Méribel ideal for top skiing and family holidays

The Méribel ski area was created before the Second World War by the Scotsman Peter Lindsay who was looking for an alternative to German and Austrian resorts.  In 1936, he first visited the village of Les Allues and in 1938, the first ski lift saw the light of day. Some 75 years later, the ski area retains a strong British presence and influence and occupies the central valley of the Trois Vallées network, the largest ski area in the world. The ski area is composed of 5 ski resorts – Méribel les Allues, Méribel Village, Méribel, Méribel Mottaret and Brides-les-Bains. The ski area  culminates at 9685 feet, with a 4590 foot vertical and the largest lift network not only in France but in the world. Skiers are transported rapidly and efficiently by chairs and gondolas to the runs they choose.

Experts are offered lots of choices: steep runs from Tougnète back to Méribel or the moguls on Combe Vallon or beautiful off-piste runs that lead back to the gondola. Intermediate skiers will think they’ve died and gone to heaven as nearly every slope in Méribel has an intermediate run and beginners can take their first runs on a wide, gentle beginner slope. The resort also boasts two big terrain parks, the Moonpark which covers 25 acres and the DC Area 43 park.

Families will particularly appreciate a ski holiday in Méribel thanks to the diversity of runs and fun family areas in the terrain parks: the Acticross with whoops, a tunnel, banked turns and slaloms and the Moon Wild nature trail through the woods.
