When the heat becomes unbearable, many people opt for cooler regions like Asia and Europe where they can go on family ski trips to the snow. With the snow season lasting until March, there’s still plenty of time to book a holiday and hit the slopes, so here are some of Club Med’s best snow destinations in 2020.
1# Sahoro Hokkaido Resort, Japan
Known to be one of the more popular destinations in Asia for a snowy holiday, the Sahoro Hokkaido resort is a fun-filled, relaxing holiday for the whole family. With perfect, powdery snow the skiing experience is bound to be spectacular. But it’s not just skiing that this resort is known for; you can also take in the scenery on horseback or via the nature getaways.
2# Tomamu Hokkaido
Also in Japan, Tomamu Hokkaido is another beautiful destination to consider for your 2020 snow adventures. Whether you’re skiing down the slopes, trekking through nature, riding Japan’s largest indoor wave pool at nearby Hoshino Resort or enjoying the fresh seafood, wagyu beef and locally-brewed spirits, you’ll find everything you need at Club Med’s all-inclusive resort.
Shifting a bit further inland, we find the Yabuli Ski Resort in China. Yabuli is China’s first snow domain in the heart of the mountains where you can enjoy 50.8km of ski runs across a wide range of skill levels. After a long day of skiing these beautiful slopes, you can wind down and relax at the Club Med Spa by L’Occitane.
4# Alpe d’Huez La Sarenne
The next location is in western Europe in France at the Alpe d’Huez resort where you can ski and enjoy the stunning views of the French Alps. If you want to switch it up a little bit, you can hit the ice rink or try out skijoring, pulled by a horse. By night indulge yourselves in the local charcuterie and white wine of the region.
5# Les Arcs Panorama
For this one, we stay in France at the Arcs Panorama resort found 1800 metres above sea level surrounded by the enchanting pine trees. The structure itself is beautifully made of glass, wood and raw stone with rooms that give you stunning views of the sun sinking into the horizon.
6# Pragelato Vialattea
This cosy village-like resort resides in the heart of a peaceful valley in the mountains of Italy. Not only can you slalom down the slopes all day, but also trek under the surrounding pine trees and by the day’s end get a taste of Italy’s lifestyle and food.
