MIAMI, Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — As splashed on the headlines this week, snow is refusing to fall on slopes across the U.S. from Aspen to Park City. Club Med, the original all-inclusive resort company with over 80 resorts worldwide, comes to the rescue of ski enthusiasts looking for the freshest powder with plenty of natural snow and great rates at its European ski resorts, starting at $1,064* per person for a seven-night stay at select resorts. Club Med’s charming ski resorts in the French Alps include Peisey-Vallandry, Chamonix Mont-Blanc, La Plagne 2100, Valmorel and Tignes Val Claret, which have received a combined 20 ft. of natural snow this season and weather forecasts show much more to come. While hitting the slopes at Club Med, guests can enjoy the value of an all-inclusive escape where everything is included in one convenient price, even lessons and ski lift tickets. With 50 years of ski resort experience, Club Med currently operates 20 ski resorts worldwide including the recently opened Club Med Valmorel, which underwent a $130 million investment to create a new resort offering multiple bedroom Chalet-Apartments, complete with private butler and personal chef.

At Club Med resorts, all levels of winter sports lovers can take downhill skiing and snowboarding lessons free of charge. Skiing at Club Med’s resorts in the French Alps accommodates every type of skier with 865 miles of ski slopes including 109 black slopes. For non-skiers, Club Med ski villages offer alternative activities from hiking and snowshoe rambles to Nordic walking. For more leisurely views of the snowy Alps, guests curl up under blankets for a horse-drawn sleigh ride.

Club Med resorts provide the ideal family getaway offering supervision and exciting activities for children from four months to 17 years old, with Baby Club Med, Petit Club Med, Mini Club Med and Club Med Passworld (an exclusive place for teens to hang out.) As part of Petit Club Med, French Ski Schools teach skiing and “fun in the snow” courses for children from age three.

After a long day hitting the slopes, guests can relax at a Club Med Spa and warm up in the Turkish Baths or enjoy a massage.
