Snow season in Europe is in full swing and Siv Ngesi and Katlego Maboe are two of the latest celebs spotted enjoying the slopes. The duo look to be spending time between two well-known all-inclusive Club Med resorts in the French Alps – Club Med Tignes and Club Med Val d’Isere.
This is not the first time Katlego has holidayed with Club Med. In 2016 he went skiing at their Val Thorens Sensations resort also in the French Alps. This time, though, Katlego is trying his hand at snowboarding, while Siv is skiing (fun fact: Siv spent 3 months at a ski resort in California 17 years ago!)
In addition to snowboarding and skiing, the duo have been spotted enjoying yoga sessions, hiking a glacier, and dancing up a storm on their trip. Katlego even treated guests at the Club Med Tignes resort to a little performance of Sister Bethina – with the most magnificent backdrop of snowcapped mountains.
Tignes, a group of villages that form a high-altitude ski resort in the French Alps, is popular as a snow destination for travellers looking for a snow holiday, with France being easily reached thanks to direct flights with Air France. In summer, the area offers outdoor enthusiasts a wide array of options to enjoy such as hiking, trails, golf, bike parks and more. The brand new Club Med Tignes resort (which opened its doors in December, and where Jo-Ann Strauss, Kefilwe Mabote and Tendai Mtawarira were spotted holidaying at two months ago) is located in the centre of the liveliest part of the Tignes ski domain, Val Claret, and sits at an altitude of 2100m – making it ideal for good snow conditions throughout the European snow season – being December to April.
The Club Med Val d’Isere resort (30 minute drive from Club Med Tignes) is part of Club Med’s Exclusive Collection, located near the Italian border and sits at an altitude of 1850m. Val d’Isere has a great reputation amongst skiers and snowboarders, and there is no surprise why. The ski area, combined with Tignes, forms I’Espace Killy, which offers around 300km of runs that will suit skiers and snowboarders from beginners to advanced. With 100 ski lifts connecting the runs, high altitudes of up to 3500m and access to glaciers, there’s no short supply of things to do when it comes to skiing in Val d’Isere.
