New to snow resort holidays and not sure what to expect? We've got you. Here's all you need to know before you go and if you have any questions, feel free to join our Facebook Club Med Snow Squad Group , we'll happily share our advice!
Prioritise waterproof clothes (jacket, trousers) to be both cosy and remain dry until the end of the day.
Wear warm thermal clothes underneath and dress in layers, like an onion so you can adapt your body temperature according to the weather and activity.
Waterproof gloves, a must-have!
Sun cream and lip balm with UV protection will be useful to avoid sunburn and cracking lips.
Take your ski goggles to protect against sun and the bright reflection off the snow.
Finally, your snow equipment! ⛷️ With the Easy Arrival service enjoy a worry-free ski trip. Simply fill in your information 30 days prior to your arrival and our GOs will take care of preparing your equipment and make it ready to collect as soon as you step into the resort. You will also be able to book the Kids Club according to the age of your child. No need to queue, your holiday starts from the second you arrive at Club Med - too easy!
