Méribel is the resort for serious skiers and boarders who want access to the world’s largest playground of pistes but also want the classic charms of a typically French ski village. The question is which one to go for? There are actually five villages that make up Méribel, connected by buses and lifts, ranging from Méribel Les Allues at 1,100m to Méribel Mottaret at 1,750m.
The main appeal of the resort is its location – it sits plum in the middle of the epic Les Trois Vallées area, which boasts up to 600km of pistes and eight snowparks for all abilities across the resorts of Courchevel and Val Thorens. The slopes are high too, meaning good cover all season.
