Though Club Med’s warm weather and beach destinations may be more familiar to travelers, the brand has recently announced new information and offerings for the upcoming ski season at its 20-plus all-inclusive alpine resorts. Most notable of this information is the December 2017 opening of the Club Med Samoëns Morillon resort.
In a written release announcing a new campaign for the brand, Club Med said that the company intends for their ski season packages to be more manageable and more affordable than a D.I.Y ski vacation in the Rocky Mountains, though all of Club Med’s alpine resorts are outside of the United States.
Ski packages include:
- Ski passes and lift tickets from the base of the mountain to the top, where skiers can access all varieties of terrain from beginner greens to expert double black diamonds.
- Ski instructions in a group setting from the national ski schools of France, Italy and Switzerland with professional instructors for all levels.
- Apres ski activities like heated pools, saunas, Turkish baths, parties, live entertainment and climbing walls as well as fitness classes in resort gyms.
- Gourmet dining with regional mountain specialties at on-site restaurants, from savory fondue to choice French wines.
- Childcare for children ages four and up.
These new package offerings coincide with the winter 2017 opening of Club Med’s newest alpine resort: Club Med Samoëns Morillon. A family friendly resort with panoramic mountain views located in a preserved natural site at the heart of the Grand Massif ski domain, the Club Med Samoëns Morillon is about an hour outside of Geneva, and provides modern amenities and design, including the Club Med Spa by Carita. The travel package for two to the resort plans to include roundtrip airfare, roundtrip transfer to the resort, seven-night accommodation, lunch and dinner, beverages, a six day lift ticket pass, ski or snowboard lessons from a guide for five days and 15 percent tipping at $6,319 per couple.
Other popular ski destinations from Club Med include:
- Club Med Arcs Extreme: An adults-exclusive property in the French Alps recently redesigned for the 2017 ski season with new Club Room accommodations, Club Med Spa by DECLEOR and the Aiguille Rouge specialty restaurant.
- Club Med Val Thorens Sensations: The highest ski resort in Europe and Club Med’s most popular alpine destination, Val Thorens has ski-in-ski-out services alongside a number of outdoor activities such as speed-riding, climbing, sledding, boardercross as well as a spa by Carita.
- Club Med Chamonix Mont-Blanc: The resort is inspired by the charm of an ancient Belle Epoque palace, and services 113 miles of ski slopes for skiers of all expertise. The resort is low altitude and provides Baby Club Med services making it a destination for family vacations with young children.
