This picturesque spa town at the base of the Three Valleys has a high speed gondola link to Meribel and represents excellent value. There is an excellent range of amenities, restaurants and shops. There is also a fabulous Health Spa offering a range of relaxing treatments.
First time skiers are well served by many gentle slopes and relaxing runs through the pine trees, including those by the Altiport and Rond Point des Pistes.
Intermediate skiers will rejoice in the vast amount of long red runs, ideal for improving your skiing. The Pic Noir runs from the Col de la Loze, descending through the trees or try the excellent 5km red run down the Combe du Vallon.
Expert skiers will relish the off-piste challenges, powder snow, glacier skiing and steep descents through the trees. Mogul bashers should try the famous 'Les Bosses' black run, while off-piste enthusiasts can enjoy the Mt. Vallon face above Mottaret. Add to this the fast Women's Olympic Downhill run on La Face, and Meribel really has something for everyone.
Check out the board parks in Meribel and Mottaret, with 3 half pipes and a boarder cross or experience the wide open runs and great Three Valleys off-piste.
