I always thought the Milky Way was a candy bar.

Turin is a great place for a Ski holiday. There are a lot of Ski resorts near Turin along with some of the best slopes to ski on. You can get to famous ski resorts within an hour of landing at the airport and there are more resorts as you move further away from the airport.

There is the Valle di Susa which is just forty five minutes from the airport. You can ski to your heart's content at this place and also do some sight seeing on the side. There's plenty to see along the slopes and there's also a guided tour if you are interested. The nightlife around here is excellent.

Located about an hour's journey from the airport is the Ski Sauze d'Ouix region. You will be skiing in the famous Vialattea region of Italy. It usually has great snow and is also part of the Milky Way stretch of the Vialattea. There's over four hundred kilometers of slopes to ski on meaning you will never run out of space. Sauze d'Ouix is a quaint and traditional village that makes for the perfect place to get you started on your ski trip.

There is also San Sicario, which gives you a full reign over the Milky Way stretch. The Milky Way covers one hundred and forty five runs which ensures that you have great variety to choose from. The resort offers great deals to snowboarders and skiers. Many people who travel to Turin on a ski holiday take up the option of a car hire Turin service at the airport. Make sure to choose the right hire car particularly if you are bringing a lot of ski gear with you. Comfort is an issue often overlooked in favor of price. Consider the options available taking into account the number of passengers and their individual needs.

Ski Sestrière is another place where you can get in some great skiing action. It sits in between a high up purpose-built Alpine village. This has over four hundred kilometers of pistes for snowboarding and skiing and is a great place for intermediate skiers and snowboarders. There are also areas where advanced skiers can go to for more challenging slopes. This resort is situated about one hundred kilometers from Turin International airport. It was the place where the 2006 winter Olympics were held.

Another great resort is the Ski Clavière, which has over three hundred and seventy pistes. It is located near the French border and has a peaceful traditional Alpine village setting. It is connected to the neighboring Montgenèvre in France and has beautiful slopes to ski on. It offers easy access to both Turin International Airport and the Geneva Airport. It is chosen by most for its easy to reach location and the fantastic skiing experience it provides.
