Why is Club Med so good for a family ski holiday?
In our opinion Club Med is the most relaxing way to do a family ski holiday. Everything you need is on site, you don’t need to trek the kids to a ski hire shop across town or deal with the hassle of getting the kids and their skis to the ski school meeting point in the morning. Simply drop them at the Kids Club after breakfast and the staff take care of the rest, from getting them into their ski gear to sorting out their skis and meeting their ski instructors.
The kids club staff, known as G.O.s, have astounding amounts of energy and make it really fun for kids. There is a early evening entertainment programme for the kids, children’s parties and the afternoon family “Big Snack”. To top it off there is an end of week show that all the children can take part in.
Older kids get their own space to chill out with Club Med Passworld, a dedicated space for teenagers to get away from the adults and little ones. Activites they can choose if they want to include DJing, video games, film design and dance.
Food is also a big feature of a Club Med hotel. The breakfasts are amazing. Lunch and dinner in the buffet restaurant offers so many choices, no matter how picky the kids are there’ll be something for them to eat. Although if they’re like ours that might be pizza every day for a week..
“What a refreshing experience I had with Matt at Alpenglow. First hand advice, Matt hit the nail on the head with all his suggestions from our brief. Matt offered advice based on his own experience of resorts and of taking his own family on snow holidays. Can’t recommend highly enough. Thank you, Matt.”
Alpe d'Huez - Our favourite Club Med for Families
Club Med Alpe d’Huez
Alpe d’Huez, France, sleeps 120
Club Med Alpe d’Huez is our top recommendation for families. The ski area is fantastic for green and blue run skiers and there’s a nursery slope right outside the door. Kids love the pool and there’s a wide range activities in the resort for the whole family. High altitude skiing and a short transfer from Grenoble make this hotel a great choice when travelling with children.
