It’s more affordable than you think
You might assume that because it involves crossing an ocean, the price tag on an Alps trip must be outrageous. Think again. Some of Club Med's all-inclusive ski vacations break down to less than $200 per day… basically what you’d drop on a nice dinner. That includes lift tickets, ski lessons (yes, in English and yes, for all skier levels… even bump lovers and cliff jumpers), lodging in modern and spacious rooms, gourmet meals and -- you’re not going to believe this -- open bars. Normally, coordinating and planning each of these elements can be daunting even before the calculator’s involved. Knowing the price tag up front for a high-end trip to France, Switzerland, or Italy makes it pretty easy. To really take planning and budgeting out of the equation, ClubMed is offering a sweeps: 7-nights for 2 adults to a Club Med Alpine ski resort (pick which one you want, subject to availability). If a free, weeklong trip to skiing paradise sounds like a good deal to you, check out the details here.
