Il problema degli impianti soppressi o chiusi e delle code eterne si ripete in tutta l'area con conseguenti code, a San Sicario, a Sauze, nel vallone di Rio Nero. Non sono stato ai monti della Luna. In conclusione non andate a Sestriere nei giorni festivi.
