We can arrange airport transfers for you which is the easiest and sometimes the most cost effective way of getting to the resort. These can be from any of the major airports in the region.
You can get to Sestriere via public transport which is relatively straight forward although with luggage it can be tiresome. There is a regular bus that links Turin airport with the main train station, Porta Nuova. From there you’ll need to catch a train to Oulx. The train journey takes about 1hr 15 minutes. The following link takes you to the airport bus time table.
From Oulx a regular bus service takes you right into the heart of Sestriere. One word of warning – If your flight lands late afternoon/early evening then the connecting bus could well have stopped by the time you get to Oulx. I’d suggest you only attempt this if your plane lands in the morning. Bus time table from Oulx

To get to Sestriere by car is relatively painless as its motorway pretty much all the way. From Calais it should take around 10 hours. The journey takes you down through Reims and Dijon then onto Chambery before going through the frejus tunnel. Once through the tunnel you come off the motorway at Oulx and follow the signs for Sestriere.
The map below is interactive so you can zoom in and move it around. I have used Calais as the starting point however if you click on the link just below the map you can alter this. Also by clicking on the link you’ll be able to print off the route.
