Méribel is nestled in the heart of The Three Valleys in the French Alps. With its central and accessible position, Méribel’s location is unrivalled and by staying here you’ll have access to the staggering 600 km of ski terrain available across the Three Valleys.

Anyone looking to master their first turns on the snow, Méribel is home to some incredible beginner friendly zones. The Yeti park in Méribel-Mottaret is dedicated to new skiers and snowboarders and is surrounded by gentle, wide runs leaving beginners to enjoy the slopes in peace. Altiport is another fantastic option, perfect for learners. The long, wide green run nestled in the middle of the surrounding forest makes it a beautiful spot to gain some new skills.

For a cruisy blue – take the Chapelets chairlift and follow signs to the snow park but instead take the lovely wide blue run just to the left. It’s always groomed to perfection and is generally quite quiet compared to the adjoining piste next door. From here it would be a shame not to visit Mont Valon with a staggering summit of 2,952m – the ski down is a little windy and steep but the views at the top make it worthwhile!

In our opinion, two of the most underrated runs in Méribel are Faon and Blaireau, accessible from the top of the Tougnette 2 lift. They are typically quiet, well-groomed and perfect for both the speedsters and cruisers. Trust us – you’ll struggle to stop lapping these pistes. Once you have had enough, take a pit stop at the stunning Maya Altitude. It’s pure luxury, and a gorgeous spot for a mountainside lunch break or hot chocolate.

When a fresh dump of powder arrives, you may want to be in the deep stuff. Head straight towards the Loze chair where you can hop in and out of the trees for some gentle off-piste or try the controlled off-piste zone located off the top of the Saulire ski lift.

Méribel is an absolutely perfect ski resort for anyone and everyone. It has something to offer every level and ability, and it’s quite honestly, one of the most stunning ski resorts in France. To book a luxury holiday chalet in Méribel, click here.
