Via Lattea saves the world cup!

Here in the Via Lattea we still have snow! It is just about surviving the record temperatures witnessed recently. Where most of the alps seems bereft of snow the Italian Alps just west of Turin has managed to keep the little that arrived over Christmas. Due to this and the great work by the staff of the Via Lattea we are able to hold some of the world cup skiing events that have been cancelled elsewhere due to the poor snow conditions. Next weekend sees the FIS womens downhill and Super G events and Friday sees the Mens Super G that was cancelled last weekend in Austria.
Also over the next two weeks we are hosting the Student winter games with cross country racing at Pragelato where last year they held the Winter Olympics.
For us mere mortals there is over 400km of skiable pistes of all levels and private lessons start at just €35 per hour!

The local weather forcast is predicting a good snowfall over Monday to Wednesday so this is really the place to come! If you want to be sure of getting your annual dose of snow we would suggest that now is the time to get it!
