Unlike many purpose-built French resorts Meribel has retained its Alpine charm, consisting entirely of chalet-style wood and stone buildings, and the resort offers superb nightlife and varying activities. The perfect combination of epic skiing, amazing location and the picturesque scenery makes Meribel one of the most popular destinations for British and French holiday-makers.

Meribel also has a rich history which gives it an alpine charm over its sister resorts but also offers ultra modern lift system so all skiing in Méribel is enjoyed by all abilities. The 3 Valleys has a fantastic snow record due to it's high altitude. With 85% of the ski area is over 1800m including 10 summits above 2500m and 6 glaciers. There are 2007+ snow cannons across the ski area to increase coverage.

What's Happening?

Great news for those who only want to ski a under 4 hours a day with the new 4 hour lift pass in the 3 Valleys for 2017/18. This replaces the previous morning and afternoon passes, giving skiers more flexibility and freedom to ski when they want and enjoy all the non-ski activities that is on offer.

Skiing & 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 rarely a problem in Méribel, with their snowmaking machines increasingly used and new ones being built. Some of the runs tend to get slushy because of the afternoon sunshine later in the season, but you have Val Thorens just next door to supply the high altitude skiing.

We know how valuable your skiing time is to you so that is why we can to pre-book your lift passes for you, to save you the time and hassle of doing it once in resort. No additional charge!

The lift passes will be ready and waiting for you in your chalet/hotel/apartment, so you can hit the slopes immediately! You can book these at any time after you've booked.

Ski & equipment hire

The last thing you want to do at the start of your holiday is queue up in a crowded ski hire shop. 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.
