Club Med, a pioneer of the all-inclusive ski holiday concept, has confirmed that it’s new ski resort in Québec, Canada, will open this winter, marking a return to North American ski holiday provision for the company.

Club Med Québec, the brand’s first resort in Canada and newest four-season all-inclusive ski resort, will open on December 3rd, 2021.

Located 90 minutes away from Québec City in the Le Massif de Charlevoix region, the four-season all-inclusive mountain resort is spread across 300+ acres among a preserved natural landscape and features sweeping views of the mighty St. Lawrence River.

The resort will feature 302 rooms and a private Exclusive Collection (5-Star) luxury space featuring 25 suites.

“Select rooms channel the colours of Québec with winter white, twilight blue, and yellow sun decor, and other rooms feature elements like blond wooden floors and lofty ceilings akin to the warmth of the region’s ancestral homes. Nestled at the top of the resort, the Exclusive Collection space offers incredible views, exclusive amenities, and all-inclusive premium services, such as concierge service, breakfast room service, a dedicated bar with daily evening champagne service, and an exclusive lounge,” a company media statement explains.

The resort also offers a wide choice of dining, an “all-new spa concept” and the option to try “ emblematic Québec activities” like ice-skating, dog sledding, and sugar shack visits.

Club Med was founded in 1950 in France by Gérard Blitz and formerly operated resorts at several US ski areas in the 20th Century, including at Copper Mountain in Colorado, where a young Jim Carrey and famous French skier Jean-Claude Killy made a little-known movie together in 1984. These centres closed several decades ago now.

Today Club Med currently runs 70 premium resorts including 20 ski resorts in Canada, the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps as well as in China and Japan, each spread across at least 50+ acres.

The company offers all-inclusive ski packages including accommodation, lift tickets, group ski and snowboard lessons, childrens’ clubs for ages 4-17, après-ski activities and all-day dining.
