Do you ever wonder where our Winter Olympians go to train?

Club Med is happy to be an official partner of the Olympic Winter Institute of Australia (OWIA). The OWIA takes care of the training of athletes and the coaching in sports involved in the Winter Olympics.

This partnership means Aussie Snow Olympians can perform at their best by staying, training, and recovering in Club Med’s ski resorts worldwide.

Put your skills to the test and bump arms with an Olympian on your next Club Med snow holiday!

Where do our Aussie Olympians stay?

Here’s how it works: ski cross champions practice at Club Med Val Thorens Sensations in France, snowboard cross shredders also enjoy the French Alps slopes from Club Med Valmorel, and aerial ski stars rise in the air at Club Med Beidahu in China.

Discover below Sami Kennedy-Sim’s experience on Club Med slopes with a series of four videos. The Australian freestyle skier made her second Olympic appearance at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games.

Balancing olympian ski life and personal life is not always easy as Sami explains here. She shows how lucky she is to have been on the road for 15 years now, and also 7 years of marriage. The ambition and drive to be at her best keeps her going in life.

Sami tells the story of her ski cross memories, failures and successes: from her best memory (first podium on world cup) to her aspirations to see more and more people to join the team and the Olympics.

The importance of having a team which is a kind of family on the road is a necessity to be successful together. Sami is happy to share these incredible experiences with her team.

Club Med supports our athletes with all of their training, eating and recovery needs. Sami highlights the importance of the training environment and the benefits that Club Med can offer, such as excellent nutrition, gym and direct access to the hills - all in one spot.
