Just had a week in Sauze ,area lift pass despite only way back from sestere to Sauze is via a Black , a blue run back was closed due to an death early Jan, no alternatives set up for intermediates .
Also all week half lifts not working I thought due to lack of snow but hey presto at the weekend all going, do they just open the lifts according to demand .
My gripe is I have paid for area lift pass but cannot use all the facilities during the week.
Is this normal for Italy

Have you tried to claim on the insurance ?

Do they still have the old fashion lifts ?

We have skiied at Sauze also a few years back...on return to base found the greens n blues closed off .. only red n blacks left with just one lift left open n it was nearly time for that to finish ... hubby said he never seen me move so quick when we found out , it was out of sheer terror for me
Luckily the slope gradings are not true reds or blacks or I could still be there lolol

We never returned there again

what and why happened with the death?

(ANSA) - Turin, January 2 2019- A nine-year-old girl died after losing control of her skis and hitting a windbreak at Sauze d'Oulx north of Turin on Wednesday.
The girl was rushed to hospital in critical condition and died there.
The accident took place in the northern Val di Susa area.
The girl and her family were from Rome.
She was skiing with her father when the accident took place.
The girl was wearing a helmet.
I have made several local enquiries and it seems accident investigation and the ski Authorities have not been able to decide on how to make it safer, i am informed that a decision could take upto four years.

Five weekend trips of learning and development
That bit coming back over to Sauze is tricky for everyone. The little steep black is narrow enough for most of us. The blue goes round the mountain side but is fairly daunting for the nervous. The slope is ok but the drop off to your right is scary for beginners. However it’s a great resort with lots of beginners and mid level stuff without going to sestriere side.
