The common answer is that ski season is from the end of November to the end of April.
The busiest time of year is Christmas, New Year, and Chinese New Year. Christmas and Chinese New Year at Club Med are magic! With a visit from Santa, Christmas tree decorating activities, decadent feast and firework, we’ve got it all wrapped up with a bow on…
If you’ve never been skiing or snowboarding before, or want to take the family (and your kids) on their first snow holiday, you might want to consider booking for “late” in the ski season, which is March/April.
Remember to book early. By booking early, you will enjoy the best rooms and dates availability and great negotiated air fares.
