Sauze d’Oulx: The place to go for high-quality, budget skiing. Want to go skiing on a budget, without compromising on quality? Check out Sauze d’OuIx! 

If you are looking to go skiing on a budget, without compromising on quality, look no further than Sauze d’OuIx!

Sauze d’OuIx is a town in Italy, that is popular amongst keen British skiers and Italians taking a weekend ski break! Located in the province of Turin, the most remarkable thing about Sauze d’OuIx is the fact it is at the foot of Monte Genevris, and was used as the site of the freestyle skiing events during the 2006 Olympic Winter Games.

In the past, although, Sauze d’OuIx has such a large ski area, it has been known on a ski vacationers level as having a better reputation for a buzzing apres-ski scene, rather than purely being loved for the skiing itself. However, the resort shouldn’t be shunned as a top place to go this ski season.

We like to call it a little rough around the edges but, essentially, a fantastic place to ski and perfect for those who want great skiing on a budget.

If you don’t mind some hilly walks around the town after ski hours and you’re happy with an old-fashioned, needs-improvement-but-works lift system, then you’ll benefit from excellent skiing, at low prices, in Sauze d’OuIx.
