Meribel in the French Alps is a chic, accessible ski in, ski out destination in the heart of the famed Trois Valles. Located just a short drive from Geneva International Airport, Meribel offers the largest lift network in the world. If the name Meribel evokes images of amazing Olympic ski champions, it is because the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics were hosted here. Vacationers enjoy the quintessential Alpine skiing experience, with soaring snowy mountains under crystal clear, sunny skies. Meribel is highlighted by charming chalet style architecture and provides raised walkways alongside the boutiques and shops in the center of town. Participate in a host of activities from cross country skiing and snowboarding in winter to white water rafting and cycling in summer. If you are adventurous, hike the glaciers that dot the area, zip through forest paths pulled by a team of huskies and take an airborne tour in a specially equipped small aircraft. A rejuvenating massage at a local spa will feel good after an active day. Meribel offers many fine restaurants with amazing mountain views and a lively après ski bar scene.

The varied terrain at Meribel is ideal for skiers from beginners to expert. The Meribel Valley provides almost a hundred miles of trails, and skiers will have easy access to many more around the Trois Valle area. Meribel is served by an up-to-date lift system of chairs and gondolas. For beginners, there is a sheltered, tree-lined green run at Altiport which is long and wide for practicing turns. Intermediate skiers can head up to Tougnete or Mont de la Challe for morning sun, and advanced skiers will love the excitement of off-piste Mt. Vallon face above Meribel-Mottaret, and the legendary Les Bosses black. Cross country skiing around Tueda Lake and Altiport Forest is exceptional, and snowboarders will find several snowboard parks in Meribel and lift links to other parks in nearby valleys. If you are interested in skiing these neighboring valleys, consider the six-day Three Valleys lift pass, which is around the same price as the six-day Meribel pass.
