Club Med will open its first five-star resort in Utah

December 1, 2021

Home to some of the greatest snow on earth, Snowbasin—located about a half hour from Salt Lake City–will welcome a new all-inclusive resort with the opening of Club Med Utah, scheduled for December 2024, reports Forbes.

The ribbon-cutting will celebrate the brand’s first ‘Exclusive Collection’ Five-Star resort in the United States, as well as the brand’s first new resort in the USA in more than 20 years.

“Club Med is known for pioneering new destinations, and we are eager to introduce Snowbasin to travelers as well as bring the very first luxury all-inclusive mountain resort to the U.S.,” Carolyne Doyon, president and CEO of Club Med North America and the Caribbean said in a statement.

While the architecture and decor is said to be inspired by the area’s natural surroundings, the 320-room resort will combine American luxury with Club Med’s trademark all-inclusive experience.

In addition to lift tickets, all day dining and nightly entertainment, the resorts direct ski-in, ski-out access—as well as ski and snowboarding lessons—will be a big part of the draw for guests who stay here.

During the warmer months guests will have the opportunity to explore area’s 3,000 acres of peaks and valleys through guided activities like hiking through national parks, mountain biking, and Club Med’s trademark circus activities.

“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,” Doyon said.

The announcement comes on the heels of the opening of Club Med Quebec which will officially open its doors to the public this month.
