♦ Meribel is very family friendly with lots of facilities for kids. Most young children should really be in ski school. There are many reasons for this. For children skiing in Meribel it helps to build their character to mix with others of similar age and ability. It can also save family arguments!
♦ Make sure you book yourski school before arriving as during school holidays they all get fully booked. It really is a little short-sighted to wait till the last minute.
♦ Ski schools take children normally from 4 years old. Before this age you would need to put them in the ESF kids nursery (18 months to 3 years) or the kindergarden (3 years to 5 years). Children have loads of fun in both and also get used to skis in a highly protected area. All day with lunch included can be arranged.
♦ For free time skiing with your kids then the altiport area takes some beating. There are protected areas there for children and beginners. Plus loads of new fun additions to make their skiing more enjoyable.
♦ Remember to buy yourfamily ski pass ticket if you have 2 children. This saves good money for a family of 4 or more.
