Stayed at Pragelato and skied Sestriere February 2013. We had wonderful snow conditions on piste with some off-piste following a little snow later in the week. This made it possible to do some forest skiing which was great when visibility dropped and winds got up.
The resort has excellent beginner to intermediate progression, though none of the pistes was challenging for a good skier. The weekend was noticeably busier, especially for raw beginners on the (excellent) snow carpet. As always, as you move up and round the mountain, queues were much less and never a problem, though beware leaving too little time for the return chair from the Pragelato side to Sestriere at peak times. There's a second chair which I never saw running.
Base restaurant facilities were used with an excellent snack bar/ drinks area at very reasonable prices (large Latte 1E).
Ski hire and storage was both helpful and excellently placed and Sestriere and Pragelato ski schools spoke good English and delivered excellent service (I was ski Ambassador for a school party).
If you go over to Saux d'oux don't bother to ski back beyond the gondola middle station after which it degenerates into a track which leaves you having to hike back across the town! Take the gondola!
The long blue down to the big lift at Pragelato is strongly recommended for cruisers. It ends up at Club Med and is an easy but pleasant run.
I'd return with pleasure and would like to explore more of the circuit.
