ski the rockies vs. ski the alps?

Gourmet dining. Ski lessons. Ski lift. Free wi-fi. Open bar, day and night. That sounds to us like the very definition of an all-inclusive ski vacation. And where would you find that? Um, not in the Rockies. In the Alps!

Our preferred provider, Club Med, has really great deals on all-inclusive packages at their ski resorts in France and Italy. If you've always thought that a family skiing vacation in Europe was out-of-reach, maybe it really isn't.
