TRIP LEADER: KenNeth Eng
Our most popular ski trip last year, with 61 participants, was at the All Inclusive Club Med resort in Chamonix, France. This year Ken Eng returns as Trip Leader, and our destination we will be at Club Med Pragelato, a modern, newly built ski resort located in the famous "Milky Way" (Via Lattea) ski circuit, in the Piedmont region, region of Italy, near the French border.
Via Lattea features an incredible 1,200 meters (3,937 feet) of vertical descent, with 7 different pistes. Pragelato is best suited for intermediate skiers and snowboarders but there is a lot of terrain for beginners and experts too, along with many miles of cross country trails. A tramway ride away is Sestirieve, an area best suited for advance intermediate and above skiers and snowboarders.
During the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics, Pragelato was the site of Nordic skiing events: the ski jump, cross-country skiing, and the Nordic combined. Situated in Italy's northwestern Piedmont region, it is Europe's second largest ski domain. A quick cable-car/tramway ride away (included) brings you to the Sestirieve, the site of the 2006 Torino Winter Olympic Alpine skiing events and regular FIS Alpine Ski World Cup events.
As always, Club Med's All Inclusive package (all meals, drinks, lifts, lessons, entertainment & trip insurance) provides an incredible value compared to other ski trips.
