Looking for a ski resort to go skiing in, have two young kids.
A friend told me about the Club Med Ski Resort formula, where the ski lessons are included + some have day care/special activities for kids... She's never been, has anyone here? If you could let me know how it is, it'd be great!

Hi Ruth,

I don't know if you've seen, but we wrote articles on some of the Club Meds (specifically the Club Med Arcs and the Club Med Chamonix).

Perhaps they'll give you a clearer idea of what to expect?

Definitely a good solution if you want to spent time alone with the hubby and make sure your kids are having fun meanwhile.

Actually, they usually take so good care of your kids and keep them busy all day that you hardly see them... which isn't great either (at least IMHO).

So you have to find the right balance and definitely make sure you'll leave a couple days "kids-club" free so you can spend time with them!

One way of doing it is putting them in the kids club the first few days, especially if they've never skied before, so they can learn the basics and how to handle skiing and then take them out skiing the rest of the trip.
That way they'll know (hopefully) how to stay on their feet and they'll be real proud to show you what they've learned so far.

But then again, it's up to you to figure out what you want and how much time you want to spend with them!
