Meribel

Méribel encompasses three villages – Méribel (also known as Meribel Centre), Méribel-Mottaret and Méribel Village. With wood clad and chalet-style buildings, it is one of the most tastefully-designed of all French purpose-built ski resorts, with lots of fun for families and great nightlife.

Season

December 9, 2017 – April 22, 2018

Ski area

The Méribel Valley has 144 kilometres of terrain at an altitude of 1,100 to 1,750 metres and 23 lifts. It includes six green trails, 16 blue trails, nine red trails and four blacks. The terrain park Element Park has four zones catering to all levels, while DC Area 43 also has everything from a rookie zone to a pro zone for experienced freestylers, with kickers, rails and a superpipe. On-mountain restaurant Le Clos Bernard is a lovely place to enjoy a long lunch in the sunshine.

Accommodation

Méribel Centre is the most centrally located of the three villages, making it an ideal base to explore the Three Valleys. It offers a wider choice of accommodation than many other resorts, from basic hotel rooms to upscale apartments and chalets.

Meribel villages:

Meribel les Allues is more commonly referred to as Meribel. One of the most tastefully designed of French purpose built resorts, all the buildings are wood-clad and chalet style, offering a picturesque setting for all ski holiday makers.

Meribel Les Allues is the original village with its ancient church and village oven. Here there are 3 restaurants, 1 English bar, supermarket, ski/board shop, and newsagents. This is the nearest you will get in Meribel to a small traditional style village. It has its own direct gondola link to the main town of Meribel-Mottaret, which takes approximately 15 minutes.

Meribel Mottaret, usually just called Mottaret is a satellite resort higher up the mountain from Meribel Les Allues. Purpose built for slope-side convenience, ski holidays in Meribel-Mottaret are a good choice for ski in ski out and great for early or late season skiing due to its great location to the rest of the Three Valleys and the ski areas snow sure reputation.

Mottaret is much quieter than Meribel Les Allues with fewer bars and restaurants, however, there are local free buses that run regularly between the villages. There is also a pedestrian gondola that links the two villages of Meribel and Mottaret, so one can enjoy the apres ski in Les Allues before getting back to the ski chalet for dinner on your ski holidays in Meribel-Mottaret. The gondola stops running at 7.30pm.

Approximately 2 miles out of town is Meribel Village. Developed only a few years ago, this village is very small and up market with luxury apartments and Méribel ski chalets, served by its own chairlift to Meribel Altiport.

Méribel le Raffort is another village also just out of town, with one restaurant and a gondola connection to the main ski resort. Raffort is mainly privately run chalets that usually have their own minibus service.

The resort itself, provides its guest with instant access to 144km of runs (71% of them being of intermediate difficulty level), which are located in the Meribel Valley.
