Club Med has confirmed an expansion in the United States, with an all-inclusive mountain concept flagged to debut in Snowbasin Resort in Huntsville Utah, in December 2024. This new opening will mark the brand’s first-ever Exclusive Collection (5-Star) resort in the US as well as their first new resort in the US in more than 20 years.
President and CEO of Club Med, Henri Giscard D’Estaing, revealed the new Utah addition following the opening of Club Med Québec. Club Med already has more than 20 all-inclusive mountain resort properties across Canada, Europe, and Asia, and this move further cements Club Med’s expanding all-inclusive mountain product in the North American market.
“Our pioneering spirit has allowed us to successfully introduce our distinctive all-inclusive model to ski destinations worldwide and reshape what a traditional ski vacation looks like,” said Giscard d’Estaing. “Our first resort in Canada, Club Med Québec, delivers an unparalleled year-round mountain vacation experience through boundless cultural touchpoints that pay homage to the region, and we look forward to working alongside our partners to showcase Le Massif de Charlevoix’s incredible culture, warm spirit, and remarkable landscape. Looking ahead, we are delighted to bring Snowbasin their very first lodging property and introduce the spectacular region to travellers from all over the world.”
“Continuing our 70-year legacy, Club Med Utah will give travelers additional opportunities to discover Utah’s natural beauty and welcoming communities through a transformative mountain getaway experience,” said Carolyne Doyon, President and CEO of Club Med North America and the Caribbean.
