From the Alps to Japan, wake up to the world's most beautiful mountains

Glacier, immaculate snow, pine forests, lakes, rivers or charming ski stations: the magic of snow-covered landscapes awaits you during your all-inclusive ski holiday. From the greatest alpine domains to the unspoilt ridges of Hokkaido in Japan, via the wooded mountains of China, follow the right trail.

1. Immaculate snow and eternal glaciers

The choice of great skiing

What if you were to take to the heights and put down your suitcases in a cocoon in the high mountains? Your panoramic terrace, perched at over 2000 m, offers breathtaking views. The slopes in front of you are covered in a thick coat of white and are a delight for skiers.

Welcome to Europe's highest resort. The resort of Val Thorens Sensation is a contemporary refuge nestled in a white circus in the heart of the 3 Valleys, the largest ski area on the planet. Climb above a sea of clouds and gaze at Mont Blanc and some of the world's most famous Alpine glaciers. Then, accompanied by an ESF instructor, take a ski lesson (from age 12) along the cime Caron, at 3200 m altitude.

In Tignes, climb to the summit of the Grande Motte glacier, at 3,000m, watch the sun set over the Massif de la Vanoise, then take a break in front of the Aiguille Percée and glide down to the Chardonnet lakes.

2. Skiing among the pine trees at this family resort

Conviviality first and foremost

For an all-inclusive family holiday in the Alps, take a seat in a cocoon set amidst a snow-covered plain dotted with pine trees. Between 1,400 and 2,000 meters above sea level, the green, blue, red and black runs are bordered by forests.

At the gateway of the high mountains, Club Med Les Arcs Panorama resort, all curves and glass, blends into the natural environment. Its many terraces and bay windows offer exceptional views of the Tarentaise valley. Slalom down 425 km of wooded slopes with the whole family and breathe in the pure Beaufortain mountain air.

In an equally warm and authentic setting, head for Club Med Peisey-Vallandry. Settle in this cosy, family-run mountain lodge with a grand, carved wooden staircase. In the vicinity of this large Savoyard chalet, let yourself be tempted by walks along the banks of lakes and streams, or by a snowshoe hike (from 12 years old) at the edge of a larch and spruce forest.
