Club Med

SCWDC has entered into a long-term sponsorship and promotional partnership with Club Med, one of the world's largest resort chains offering All-Inclusive snow, sun, and sports oriented vacations.  What a perfect fit for SCWDC, offering "Great Sports for All Seasons!"

As a result, SCWDC will now be able to offer group trips to Club Med villages around the world at the lowest prices possible, even lower than major travel agencies and tour operators.  Club Med has also offered promotional support to SCWDC by donating several Weekend Getaway packages that SCWDC has used as raffle prizes at our Ski Fest, Warren Miller movie, and Membership events.  

This is a review from US News:

"Established in 1950 with the key objective of providing travelers with a relaxing escape, Club Med infuses breathtaking natural landscapes with high-end, all-inclusive accommodations. The hospitality group now boasts more than 70 outposts across 30 countries worldwide, and its portfolio continues to expand. But what's kept travelers allured for nearly half a century isn't Club Med's gorgeous surroundings: It’s the properties' versatile vacation packages, which appeal to a broad spectrum of traveler types. Each of the varied styles provide travelers with a refreshing and rejuvenating retreat tailored to their personal preferences. And because all meals, activities and family- and couple-oriented services are included, budget-minded guests can unwind knowing that all of their expenses are covered. Many Club Med properties claim a spot on our Best Hotels in the Caribbean and Best Hotels in Mexico rankings lists."

SCWDC's 2016 Western/International ski trip schedule included an All-Inclusive package at the Club Med resort in Chamonix, France led by Ken Eng.  61 participants enjoyed a great week of skiing in the beautiful French Alps.  For 2017, Ken returned as Trip leader for the February trip to Club Med Pragelato, in the fantastic cross-border ski resort of Via Lattea (Milky Way).   For the 2018 ski season, the Club is planning a trip to the Club Med Arcs Extreme ski village at Les Arcs, France.  As always, this will be an All-Inclusive package, including airfare, lodging, lifts, lessons, all meals, and open bar, plus trip insurance.  Another unbeatable vacation value!

For "sun & fun" adventures, SCWDC had a very successful trip to Club Med Punta Cana in April, 2016, led by Gary Rubens.  41 participants enjoyed wonderful weather and fun times.  For 2017, Tammy Vetter led another great February getaway to Club Med Columbus Isle, the premier Caribbean resort in the Bahamas.  Later in 2017, the Club has planned a Halloween Getaway trip to Club Med Turkoise, located on the best beach in the Caribbean, Grace Bay, on the lovelyTurks & Caicos archipelago.

SCWDC is continuously exploring travel to other Club Med locations, such as the Sandpiper Bay village in Florida, featuring the Tennis & Golf Acadamie, or the popular villages at Cancun, Martinique or Ixtapa.  If you would like to receive more information contact Gary Rubens at gkrubens@verizon.net.
