Skiing in Meribel

Country: France

In a nutshell: A British favourite with a pretty woodland setting, great nightlife and amazing location in the heart of the world’s biggest ski area

We like:

  • The best located resort for exploring the enormous 3 Valleys ski area. If epic mileage is on your agenda, Meribel is hard to beat
  • Attractive chalet style architecture and a pretty setting in a sheltered woodland valley
  • Great apres ski and lots of offer for those looking to party
  • The modern and efficient lift network means more time skiing

We don’t like:

  • It’s a busy resort and skiers seeking back-to-nature solitude probably won’t like it
  • It’s central location in the 3 Valleys means some of the connecting pistes and lifts can get crowded
  • The runs to resorts are steeper than in most resorts and beginners might find a Meribel ski holiday overly challenging

RESORT DESCRIPTION

More brits take a Meribel ski holiday over anywhere else, and this is down to it’s winning combination of amazing skiing, attractive resort and great apres ski. Meribel is actually spread over a few different bases along the valley, the most popular of which are Meribel Village, Meribel Centre and Meribel-Mottaret.

As it’s name suggests, Meribel Centre is where most of the action happens and is the liveliest base, Meribel Village is a quiet and attractive village with easy access to Meribel Centre. Meribel Mottaret has the highest altitude and a good option for early and late season ski holidays, but is less attractive than the other bases.

Regardless of where you stay, the skiing is epic. Meribel itself is a large enough area with great intermediate skiing and lots of challenging skiing for advanced and expert skiers. Upgrade to the 3 Valleys ski pass and you have access to the world’s biggest ski area. The scale of the ski area is staggering and if for skiers looking to clock up some serious miles on their ski holiday, it is faultless.

Beginners are less well served in Meribel as the runs to the valley are quite challenging and can get busy, so skiers on their first ever ski holiday are better served by the other resorts in the 3 Valleys. It’s by no means bad for beginners though as there are some good nursery slopes, and novice skiers in a mixed ability group will find it hard to not enjoy themselves.
