Méribel ski resort and the village is the heart of the Les Trois Vallées, Europe’s largest interconnected ski resort. Because Méribel is located the very center of between Courchevel to the east, Les Menuires and Val Thorens to the south west, it’s an ideal ski resort to stay at to ski all three valleys. Besides, Méribel is a very classic ski village, with beautiful alpine chalets, gorgeous valley scenery surrounded by the French Alp peaks, and a very friendly atmosphere- lots of local boutiques, bars and pubs for après ski and plenty to do after the ski lifts stop.

Meribel is a charming village perfectly located in the centre of the 3 Valleys. Easy access to lifts like the Saulire and Tougnette which get you high up the mountain in no time. Good options for food as well as nightlife, and a really fun vibe... More
Superb!

Fantastic resort, as a novice skier who had only been skiing 6 days in total, it was fantastic, it has something for everyone. I would recommend the resort to anyone and am looking at going back in 2018.
Very Good!

Meribel has got a great terrain park with features for everyone, decent size and elevation, usually get a bunch of snow. I live in Annecy and it's not the closer but it's manageable for a day trip.
Superb!
