We can’t believe that it’s almost time for another beautiful season in Meribel! There are just a couple weeks to go until our first guests join us in December and our chalets are filling up fast during the following months. If you’re still hoping to book with us please head to our Chalet availability page – we look forward to welcoming you to Meribel and sharing all the fantastic new resort improvements made over the summer.
If you’re a local in Meribel or have happened to visit since last season you’ll have seen that the resort has been a hive of activity. A whole lot of building work has been taking place to improve the three valley’s area for the upcoming season and we know both advanced and new skiers and snowboarders will love what they’ve done with the place!
A massive 60 million euros has been invested in our beautiful ski area and each summer more improvements will be made right up until 2022. Changes to the ski lifts have been a priority and the improvements will make all the difference during your time in Meribel.
Changes to chairlifts
The Roc de Tougne drags have been replaced with a fast chair lift and Arolles & Table Verte lifts a chair lift servicing the whole area. Returning from St Martin will be much faster using the upgraded St Martin 2 chair lift and it will be covered for those chilly days!
Improvements for beginners
Many of you joining Ski Cuisine this season will be just starting out with skiing, there’s nothing to be worried about as Meribel is now even more beginner-friendly. Mottaret has spent millions to redesign its beginner area for this season. There is a beginner-only area with its own magic carpet and draglift located at the top of the resort and a brand new Combes chairlift to serve a great new green run called Little Himalaya. If you want some peace and quiet away from more advanced skiers and snowboarders you can also head to Mottaret’s two “Zen Zones” where you’ll find slopes dedicated to learners practicing their turns.
Skiing at night
For those adventurous (or nocturnal) skiers and snowboarders amongst you, I’d recommend trying out the fantastic new floodlit night-time luge track. It’ll make a change to the normal restaurants, bars and clubs that we find ourselves enjoying après ski.
This year we even have free wifi access on the slopes! The network is available from 9am-5pm and you can connect at Lounge de la Chaudanne, Chaudanne lift pass office and Plan de l’Homme Chairlift. The top of Saulire will also soon be available.
