Ski area Méribel

Ski area Méribel

The ski area "Vallée de Méribel" offer 150 km of Olympic pistes (1992 Albertville) and 46 lifts. The 2012 upgraded cabin lift "Saulire Express" takes you up to the peak at 2,738 m in only 12 min. (previously 22 min.). The centrally located connection lift "Les Plattières" in the 3 Valleys even saves more time for you: within only 9, instead of 22 min., the comfortable 10-person gondola takes you to the mountain station. From there you can either ski back to Méribel or down to Les Menuires.

Being one of the highest regions in the Alps, the ski region promises fantastic snow conditions and surety. Even at the beginning of May skiing and boarding is seldom a problem. The 1 km long run "Les Bosses" in Méribel is known to be one of the most challenging in the entire region and requires a fair amount of courage. Well exercised skiers will find a challenge and also the possibility to test their stamina.

For pros on skis and snowboards, we recommend the lift pass upgrade to the "Les 3 Vallées" (see ski region). More than 600 km of prepared pistes and 166 lifts are available here and offer pure fun in the snow.

Night skiing Méribel

Skiing by night is an experience every skier or snowboarder should try at least once in their lifetime. In France there are numerous night ski areas or parts of the piste with extended opening hours. In the largest ski area of the world, the 3 Vallées, night owls can also turn night into day. Every Wednesday, the ski area Courchevel extends the 8-person gondola's opening hours into the evening so that the guests can go night skiing. The piste "Verdons" as well as the family park are illuminated by floodlight, and in family park, night skiing is even accompanied by music. The restaurant "Verdons" extends its opening hours according to the lifts' operation time and serves food and drink until late in the evening.

Après ski Méribel

Even after a lively day on the piste you still can experience a lot in Méribel. Whilst lovely boutiques invite to stroll and look, cafés and restaurants offer a great choice of apres ski in the evening. This can be continued either in the cinema or also on the bowling alley. Night owls can then continue on to the bars and discos, where you can keep going until way into the night. Especially recommendable is the bar "Le Poste de Secours", which impresses with it's modern design and varied offers. Those who feel that this all is still not enough can look forward to a trip Val Thorens, where you can dance the night away until the early morning hours.

Of course in Méribel you can also continue off-piste sports, such as paragliding, ice climbing or dog sledding. In Méribel you can also go snowshoeing, ice skating, bowling, snowmobiling and much more.

Snowpark: DC Area 43 Snowpark Méribel

With your lift pass you also have access to Méribel's snow parks. In the "Elements Park", shaped by Ho5Park, there are over various lines for freestylers of all levels. Beginners will especially enjoy trying out their tricks on the various obstacles, including boxes, rails and jibs, as well as a boardercross run.

Located directly at the "Plattiere 2" lift there is a special highlight of the region: DC Shoes decided to created an entire snow park in Méribel. They were supported by the shaper team of Hill Technics, which includes the European X-Games shaper Benjamin Ravanel. The whole park was designed and shaped in accordance to the highest technical standards. At an altitude of 2,300 m and covering a length of 1,200 m, the park offers 40 rails and 45 kickers in all different levels of difficulties (green, blue, red and black). Further there is a special jib zone with many creative obstacles, a "BagJump" air bag, a boardercross track, as well as two half-pipes, which are only suited for experts. With The "DC Live Park" function you can have your tricks filmed so you can analyse them later on. In the chill zone you can wind down while enjoying some good music.
