♦ This Meribel Piste Map is by courtesy of the Meribel Lift Company. If you want an extra guide to skiing the 3 valleys then be sure to download and print my 7-Day ski guide for Meribel and the 3 valleys.
♦ Having been here 25 + seasons I have managed to give some good tips for keen skiers. The best runs first thing in the morning and how to avoid lift queues where possible.
♦ The guide is on piste only. I prefer off piste but am not allowed to encourage you. Anyway it is always best with a guide or instructor.
♦ Meribel has over 600 km of skiing on piste so for a one-week holiday you have an incredible choice. Too much in fact. So my little guide will help you find the best on piste routes around the 3 Valleys.
♦ I don’t ski fast but always catch the first 9am lifts to avoid the crowds for an hour or two. Can be wonderful up there on the mountaintop at 9.20am. I always try for lunch at either 12.00 or 14.00. This means that you often will ski on empty pistes between 12.30pm and 2pm when the world and his uncle are queuing up for or eating in busy mountain restaurants for lunch.
♦ So download this piste map, or better still ask the tourist office to send you a hard copy. Then read my guide in association with it. It will then make more sense.
I wish you a great ski trip.
