The prettiest resort of the famed Trois Vallées, with easy access to both the Courchevel and Val Thorens, Meribel really makes for an ideal base in which to explore every corner of France’s largest ski area. Méribel lies at the heart of the Three Valleys with Courchevel and Val Thorens being easily reached via efficient & easy piste & lift connection. For those that wish to venture even further, the fourth valley Orelle can be reached within a day’s skiing.
Beginner skiers will still feel in the thick of the action with the slopes being up in mountains rather than limited to in & around the centre – our particular favourite areas being Foret & Blanchot above Meribel Village (top tip – beat the morning crowds & take the Golf Lift from Méribel Village instead of from the crowded Chaudanne). Intermediates will enjoy seeking out some of the red and black runs that can be found at the higher altitudes of Les Menuires, served up with spectacular views. With around 200 lifts and over 600km of pistes and limitless powder opportunities the advanced skier will be in their element and almost spoilt for choice.
The village itself has been constructed in traditional Savoyarde style using only wood, stone and slate, making it architecturally pleasing on the eye. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit every taste and plenty of activities to do off the slopes too. A resort with bags of alpine charm, breath-taking scenery and vast amounts of fabulous skiing, we can completely understand its continuing popularity.
