SKI IN  MÉRIBEL AND LES TROIS  VALLÉES

Skiing in Meribel 3 Vallees

Méribel is one of the Europe’s premier ski resorts, situated in the middle of the biggest ski area in the world called Les Trois  Vallées (The 3 Valleys) in the French Alps. Méribel has some of the best skiing available from high altitude all the way down to tree lined pistes further below down the valley. It has one of the most up-to-date lift systems available ensuring non-stop enjoyment time on the pistes. With almost 700 snow cannons and an unlimited water supply, you can expect to find great snow cover during the winter on much of the mountain.

Méribel's History

Méribel was co-founded by Colonel Peter Lindsey in 1938 which may explain why it is one of the most popular ski resorts for British visitors. Méribel has retained is beautiful alpine charm due to strict building regulations, and prides itself on being one of the prettiest purpose built villages, enhanced by some lovely rustic hamlets further down the valley. It’s popularity isn’t only due to the attractive chalet-style architecture, but it’s facilities in resort. There are numerous high quality restaurants, shops, bars and nightclubs all conveniently situated around the resort. Méribel hosted some of the events during the 1992 winter Olympics, including most ice hockey matches and several of the Ladies Alpine Ski Races. The Olympic centre currently offers a recently opened health and wellness centre, a swimming pool, a ten pin bowling alley and other facilities.
