Situated in the heart of the world’s largest ski area, Meribel’s reputation has been built on its extensive choice of pistes and breath-taking scenery. This charming alpine resort spans the mountainside, with its lift system stretching up to an altitude of 2952 metres.
The highly efficient Three Valleys' lift system, consists of over 200 ski lifts, connecting eight resorts, so the vast choice of pistes will offer you something new every day. You are sure to find a suitable area, no matter what your ability. Gentle beginners ski slopes line the lower valleys and more challenging blue, red and black runs can be found at the higher altitudes with dramatic views of the surrounding mountains.
There is plenty to look forward that will enhance your winter holiday experience in Meribel and the Three Valleys during the winter season ahead!
Meribel and Courchevel will host the FIS World Ski Championships during the period 6-19 February. This promises to be an exciting fortnight with the top skiers of downhill, Super G & slalom proving why they are at the top of their skiing careers. Watch the ski racing from the Grandstand at La Chaudanne or from the viewing areas by the side of the piste. In addition to the ski events there will be a great atmosphere around the resort with strolling bands and concerts to add to the festivities. Please contact us if you need more information about these events and how to book tickets.
This season Meribel has a new black piste which starts at the top of the Bouquetin chair lift, called IBEX and no doubt will be on all the keen skiers bucket list this winter! Aside from the thrill of skiing this piste the views will be some of the best across the Meribel valley.
We will continue to add to this as and when we have any exciting updates for the season ahead.
Meribel centre is charming and has a traditional alpine village atmosphere, with a good selection of shops and cafes – not to mention some of the best après-ski in the Alps! Away from the slopes, you can journey on horse-drawn sleigh rides, enjoy beautiful walks and guided snow shoe outings through the altiport forest, take a paragliding adventure, and try out ice-skating and snow mobiling.
For those wanting to relax and enjoy some pampering, the swimming pool & spa area at the 'parc olympic' provides the perfect place to indulge yourself. If shopping is more your thing a market can also be found in Meribel centre each Tuesday & Friday and there is a good selection of boutiques and shops in Meribel.
Meribel has so much to offer families both on and off the snow. At the Parc Olympic you will find the pool, ice skating rink and climbing wall, perfect activities for after a busy day on the slopes. This season why not visit the Inuit Village at the Altiport to build igloos, have snowball fights, play golf on snow and even meet a musher and his sled dogs. Take fun photos of your group in the giant picture frames scattered around the resort or head to the newly named Elements Park, which was the previous Moon Park to learn some freestyle!
