ICBA to dig out my piste map, but I'm sure I've skied at least halfway
down from Sauze to Sestriere, and all the way down from Sansicario to
Sestriere. The only slightly tricky link, with no lift option, is
Sansicario to Sauze.

We like to stay in Sauze, and with the right travel agent you get a
day coach to Montgenevre for notta lotta euros.

I really liked skiing in Sauze because some of those runs through the
woods are really scenic, but the skiing is definitely better in
Montgenevre, so I reckon you've got the equation right.

This was the last season we've had to travel at half-term (both kids
will be at uni next season), so I reckon next year the first week in
February will be perfect.

Nothing damages a machine more than an ignoramus with a manual, a
can-do attitude and a set of cheap tools

We were really impressed with Montgenèvre last season. The weather always
seemed better than just across the border, and the village so much improved
since they buried the through-road. Lunch in Italy is a real bonus (cheaper,
too) we made the most of. Have to admit, though, that one particularly
glacial morning we did drive down to Clavière for a head start. But the link
over, although slow, gets my vote as one of the most amazing I've skied,

Oh, and if you want to know about the TV documentary (which might still be
viewable online) the team at the Office de Tourisme in MG will know where it
was aired, as they'd have hosted the film crew visit.
