6 Reasons to Book an All-Inclusive Ski Vacation

The top 6 reasons to book an all-inclusive ski vacation with Club Med.

Ski-in to Club Med in the Alps and ski-out with memories that last long beyond you return home. You will discover new passions, explore new places, carve new tracks and more!

RELAX AND DISCONNECT FROM THE WORLD

A Club Med all-inclusive vacation frees you from the work of actually organizing the trip. Plus, the money matters! So keep in mind that once you arrive, you don’t have to pay anything extra.

The all-inclusive concept is popularly associated with resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean, but it’s become a worldwide phenomenon! Brands now offer all-inclusive getaways to long-haul destinations—including ski vacations. And there’s no need to pre-book lift passes or lessons—Club Med resorts includes both in their all-inclusive packages.

EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS IN EUROPE…

Skiers looking for adventures beyond the Rockies and other Canadian slopes will find that Club Med’s all-inclusive concept makes European skiing more affordable, offering an incredible value for the money proposition.

Skiing the Alps is also a bucket list item, with people looking to ski the Swiss, French or Italian Alps at least once in their lifetime.

EXPERIENCE NEVER- ENDING THRILLS ON THE SLOPES…

The ski domains in the Alps have what every serious skier wants: THRILLS.

When compared to other mountain ranges like the Rockies, the Alps provide a larger vertical drop. Advanced skiers seeking new challenges and more expert trails will find plenty to choose from in the Alps. Professional instructors from the French Ski School can also help guests safely ski on off-piste runs and trails. The higher altitude of the Alps also provides higher quality snow that is preserved for longer periods of time. There’s a reason nearly one-third of the Winter Olympics have been held in the French, Italian or Swiss Alps!

…AND OFF THE SLOPES

You don’t even have to be a skier to enjoy a vacation at an Alpine resort. Take a gondola ride into a charming village, a nature hike, a vigorous Nordic walk or a leisurely snowshoe stroll, after which the spa awaits with heated indoor and outdoor pools, whirlpool and Turkish baths, and fitness and cardio facilities.

Soak up the après-ski atmosphere by cozying up to a fireplace with a festive surrounding, fondue included, among family and friends—new and old. A lively all-inclusive resort bar might just become your favorite memory of the entire vacation.

If you decide you do indeed want to try skiing (or snowboarding, perhaps), expert coaching is available for beginners, as well as for veterans of the sport who want to improve their skills.

BRING FAMILIES CLOSER TOGETHER

Taking a family ski trip to the Alps can prove to be a worthwhile experience to bring the family closer—and doing it the all-inclusive way is the most family-friendly option. Mastering the snowy mountain slopes together will create a strong bonding experience without all the digital distractions of today. Families will find themselves leaving their phones in the room to go hit the slopes. For those who aren’t quite ready to master the slopes, other activities await, including snowmobiles, ice skating, snowshoeing, sleigh rides and various charming Alpine towns to explore. Booking a Club Med family-friendly resort that offers activities for children and teens of all ages will play a big role in ensuring everyone in the family has a vacation worth remembering.

DINE ON AUTHENTIC LOCAL FOODS

From fondue and raclette to mulled wine and Génépi—you can let your taste buds explore the world.

After spending a day shredding the slopes, there’s no better way to refuel than with a selection of freshly prepared local delicacies. In Club Med Alpine resorts, you will enjoy full-service restaurants and specialty restaurants with authentic local cuisine that was inspired by the surrounding regions, paired with international specialties, guaranteed to please every palate.

In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner, guests can also enjoy grab-and-go snacks and cold/hot beverages for a quick pick-me-up. With Club Med all-inclusive concept in the Alps, you can choose what you want, when you want it and without the added stress of planning every meal.
