Family holiday inspiration: Dreaming of a winter wonderland for December

Dreaming of a winter wonderland away from the regular sun and sand holiday? Then pack your onesie, beanies, and gloves for an action-packed and fun vacation in a snowy paradise.

In the French, Italian, and Swiss Alps await resorts for you to enjoy and experience your festive end-of-year vacation with your family.

The snow-covered mountains of the Alps are home to a number of our Club Med villages (or resorts) which deliver all the fun, exercise, relaxation, and postcard views you need.

December holidays are typically associated with filling your belly and kicking back and being lazy. But not when you go skiing or snowboarding! Not only are the sports of skiing and snowboarding highly addictive, they force you to exercise in a fun and enjoyable way. You can burn calories, experience the wonder of snow and the scenery at the same time, and create memories and laughs with the whole family – especially if you haven’t been skiing or snowboarding before. At Club Med, your ski lessons and passes are all included in your all-inclusive holiday package. The different slopes offer amazing experiences for all ski and snowboarding levels so you can find a slope that works for you and start having some fun.

An experience that is a fitting reward after a year of hard work

Our all-inclusive snow resorts bring a welcome change if you are a frequent beach holiday traveller. The benefit of an all-inclusive holiday is that you can really relax knowing your expenses were covered in the all-inclusive package price. When we say all-inclusive it means you and your family get to enjoy full-board gourmet cuisine, bar and snacking, day and night entertainment, and ski passes and lessons all included in your package price.
