Description

Located in the centre of the Three Valleys, Méribel is one of the most popular resorts for British holidaymakers. The resort was first founded in 1938 by Peter Lindsay, and a year later he founded the first chalet. Méribel is a lovely traditional resort with fantastic skiing to suit all abilities. The Three Valleys is the largest ski area in the world comprising of 600km of connected piste. (In fact, the total ski area is four times larger than Paris!)

Méribel Centre sits at 1600m – 1700m but the resort is spread across different areas – Brides les Bains (600m), Les Allues (1200m), Méribel Village (1400m) and Méribel Mottaret (1750m). 85% of the resort is situated at 1800m or above offering guaranteed snow throughout the winter, and the pistes are kept in top condition with the help of 2,000 snow cannons and 80 piste grooming machines.

Méribel is an all-round resort and attracts every type of holidaymaker. It has an excellent après and nightlife scene so is a popular choice for groups wanting to party, but is also has excellent ski schools and lots of childcare so makes a popular choice for families heading to the Alps. Méribel offers a host of accommodation options to suit all budgets from self catering apartments to luxury chalets and hotels. The resort offers amazing skiing and plenty of activities off the piste as well so it’s no surprise it is one of the Europe’s best rated resorts.

Transfers from the airport

There are several companies who offer shared and private transfers to get you to and from the airport and resort. It is worth checking transfers arrangements before booking your flights especially if you are looking for a shared transfer as these are less regular and you don’t want to be waiting around for hours at the airport.

The train operates every Saturday between December and April, and night trains on Fridays from January to April. Taking the train can be a good option if you have lots of luggage to take as the generous allowance means you can take your skis and snowboard as well as two suitcases at no extra charge. The transfer from Moutier to Méribel is approximately 25 minutes. 

Drive

If you are planning on driving out to resort from the UK, you can either travel via the channel tunnel or take the ferry. The euro tunnel departs approximately every 15 minutes from Folkestone and takes 35 minutes. Prices start from £90 each way. You can book your crossing online at - https://www.eurotunnel.com/uk/home/.
The ferry runs from either Hull to Zeebrugge or Dover to Calais with P&O ferries - http://www.poferries.com/en/portal.  The Hull ferry operates daily and is overnight arriving in Zeebrugge at 08:45am. The Dover to Calais service operates up to 23 times each day and takes 90 minutes.  

On arrival in France (or Belgium if you are taking the ferry to Zeebrugge!) remember to drive on the right hand side of the road. It is important to note that there are several tolls on route down to the Alps, the prices depend on which section of road you use but the total cost will be approximately €75 in total.
European travel/vehicle requirements are very strict and on-spot fines can be issued if you don’t have: headlight converters, GB sticker, warning triangle, spare bulbs, breathalysers and high viz vests for each passenger in the vehicle. 

In certain weather conditions, the roads may become snowy and icy and although local municipalities are very good and keeping the roads clear, it can be dangerous so it is important to take extra care and attention when driving. It is a legal requirement in France to carry snow chains in your vehicle or police will refuse you access to certain roads. When driving in these conditions, slow down when you encounter any snow, use high gears to avoid wheel spin, and keep moving when driving up an incline on the snow. .


When to Go


Where to Stay

Méribel is made up of 4 main villages:

•    Méribel Centre - 1450m
•    Méribel Mottaret - 1750m
•    Méribel Village - 1400m
•    Méribel Les Allues - 1100m

Méribel Centre

Méribel centre is the largest and most widely known part of the resort. The resort centre is very pretty and has a lovely traditional feel. There is a wide selection of accommodation options here to suit all budgets however due to the layout of the village there are very few ski in/ski out chalets. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants so lots of activities for non skiers.

The resort centre is made up of 3 areas – Mussillon, Centre and Morel.
Mussillon is a quiet area and is approximately 7-10 minutes’ walk from the centre and you would need to get a bus/driver service to the slopes.

Centre is where the majority of shops, bars and restaurant are.  There are very few chalets here and it can be relatively noisy but the centre offers easy access to the slopes as there is an escalator that takes you onto the Doron piste.

Morel is very quiet with a couple of bars, shops and restaurants. The morel area is approximately 10/15 minutes walk from the centre but it does offer easy access to skiing via the Morel chairlift.

 Mottaret

Mottaret is the highest village in Méribel sitting at 1750m. The village is purpose built so isn’t the most attractive village however accommodation is generally slightly cheaper here with plently of ski in/ski out accommodation. Mottaret is the best location for accessing the whole ski area however is can has busy runs at the end of the day as it is the hub for people going back to Méribel and Courchevel. There is very little nightlife in Mottaret and not a lot going on for non skiers.

Village

Village is a very pretty part of resort offering excellent ski access via the Golf Chairlift, however there is no ski school meeting point here. There are chalets in Village to suit all budgets and is home to the Lodge du Village which some say is the best après bar is resort!

