Méribel - delightful resort with guaranteed snow

Sensational Three valleys skiing virtually from your doorstep. Lying at the heart of the world’s biggest inter-linked ski area with its endless variety of terrain, Méribel has plenty to offer all ages and all levels, a perfect location for your next Esprit family ski holiday! The Méribel valley offers a combination of cruisy glades and open boulevards, which enjoy both morning and afternoon sun, and the huge state-of-the-art lift system allows guests to access the full 600kms of slopes with ease.

Certainly Méribel’s location in the middle valley is a major benefit, putting both Courchevel on the one side and the guaranteed snow of Val Thorens and the Glacier de Péclet on the other within easy reach.

Esprit Classic Childcare

For parents our Esprit Classic Childcare offers a completely seamless service and means being able to leave your accommodation after breakfast to head for the first lift, only needing to return after the last one shuts. We look after you children completely throughout the ski day if you wish. For the kids it means non-stop fun with english speaking staff and children!

Collection Service

Five mornings a week, children in Esprit Sprite classes are collected from the hotel’s meeting point by our staff (and/or the ski school instructors) and taken to the appropriate slopes for their lessons or to the Snow Club for morning fun.

At the end of the morning lesson or Snow Club, children joining Supervised Lunch, afternoon Snow Club or with afternoon Sprite or Spritelet sessions will be collected and returned to the Alba for lunch.

Snow Club

The Snow Club is based in the Alba with outings for their specific snow fun activities. All children in afternoon Sprites or Spritelets will be taken to and collected from their session by our staff and will join the Snow Club children for the remainder of the afternoon, before high tea.

The Skiing in Méribel

The Skiing

Ski range from 1,300 - 3,230m


Whether you are skiing or snowboarding, Méribel is considered one of the best places in the Alps to learn, with excellent English-speaking instructors and plentiful easier runs to move onto once you have mastered the basics on the nursery slopes.


With a Three Valleys lift-pass, intermediates can explore 600kms of pisted snow, all fully inter-connected, and in a full week in the Three Valleys you may rarely ski the same run twice. The runs on the Saulire side are all excellent and there are convenient patches of off-piste that run alongside the reds, so you can practice your fresh snow techniques without going too far afield.


Advanced skiers can attack giant bumps and steep couloirs or simply notch up the mileage, cruising the whole magnificent system. High up on Mont Vallon the going gets tough, with excellent off-piste and some testing long runs, or you can try out the famous couloirs of the Saulire and the tricky bumps of the Chanrossa.

Powder Potential

Either side of the Bartevelle mogul fields there are great powder possibilities after a fresh fall, as there are on the high altitude, open snow-bowls of Val Thorens. With so much space to choose from across this huge area, you have a great chance of finding un-tracked powder for some time after each fresh snowfall.


Méribel is a great resort for boarders, and the whole Three Valleys has many snow-parks for boarders to practice their tricks and jumps. The Mottaret snow-park is the most popular, and is served by its own chairlift. It has a vertical drop of more than 300m, with two half-pipes, two quarter-pipes, three tables, one spine, and a 700m long four-man boarder-cross course!

Après Ski

Méribel is one of the liveliest resorts in the Alps, so there is always plenty going on. There is ample choice of family-friendly restaurants to choose from on your Chalet Hotel staff’s one night off, as well as fine-dining restaurants like the Grand Coeur and La Chaudanne.


  • Sports centre with heated pool     * Olympic ice-skating and hockey
  • Bowling
  • Paragliding
  • Husky Sledding
  • Horse-drawn sleigh rides
  • Snowmobiling in Mottaret
  • Sightseeing flights

Other Amenities

  • 95 shops
  • Banks
  • Health club with squash court and gym
