The Col de la Loze, the place to be. The promise of this plateau summit: soothing views, paragliding flights, panoramic views of the 2 valleys of Courchevel and Méribel and the villages in front of you. The best time to get there? Late afternoon, as the sun slowly begins to set behind the peaks of the Vallée des Belleville... And imagine it as the finish line of the Tour de France, by bike! Yes, this pass hosted a Tour de France finish in the summer of 2020, one of the most complex stages according to the riders.
In short, the best place to enjoy a 5-star sunset before heading back to the warmth and letting the groomers work the slopes for another day of skiing on freshly groomed snow!
Quite simply, the must-see summit if you ski in Méribel! In front of you, the Grande Casse, Savoie's highest peak (3855m), the Vanoise glaciers and all the rest. The little extra? When a sea of clouds invades the landscape, leaving only the summit of La Vizelle, the gondola in front of you, to emerge from the clouds... It's a breathtaking sight that will remain engraved in your memory for a long time to come, we promise!
Access via the Pas du Lac gondola from Méribel-Mottaret or the Saulire Express from Méribel Chaudanne.
Stop everything! At the summit of Roc de Fer, the feeling of being away from it all dominates. The view is sublime, with the Vallée des Encombres right in front of you. One ridge follows another, all the way to the Southern Alps, which you can see on a clear day.
This is one of the best spots in the ski area for a picnic on a rock. Afterwards, the crows will feast on your leftovers and offer you a poetic and musical ball. In short, a wild moment not to be missed.
Access by Olympic chairlift.
At the arrival point of the famous Cime Carron cable car, an esplanade awaits you where you can enjoy a bird's eye view of the Maurienne or the Vallée des Bellevilles, with the resort of Val Thorens below.
And just in front of you, these 3 peaks, which stand out from the other summits because of their original shape, are the Aiguilles d'Arves.
