First of all there’s ease of travel. Rather than spending half your time flying, riding a train and waiting for connections, you want somewhere that’s simple to access. Europe is pretty much a given as any further means too much time sitting in an airplane seat.
Likewise, it’s good to go somewhere where everything you need is ready and waiting for you. That means equipment for hire, lessons arranged, passes sorted out and apres ski experience booked. And ski-in, ski-out is also important. That means the moment you leave you chalet you’ll be enjoying the powder.
The good news is that these criteria are fulfilled by every Club Med resort in Europe. Here’s four that won’t let you down when you only have a few days to ski.
