At almost 80 years old she’s as stunning and even more lively than ever.

Outstanding Méribel is a long-standing favourite, not least for her lively Aprés Ski scene. The first chalets popped up here in 1938 thanks to British skier Peter Lindsay’s vision of Méribel as a top resort.

A lot of money has been invested recently on the ski lift system which is now faster and more efficient than ever before, reaching the 300m highest point in a matter of minutes for good snow throughout the season.

About Meribel

Meribel itself provides the perfect conditions for beginners and early intermediates to quickly improve their skiing, with a range of challenging and not so challenging descents.

The facilities for snowboard holidays are superb, with three snow park and pipe options in the Meribel sector alone.

There are many more very well maintained parks throughout the Trois Vallees, all easily accessible and feature a good variety of hips, slides and jumps to suit all abilities. There is also a border cross course for varying levels of potential snowboard racers!

Beloved by generations of British skiers for its impressive snow record and its appetite for Apres Ski!

Beginner Skiing Meribel

Beginners tend to meet in central Meribel, congregating around the main Chaudanne area. Meribel itself has some very good beginner runs, however these do tend to be on the higher slopes.

This means that beginners are not stuck in potentially congested base areas, and being higher up ensures better, snow-sure conditions early on in the learning stages, which will help them feel part of the ski experience even more!

See our beginner ski page for more information.

The resort of Meribel has a plethora of ski schools, most English run - let alone English speaking! The level of tuition is varied but on the whole very good, as the ski and board schools can identify with the Brit-pack of clients that descend on their slopes each winter.

All beginners runs and novice slopes are higher up - so that they remain with good snow cover for the whole season.

About the Skiing & Boarding

Intermediate and Advanced skiers have numerous options within the Three Valleys, from the steeper and faster skiing found near Val Thorens (the highest resort in Europe) to the famous 76km circuit (achievable in one day, thanks to the excellent lift network). The circuit spans the entire Three Valleys domain, taking in a great cross section of slopes and terrain.

The Three Valleys offers excellent snowboarding with heaps of variety where skiers and boarders can cover alot of mileage in one day, without having to see the same slopes twice! There is an extensive range of runs for all abilities and glacier access alongside our snow assurance if you are worried about snowfall, although to be fair this is one of the most snow-sure ski areas in Europe!

Around Meribel

The Après-ski in Meribel is one very big plus point for this resort! The large British presence in the resort, ensures some interesting and exciting nights can be had!

The shear variety of bars and restaurants ensures that all tastes and appetites are catered for. O'Sullivans, formerly known as Dick's T Bar is known throughout the ski world, and a great place to start (or finish!) the night. Meribel also has two good nightclubs for the party people in your group!

There are some quieter venues for those easy going nights where food and wine are more important than packed bars and loud music.

The variety in Meribel is very good indeed, try Barometer for a not-so-heavy dose of après-ski and then wind your way up to the village square for more lively entertainment.
