It’s a marmite holiday – you’ll either love it or hate it. Most love it. One UK agent reports 98% of clients re-book.
Club Med pioneered the ‘all inclusive’ mass package holiday, and its prices include pretty much everything you will need on a skiing holiday.
Club Med offers all inclusive ski holidays that include flights, transfers, lift passes, ski lessons, all meals (including lunch), all drinks from the bar including cocktails and much more.
But not ski hire.
And WiFi is usually extra too.
It offers 22 resorts in France, Italy and Switzerland and we list the main ones at the end of this article.
Check out these videos and see if it may tickle your interest.
Val Thorens in Les3Vallees in France + Cervinia in the Aosta Valley in Italy:
The UK agent, Ski Line started offering Club Med holidays over a decade ago and is now one of the biggest agents.
“In 2011 we became Club Med Infinite agent giving access to special rates not available to many other agents, meaning our clients can buy from us knowing they have paid the best price available,” said the MD of Ski Line, Angus Kinloch.

Here at PlanetSKI our senior news reporter, Katie Bamber, visited Club Med in Valmorel, France, a couple of years ago.
Check out Katie’s take on the Club Med experience:
And our editor, James Cove, was there in 2015.
“The Club Med experience may not be to everyone’s taste with its organised fun and regimented style, but for those that do like the experience it is hard to beat it,” said the PlanetSKI editor, James Cove, at the time.
He’ll be back at a Club Med this winter reporting on the secret of its success.
Club Med holidays are sold around the world so you’ll be meeting Australians, Russians, Brazilians, South Africans, Japanese other Brits and of course the French.
Look out for our reports later this winter.
