Meribel Centre is the biggest town in the Meribel valley; a lively atmosphere and geographical heart of The Three Valleys makes it a world-famous ski resort.
The Meribel town stretches from 1400 metres up to 1750 metres, plus a ski area touching nearly 3000 metres.
Its busy town crams everything you can think of into a ski resort, from slopeside live apres to a private altiport.
Chalets wind up into the hills among the pine trees with something for all styles and budgets. Take a quaint toasty ski lodge with valley views or ski-in/ski-out full-service luxury.
Bars of all shapes and sizes line the streets of town while higher up on the slopes energetic apres-ski venues dapple in the sun late into the afternoon. Check out the world-famous Folie Douce or Rond Point for a true apres-ski experience before heading into town for the evening.
Ski shops near slopes keep you kitted out in the latest gear and expert ski boot fitters will instantly boost your abilities. Ski rental shops offer high-quality equipment at all levels of the resort or even order a ski rental delivery direct to your ski chalet.
Restaurants and cafes keep you covered at all hours too. Grab a freshly baked croissant and coffee to get your engine started on a fresh morning. Lunch stops with easy-going food (burgers, nachos, pizza) fuel you for the afternoon expedition. Then indulge in traditional Savoyard cuisine into the evening, we’re talking fondue and raclette with a side of melted cheese.
The Ski Area
Meribel Centre quite literally sits at the heart of The Three Valleys. The Meribel ski area revolves around the Chaudanne which links to lower down resorts of Les Allues and Brides-les-Bains plus Courchevel and Mottaret.
The Meribel ski area is huge on its own with over 150kms of piste rising up to 2952 metres at the top of Mont Vallon. Beginners practice on the gentle wide-open altiport slopes while competent skiers explore far and wide.
Hop over to Courchevel for impeccably groomed crisp slopes entwined with glamour. The next day finds you in the high-altitude big mountains of Val Thorens. Or simply enjoy the sunny Meribel slopes including a choice of freestyle terrain parks, winding blue and runs, and knee burning top to bottom 1300 metre descents.
Meribel Centre is a French Alps super resort packing everything you want into one perfectly located ski resort.
