Rent your ski equipment: If you are staying in Méribel during the school holidays, think about reserving in advance! The rental shops are very busy, and it could happen that they run out of the best equipment to suit you, if you arrive late…
all paid passes are available to reserve online, only the -5 years and 75+ years passes must be purchased in a lift pass office.
Ski schools and ski instructors: Whether it’s your first time on skis, you’re coming back to the sport after a break, or you simply want a guide to show you around the resort without having to constantly check that your route will take you to your favourite mountain restaurant… book your instructor through one of the ski schools prior to your arrival in resort!
Stay up to date with the snow forecast and the state of the roads. All information is available HERE
Please note that suitable equipment, eg. snow tyres or snow chains, are now compulsory to access the resort, as of 1st November 2021. (called the ‘Loi Montagne’ in French).
From -15°C to +10°C: around here, we ski, whatever the weather! In the mountains the weather can completely change in days or even in just a few hours, no matter what season it is. It can be mild in February and very cold in April, there are no rules! To avoid any surprises, we advise you to check the weather forecast for the week you are visiting which will help you when packing and not forget anything important! Check the forecast

Help yourself, free piste maps are available in all our sales offices as well as the tourist office.
The 3 Valleys app provides everything you need to know about the ski area, in real time, of course: lift and slope openings, the pistes that were groomed the night before, mountain restaurants, webcams, technical incidents, notifications of the 3 Valleys links closing due to high winds… It’s all there.
