Meribel

About

The charming resort of Meribel is located in the heart of the world-famous Three Valleys area which gives access to 600km of sweeping pistes, exciting off-piste skiing and a number of beautiful pistes that weave down through the village, which when lit up at night is a spectacular scene. Meribel has excellent links to Courchevel, Val Thorens and La Tania, which offer an unlimited ski area. The car-free resort itself consists of beautiful chalet style architecture with wooden and stone buildings. There is a lively après-ski scene, superb restaurants and off-slope activities for all ages.

What needs improving

The Trois Valleys is an extensive resort, make the most of it by getting a guide for your first day.

Some of the slopes have high exposure to the sun so best to ski in the morning and then move to Courchevel or Val Thorens.
