Meribel lies in the Les Allues Valley at the centre of the world’s largest ski area, The Three Valleys, giving access to over 600km of piste and unlimited off-piste. Discover panoramas and magnificent scenery stretching from the Mont Blanc massif in the north to the Les Ecrins massif in the south, as well as a unique view over the Swiss and Italian Alps to the north and east that the Three Valleys offer.
In a few hours you can reach the summit of the the Trois Vallées massif, the Pointe de Thorens (3266 m) at Val Thorens, by means of the efficient and rapid ski lifts in the area. Enjoy all the thrills of skiing down the pistes of the Saulire massif at between 1300 and 2700 m between the forest and the high mountains.
Meribel’s perennial popularity is due not only to its extensive skiing, but also to the attractive chalet-style architecture. Unlike many purpose-built ski resorts, Meribel has retained its Alpine charm and consists entirely of chalet-style wood and stone buildings.
The valley also includes a number of traditional villages: Meribel is the largest of these and home to the main shopping area and the greatest selection of après-ski bars and restaurants in the area. The bi-weekly street market adds charm and sense of tradition to the town centre & provides an alternative activity hub for time off the slopes.
In summer, the resort opens during July and August when mountain biking, walking, golf, children’s clubs and dozens of other activities are on offer.
