Stay cool, head to Japan

HAVING anxiety palpitations now the Aussie snow has melted for another year? Don't despair - just head to Japan.

Great airline deals with Virgin Blue and Jetstar mean Japan is now a totally accessible destination for all, especially ski bunnies.

And to top it off, Club Med in Sahoro is offering savings of $200 off their normal five night package deals if you book before November 30 and travel between November 28, 2009 and April 6, 2010.

You'll get five nights all-inclusive land stay packages from $1360 for adults and $700 for kids (age 4-11).

That includes accommodation, three gourmet meals a day, wine and beer with lunch and dinner, open bar and snacking, ski pass (from 4 years old up) and a half or full day ski school.

And the great thing is there are no “blackout” periods over school holiday time - but that doesn't mean you can dawdle: these deals will be quickly snapped up by savvy families looking for a Christmas break from the long hot summer in Australia.

For bookings and full terms and conditions, call Club Med on 1800 258 263 or go to
