The Club is full of families and children as well as non skiing grandparents providing help with childcare. It is also ideal for older singleton skiers and couples as the Club Med package includes group lessons. Lessons is perhaps the wrong word as people will opt for a ski level they think appropriate then be sorted (triaged) into groups of similar ability and/or language. There may be youngsters who will improve rapidly over a week and oldies who are as good as they’ll get (or are deteriorating!). A couple can ski at different levels if they want to or opt to be together but the stronger skier has to go down to the weaker one’s group. It means one never has to ski alone but you are at liberty to do so if you wish and there is no group skiing on Saturday or Sunday unless you engage an instructor privately. Transfer day is usually Sunday. There are usually plenty of English speaking classes as Brazilian, Turkish, Dutch and Israelis will opt for English speaking groups. Club Med was originally a French company (now Chinese I think) so the first language is theoretically French but in many Clubs, especially Valmorel, the French are often the minority. The nationality mix depends on when you go. We travel in January and meet lots of Brazilians. I would thoroughly recommend this club. The skiing area is ideal for those over the hill.
