Ski into an Adventure

20 December 2017

There is so much more to a Ski Holiday than just skiing. Here are the top adventurous things to try out when you book your 2018 Club Med Ski Holiday.

Alpine Skiing

Explore the exceptional Meije glacier at Les Deux Alpes at an altitude of 1,750 metres; discover the Portes du Soleil ski domain at Avoriaz, which stretches right into Switzerland and sits at an altitude of 1,800 metres; or dive straight into the extreme at Arcs Extrême in the French Alps, which offers 200 kilometres of white paradise at the tip of your skis. Whether you’re an aficionado or a rookie, there are slopes for you to uncover. Most of the Club Med packages include a five day Ski School and six day Ski Pass, along with ski and boot hire, which means you’re guaranteed to master the powdery white slopes in the time that you explore these phenomenal domains.

Snowboarding

If skiing isn’t for you, or you’re looking for something a little more challenging, there’s the option of snowboarding at any of the three star Club Med resorts. It has been said that “Skiing is easier to learn but harder to master, whereas snowboarding is harder to learn but easier to master.” This is because in snowboarding once you’ve mastered the technique of “getting on your edges”, which is what takes longer to learn, you can reach an impressive level fairly quickly. When it comes to skiing, however, it’s fairly easy hopping onto your skis and getting the gist of it, but becoming a pro is a little more technical than snowboarding. Whether you’re after snowboarding or skiing, both are on offer at all of the three star Club Med resorts.

Sun, Snow and Fresh Air

The resorts also generally offer fun activities such as horse-drawn sleigh rides, ice skating, snowmobiles, snowshoeing, paragliding, dog sledding, snowball fights and more. While there are ski classes for munchkins aged four years and up, sledding is a great option as a fun, family-friendly activity to try out. With so much to choose from at each of the resorts, it is impossible to miss out on an exciting adventure.

Choose Club Med for the ultimate skiing adventure and dream holiday all-in-one. Enjoy the benefits of an all-inclusive trip which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and even wine, beer & soft drinks.
