MOUNTAINS

Meribel is in the centre of the 3 Valleys, the largest interconnected ski area in the world.

The Meribel valley has some very varied riding with good beginner areas around the Altiport, varied runs on both sides of the valley and more advanced riding off Mont Vallon at the top end of the valley. Off piste wise the Loze sector offers amazing tree riding for when the snow is falling and when the sun is shining the west side of the valley from Tougnette to Mont Vallon gives world class powder turns. Of special note is the area off the Olympic Lift with unbelievable descents down to La Raffort and Les Allues.

For those wishing to head further afield the Courchevel Valley is known as one of the worlds best resorts with awe inspiring peaks and couloirs down to amazing tree runs like Folieres in La Tania. For those looking for a chilled out session are best to head for the rolling terrain of 1650 or if you want to challenge yourself to some of the most iconic rides of the Alps hiking the peaks and couloirs of Courchevel is a must.

On the other side is the Belleville Valley with the resorts of Saint-Martin, Les Menuires and Val Thorens. The Belleville Valley contains a huge amount of terrain for all Levels with plentiful off-piste from Jersusalem powder fields to Orelle. Of special note is the area of La Masse in Les Menuires which stays quiet even on the busiest weeks and offers awesome riding both on and off piste.

The 3 Valleys has cracking freestyle with a number of parks for different levels. In Meribel there are two main parks with the Moon Park catering for Beginner & Intermediate Riders whereas the iconic DC Park is the winter home of the Backflipping Double Cork Rider. If you wish to travel further afield there are parks in Courchevel, Val Thorens and Les Menuires along with magnificent natural terrain in La Tania, Loze, Petit Alaska, Marioland and Orelle.

If split boarding and hiking are more your scene then the 3 Valleys is the place to be. The fringes of the 3 Valleys offers spectacular tours with Les Avals, the Bourne Glacier and La Masse offering the sort of classic routes that will blow your mind and give you some tales for Apres.

On the apres scene Meribel is world-reknowned with the famous Rond Point sun terrace right off the piste. The Folie Douce is another classic apres spot at Saulire Mid Station with table dancing and champagne showers being the order of the day. From there many of the pubs and bars in the different parts of Meribel have live bands playing into the evening.

For those looking for a night out with great beer and great company head to Downtown in Mottaret, LDV in Meribel Village and Jacks Bar and La Taverne in Meribel Centre. All of these offer live bands and DJs with Sunday and Tuesday nights being the busiest. For those wishing to carry on the night O’Sullivan’s pump tunes until 5 in the morning.
