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.

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.
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.
Kids love the Yéti Park and outdoor games on offer at the Inuit Piste village, with entertainment including an eagle show and huskies, while the Olympic Centre has a pool, spa, ice rink, gym and climbing wall. A cabaret kicks off the party at après ski bar la Folie Douce at 2pm every day, while there are plenty of bars and restaurants, including the Michelin-starred L’Ekrin.
