Apres ski in Meribel

Live music is Meribel’s bread and butter. Perfect for a sunny afternoon on the slopeside terraces. When the epic apres institution of La Folie Douce plays second fiddle to some seriously good bars you know you’re in for a good time.

Where to stay in Meribel?

Make sure you check which area of the resort your accommodation is in and that that's where you want to be. The centre is the lively hub, Meribel Village is close to the slopes and Mottaret is pretty much ski in, ski out and a wonderful resort in itself. We have a range of accommodation in Meribel to suit your needs. Choose from Chalets in Meribel, suitable for small to large groups with self-catering facilities or a Hotel handpicked for ski ease and superb levels of service. Alternatively, you have a huge choice Self Catered Apartments which provide your own space, convenience and flexibility in luxury or great value surroundings.

What's happening in Meribel?

  • Family cool ski area, by the Altiport, with Inuit entertainers all season long with plenty of games and activities for some warm-hearted fun
  • Back to the wild wooden sculpture perfect for a selfie, plus there are high tech wooden cabins on the pistes for picnics, glove warming and phone charging to go with the stunning views
  • La Saulire by night - Private lift up the mountain before enjoying an aperitif as the sun sets and then a ski descent guided by the light of your flaming torch and local guides on a freshly groomed piste for your small group (something unique for your next ski holiday?)

    Pistes in Meribel

    Meribel's position in the heart of the world-famous Three Valley ski area gives access to 600km of pistes and unlimited off-piste skiing making this ski resort popular with all types of Winter Sport enthusiasts. For beginners, head on over to Méribel Altiport, a perfect for learning. Intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders, you have several excellent mogul fields plus the famous couloirs in Courchevel and Mont Vallon in Meribel which is a fantastically long and challenging piste with guaranteed snow.

    A lack of snow is never a problem in Méribel, with their brilliant snowmaking machines ensuring skiing on the lower slopes, you really do not need to worry. The odd run can get a bit slushy due to the afternoon sunshine much later in the season, but you have Val Thorens & Courchevel on either side to supply the high altitude skiing.

We understand this and that is why we offer to pre-book all your equipment so that it is ready and waiting for you. You can either collect it from the shop yourself or some shops even offer a chalet fitting service, where all the equipment will be brought around to the chalet, thus avoiding the ski hire shop completely.
