A new Club Med at this Quebec ski resort just opened its doors after years of waiting
Canada’s first Club Med has finally opened its doors in Canada and is perfectly situated on the slopes of Le Massif, Quebec — one of the best ski areas in Eastern North America.
Club Med Québec Charlevoix is open as of Dec. 2 for guests who can stay in one of the 302 rooms including 25 five-star suites. The resort boasts a stunning waterfront panorama and sweeping views of the scenic St. Lawrence River.
Le Massif de Charlevoix is the highest vertical drop east of the Canadian Rockies and has a particularly incredible micro-climate thanks to its position near the St. Lawrence River. It is also one of the few ski areas in the east that offers backcountry and off-piste skiing.
Located only 90 minutes from Québec City in Le Massif de Charlevoix region, one of four Québec reserves in the UNESCO Canadian network, this destination has rich and complex ecosystem and is part of the Charlevoix Biosphere Reserve.
“We are thrilled to finally open our doors to Club Med Québec Charlevoix and to Canada,” says Henri Giscard D'Estaing, president, Club Med. “As we ease back into travel, we know this picturesque property hidden in the mountains of Charlevoix will be a front-runner for domestic and international vacationers. Club Med has operated for over 50 years in this country, and we are honoured to continue our investment with the first Canadian property and first four-season mountain resort in North America.”
The new Club Med is an all-inclusive destination spread across 300+ acres of land. The new facility is home to three restaurants and two bars, as well as, childcare facilities for kids four months to 17 years old, an indoor pool, and a spa.
During the winter season, the resort offers ski-in/ski-out slope access. Included ski and snowboard passes and classes encourage every guest to hit the slopes, no matter their skill level.
There are also a variety of programs geared to skiers and snowboarders. But, if for some reason, barrelling down hills on a stick or two isn’t your thing, there is also Nordic walking, snowshoeing, ice-skating, broomball, ice fishing, a 7.5 km sledge run, dog sledding, and snowmobiling.
