Welcome to Méribel
Founded by British Colonel Peter Lindsay in 1930s, the French ski resort of Méribel has remained favourite with the British as well as the French for many years. Méribel sits centre stage at the heart of Les Trois Vallées; the World's largest linked skiing area. Courchevel, La Tania, St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires and Val Thorens are all just a ski lift away, forming a vast skiers paradise with over 600kms of groomed pistes and unlimited off-piste.
Unlike many purpose-built French resorts, Méribel has retained its Alpine charm and continues to consist entirely of chalet-style wood and stone buildings. The resort is situated between 1450m and 1700m with a separate satellite village Meribel-Mottaret at 1700-1800m. Lower in the valley are several traditional villages including Méribel Village (not to be confused with Méribel Centre, where we are located) accessed via the blue "lapin" run, and Les Allues and Raffort that are linked to the main Méribel lift system by the Olympic Gondola, installed for the Albertville Winter Olympics in 1992.
Méribel has an impressive array of non-skiing pursuits from which to choose; walking, snow shoeing, parasailing, snow biking and scenic flights are just some of the activities available. In addition to the vast skiing terrain of the Trois Vallées, Méribel offers a swimming pool (great for children) and many other Olympic-standard sports facilities. There is of course no shortage of apres-ski bars, restaurants and night clubs.
We think it is one of the most extensive, well equipped and beautiful resort in the world. We hope you think so too!
