Choosing the ideal period for your ski vacation

Want to have a great vacation in the mountains? The right way to prepare for your ski vacation is to start by deciding which time of the year you want to go. Some ski resorts in Europe and Asia welcome their first powder fans as early as November. By mid-December, they're rolling out thick white blankets of snow to cater to nature lovers and winter sports fans alike. Enjoy the magical atmosphere of Christmas during a family ski trip in December. Travel in January for the best powder, and start the new year by treating yourself to the height of fun. Take advantage of exceptional snow cover in February to recharge your batteries and get your fill of thrills on the slopes. Longer days, milder temperatures, fewer people - ski vacations in March are perfect for fun and sun on the slopes. Enjoy the last of the snow in April.  

Choose the ski resort that best suits your needs

Once you've decided when you want to go, choose a destination for your ski vacation. Family-friendly, sporty, intimate, or festive: choose the ski resort that best meets your needs. Accommodation, restaurants, childcare, activities, ski passes, and lessons with instructors from a national ski school (including the ESF in France) - make the most of the all-inclusive offer by Club Med. You and your family will wake up in an untouched natural setting at the Club Med Resort of Valmorel. Get a taste of Italy while skiing at the Club Med Resort of Pragelato Vialattea.
