Resort Description

The tree shrouded, French resorts of Meribel and Mottaret are located in the Three Valleys ski area, giving you 600K of high altitude pistes to explore!

Competent skiers will relish the off-pistes challenges and the Olympic Downhill run on La Face is guaranteed to set your adrenalin pumping! Meribel is an intermediates dream, with a vast choice of long runs. Beginners can gain confidence on the selection of gentle slopes. Meribel & Mottaret are a snowboarding wonderland!

The night life is buzzing in traditional Meribel and in the more modern Mottaret, with many bars playing live music. Local specialities and pizzas are served in the restaurants.

Which exciting non-ski activities will you choose? A helicopter flight to take in the panoramic view? Go-karting on ice? Keeping fit by swimming, working out in the gym or skating round the Olympic ice rink? A relaxing massage? A trip to Meribels ninety shops and market or a visit to the cinema to watch a film in English?
