Much might be said in praise of Club Med but first and foremost the skiing arrangements are excellent (based on 10 holidays in various resorts). Skiers are graded from levels 1-6, and divided up further among gradations of ability within that, also often by language. The instructors are the local ski school, but don't be put off. This is not group lessons - more ski leading with occasional tips. It lasts all day, often with a good lunch at one of their two mountain restaurants. I am a very experienced skier and group 6 is off-piste whenever suitable - sometimes doing all day excursions to quite remote areas. Great for groups of different abilities.
My wife is no longer able to ski - but at some resorts Club Med provide a 5-day snow shoe/walking group, with lift pass, leader and even whole days out. Some French and German is probably helpful to get the social benefits.
Many, many other benefits of winter sports Club Med holidays and the Roi Soleil in St Moritz in particular - swimming pool, sauna, steam, stretching classes, all drinks free except champagne and some whiskies. Everyone we spoke to is a great fan and most were repeat visitors. Speaks for itself? Unfortunately the web site and brochures do not do it justice.More
