Beloved by generations of British skiers for its impressive snow records and amazing location in the Three Valleys

About Meribel

Meribel, or ‘La Belle-Grand-Mère’, (Beautiful Grandmother!) is just over 2 hours from Geneva which enables you to get to resort in around 4 hours from leaving the UK.

The 3 Valleys ski area climbs all the way up to a peak of 3200m, which helps maintain the domains excellent snow record, and the pisteurs are excellent at keeping the snow in good condition throughout the season, that is why we pay more for our lift passes here.

Why we love Meribel!

The off piste is easy to get to and there’s lots of it, for all levels - not just the experts. This means it doesn’t get tracked too quickly and it isn’t too ‘steep and deep’. In fact you can find fresh stuff 10 days after a snowfall, if you know where to go.

The Après-ski in Meribel is one very big plus point. The large British presence ensures some interesting and exciting nights can be had! The sheer variety of bars and restaurants covers all tastes - from O’Sullivans for the best late night venue - close to our chalet Camarine - to the Rond Point (the Ronny) which is THE best apres-ski venue and close to our chalet Martine.

The lift system is constantly evolving and improving. An example of speed improvement is the new Sauliers gondola which has carved nearly 65% of it's journey time to the top: from 25 mins down to 9 mins.

For Beginners

Meribel offers excellent English speaking, Brit-run ski and snowboard schools; and many of the learner slopes are up high, thus ensuring the beginners get good snow conditions are aren’t restricted to a simple set of resort-level nursery slopes.

Circuits of easy runs and wide open slopes help boost confidence and make it possible for beginners to see a big part of the mountain. The easy runs are so well kept and connected that a complete beginner can venture over to the next resort (Courchevel or St Martin) by the end of their first week.

For Intermediates and Advanced

Intermediate and Advanced skiers have numerous options within the 3 Valleys: from the steeper and faster skiing found near Val Thorens (one of the highest resorts in Europe) to the incredible off piste at Mont Vallon; not forgetting the famous 70+km circuit (achievable in one day, thanks to the excellent lift network). The circuit spans the entire 3 Valleys domain, taking in a great cross section of slopes and terrain.

The Three Valleys offers excellent snowboarding with heaps of variety where skiers and boarders can cover a lot of mileage in one day, without having to see the same slopes twice. There is an extensive range of runs for all abilities and glacier access alongside our snow assurance if you are worried about snowfall, although to be fair this is one of the most snow-sure ski areas in Europe!
