• Meribel Ski Holiday 2020/21 ? Don’t worry you have chosen one of the very best ski resorts in the French Alps. We may have some restrictions next season due to Corona Virus. But with fast open chairs covering most of the mountains, we are one of the safest resorts. There might be restrictions on how many people can travel on the chairlifts together. The same goes for the gondolas. There may be some extra queues but that means the pistes are more quiet like the old days of skiing.  So not all bad !!

  • Meribel Unplugged should have everything you need to know for your ski or snowboard holiday.

  • In my opinion in Meribel you have the very best of what the French Alps can offer. The Tarentaise / Savoie region has a wide choice of ski resorts but I honestly think Meribel is the best of them all taking all aspects into consideration.
    Great skiing for intermediates &  advanced with plenty of red and black runs. Plus superb off-piste possibilities. The green pistes at the Meribel altiport area is a perfect place for beginners. Check out my ski guide pages for more information on skiing.
    Meribel apres ski spots include the famous Folie Douce and Rond Point, both on the Saulire mountainside.
    The LDV has it’s big terrace marquee at Meribel Village. Here the apre ski bands play outside. Very important nowadays.
    Jacks Bar at Chaudanne lift centre  has live bands every afternoon Monday to Friday and music some weekends.
    Being in the very heart of the Trois Vallees it is also very easy to ski to Courchevel, La Tania, St Martin ,Les Menuires, Val Thorens or even the 4th Orelle valley.

Apartments Lounge

Holidays Tips:
Ski holidays in Meribel can sometimes work out pretty expensive. If you are on a tight budget then maybe go for self catering. Rest assured. We have an enormous choice of ski accommodation at all prices. It starts with small budget self catering studios for 2/4 persons and extends all the way up to 4 bedrooms or 5 bedrooms large luxury 5 star chalet style apartments. Many  of our Meribel apartments are located in prime spots in and around the town centre . Others are in outlying villages and usually a little cheaper. With the excellent free bus service you don’t have to worry too much about location. All the buses go to the main ski lift centre at Chaudanne. Do feel free to ask our advice or again check out the Meribel acommodation guide.
