Après ski: where to find fun after a day on the slopes

Let’s be honest, mountain holiday isn’t really all about skiing, but it is surely all about the après-ski. From sipping a hot chocolate right off the slopes, to soaking in the heated pool or pampering yourself with a massage, here’s why everyone loves Club Med snow resorts so much.

More than just ski

The day doesn’t end when the skiing

There’s no doubt that the main part of a skiing holiday is the actual skiing itself. There really are few things in life more liberating than strapping on a pair of skis or a snowboard and swishing down a snowy mountain. But if skiing is the only focus of your holiday, then you’re missing out. As a day on the slopes comes to an end, there’s a world of après ski to explore afterwards and it promises a whole other kind of fun.

Club Med Mountain Resorts are designed to help you make the most of your vacation and have fun on and off the slopes. Dine and savor the local and international gastronomy, pamper yourself at the Club Med Spa, and enjoy the unique nightlife of the ski resorts: there's so much to do and discover.

Gourmet cuisine

Skiing is hungry work. It’s important to keep your energy levels up, but there’s no point filling yourself with just any old sustenance, not when there are unforgettable meals to be eaten. And you can always burn off anything overly indulgent on the slopes the next day.
