Unforgettable freeride skiing day in Sestriere with our mountain guide Nicola

“It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”

Yakki is the place for you if you choose to discover the world and enjoy it every day! Sometimes, however, we really need a push to go on an adventure and get out of our comfort zone... that's why we have decided to inspire you with some of the most beautiful experiences offered and booked on Yakki! 

We really hope the stories will push you to cross your limits and become, you too, part of Yakki!

Nicola Marchisio, a mountain guide from Piedmont, tells the story of... 

We meet each other at 8:30 a.m. at the start of the lifts, and here it is, the hotel shuttle arrives on time.
Two boys with a bright smile on their faces get off the shuttle and greet me "Hi Nicola, how are you?" Then we go to the entrance, buy the tickets and we can start our day, direction "Pali della luce "...

As soon as we get to the top, their faces are a little dubious, because the slopes have been chopped by skiers during the latest days, so no powder for us. Or, at least, it seems so…

I turn to the boys and, smiling, I tell them not to worry, we will surely find a beautiful hidden spot to have fun. 
Just the time to warm up with a couple of laps and here we are! 
I take out of my pocket a piece of paper with some "secret spots" in the Rognosa zone, and the faces of the boys turn in a moment into enthusiasts!
After numerous descents on a awesome snow we stop for lunch. 
Joakim and Andre are really nice and pleasant and our lunch is a continuous exchange of jokes, what a joy!

We continue our day with five laps in the forests of Pragelato skiing on fantastic snow on untouched slopes.
At 3:45 p.m. after 7000 metres of altitude drop we are full of happiness, emotions and also lactic acid so we decide to go back to civilzation.

What can I say... it has been a perfect day! Clear sky, no wind, not too cold temperature and unforgettable snow. We should definitely repeat it!
