Méribel - delightful resort with guaranteed snow

Lying at the heart of the world’s biggest inter-linked ski area, Méribel has plenty to offer all ages and all levels.The Méribel valley alone 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 600km 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 side within easy reach. The resort itself has a friendly village atmosphere, with plenty to see and do.
