Skiing in Meribel Village
There is access to the slopes and The Three Valleys ski area via the Golf chair-lift that arrives into the Altiport area of Meribel, where the nursery slopes are that many ski instructors use for beginner lessons.
There is just one easy blue piste, ‘Lapin’, that goes back into Meribel Village.
Snow conditions in Meribel Village
Although Meribel Village is low in altitude at 1400m, the resort has the most extensive snow making capabilities and has tripled its capacity in recent years.
Après ski, restaurants and other activities in Meribel Village
The village has a number of luxury ski chalets and offers a tranquil ski holiday destination as there are only a few facilities in the area. The village has one bakery, a supermarket, hire shop, one bar and two restaurants so it isn’t the busiest of resorts. But during peak season, apres ski can be lively at its Lodge du Village bar.
It is also very easy to get to the popular Rond Point or ‘Ronnie’s’ via the Golf chairlift or go into Meribel centre via the regular resort busses from 8am to midnight which only takes 4 minutes.
For non skiers, walking is a great way to take in the mountain setting without hitting the sloped. You can take scenic walks in the resort, from the village to Altiport and also into Meribel Mottaret. Buy a pedestrian lift pass so you can access the lifts on your walk too.