Les Allues

Le Allues is a charming village located lower down the valley. Accommodation is much cheaper here and is very quiet with one pub and only a couple of restaurants. For ski access, the Olympic gondola runs up to La Chaudanne and takes approximately 15 minutes. You are able to ski back down to Les Allues but the piste does close if there isn’t enough snow.

 There are also a few smaller village in the Méribel valley with a couple of chalets dotted around – Rond Point – Belevedere, Le Raffort, Le Gittaz, Nantgerel.

Group Ski



Childcare

Although it’s quite a spread out resort, Meribel is family-friendly in many ways. For parents bringing the kids to the resort, Meribel is a resort with a wealth of activities on and off the snow to keep the kids happy, challenged and entertained all week long.
Childcare in Meribel falls under three categories: In-house, external nanny or creche facilities.

If you’re keen on Meribel and you want in-house childcare, you need to consider the Hotel Alba. Everything from nursery to ski lessons and kids’ clubs is catered for under one roof, making life very easy for parents! http://interactiveresorts.co.uk/france/meribel/alba - Other options along the same lines are Meribel’s Club Med properties. Spectacularly well located and offering an all-in price which makes for excellent value for money, they are an attractive prospect for many: http://interactiveresorts.co.uk/france/meribel/club-med-meribel-antares

External nanny companies in Meribel are superb, and many of them have strong reputations going back years. Whether you need all-day childcare or just half-day with ski school pickups, there are services to match your requirements. Standout companies include Merinannies (http://www.merinannies.com/ ) and Jelly and Ice Cream (http://www.jellyandice-cream.com/childcare-in-meribel/ ) who both offer highly qualified child carers with UK-based qualifications.

For toddlers keen to get a taste for the snow, Meribel’s ESF ski school run a nursery area, the Piou-Piou Garden, where kids are looked after for the day and taken onto the nursery slope for their first experiences of skiing. http://www.ski-school-meribel-mottaret.com/children Exciting obstacles, toys and games make their days exciting and interesting, and the level of care is excellent.

Aside from the childcare, Meribel’s ski schools also welcome children of all ages and standards for lessons and, unsurprisingly for a resort of this calibre, the level of tuition is outstanding. The vast majority of the schools meet down at the base of the lifts in La Chaudanne, so they are easy to find. There are many excellent ski schools in Meribel but a good place to start is Magic in Motion: http://www.magic-meribel.com/uk/index.aspx

For parents hoping to enjoy a few non-ski activities with the kids, Meribel has a wealth of options to suit all tastes. The Sport Centre offers a climbing wall, swimming pool and a host of other pursuits. The ice rink offers skating, ice hockey matches and even ice-karting too, and the gentle hills near the base of the lifts are the perfect place to enjoy a spot of tobogganing.


The Piste

Beginners

Méribel has two designated beginner areas with free lifts, one in Mottaret (zen zone) and one at the Altiport (ski cool zone).
In 2016, Mottaret spent millions on redesigning its beginner area. It now has its own magic carpet and drag lift as well as the Combes chair serves the new Little Himalaya beginner run. Mottaret has two ‘zen zones’ which are easy slopes dedicated to learners.

In Meribel centre, there are plenty of beginner friendly areas. The Petit Moon at Rond Point is great for kids and the Chemin des Ecoliers which is located near the DC Area 43 snowpark above Mottaret is more popular with adults. There are 24 blue runs in Méribel so plenty of piste to explore when you are ready to progress from the nursery slopes.
 
Intermediates

Some of the best intermediate slopes are located south of Mottaret, at the head of the valley which are accessed by the Plattieres gondola from Mottaret. The red Combe Vallon piste from the top of the Mont du Vallon gondola and the Face run from the top of the Roc der Fer are good options for the more experienced skiers.

Experts

Méribel doesn’t have the best skiing for experts but its central position in the Three Valleys mean that expert skiers who are based there can easily access pistes in other valleys. The Bartavelle and Bosses black runs are the best for bumps although the resort does have a tendency to keep these pistes mogul free. Le Face run which hosted the women’s Olympic downhill is a great place for unpisted powder. Some of the best off piste are found at the Mont Vallon valley between the Combe de Vallon and Campagnol pistes.


Ski School

There is a large selection of ski schools in Méribel who offer both private and group lessons for all skiing/boarding abilities. Group lessons are more sociable and normally work out cheaper however they are not normally as intense as one-to-one tuition. The majority of ski schools will be happy to talk through the different options available for you and assess your skiing ability to determine which class will be most suitable.

Although it is not mandatory, it is advisable to pre book your ski school in advance as availability is limited and lessons may sell out, especially if travelling on a peak week (Christmas, New Year, Half Term, Easter)
