At over 80 years old Méribel’s as stunning and even more lively than ever.
Méribel is a long-standing favourite, not least for the 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.
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!
Méribel 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 Méribel sector alone.
There are many more very well maintained parks throughout the Trois Vallèes, 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!
