Faure Sport History

Sauze d’Oulx

Sauze has always been a mountain resort with a great passion for skiing. In 1904 the first Italian ski meeting was held in Sauze d’Oulx. From these first steps to the beginning of the 2nd world war many of the ski stations were modernized and the town turned from agriculture to tourism.


Luigi Faure

It was in 1940 that Signore Luigi Faure recognised this great interest in ski and created a small business in the center of the old town named simply “Faure”. It was here that in addition to offering all the services of a small tourist shop, Luigi Faure also offered ski hire and repair. From that historic day the Faure family has continued with its passion of this winter sport (and you will now find us in the center of town), accumulating over 68 years of experience. The philosophy that still distinguishes our business today is our focus on quality products and service combined with a vast technical experience of all mountain sports, both winter and summer. The business today is still managed by the Faure family
