AWE INSPIRING VIEWS OVER THE LARGEST GLACIER OF THE 3 VALLEYS
A high mountain landscape, an altitude of nearly 3000 m: lose yourself before the splendour of this sublime glacial panorama. Yes, laid out before your eyes is indeed the largest glacier of the 3 Valleys, the Gebroulaz, studied by specialists and cherished by locals. And this winter, take in the now completely uninterrupted view as you exit the new gondola lift ....an even greater WOW effect... quite simply breath-taking!
Moreover, this great spectacle is not only reserved to good skiers, as you can always go down in the cabin and wait for the rest of your group at the restaurant, whilst enjoying a luxurious hot chocolate….Can’t wait for those holidays in Méribel!
NEW LOOK & MORE COMFORT
An iconic symbol of the Méribel Valley since 1987, the Mont Vallon gondolas have had a make-over!
In comfortable 8 seat cabins that offer panoramic views over the entire ski area you will now travel to the top of the Meribel Valley in first class style.
At the top is a dramatic glacial environment that opens up before your eyes, and two famous red pistes to delight and challenge good skiers: long, steep, demanding... T
his is technical skiing at its best, inspiring and simply magnificent!
Explore the green «Ours» piste and discover the secrets of the nature reserve in a fun way!
With wooden sculptures of the local fauna, delights for all 5 senses, how about a picnic in the middle of the largest cembro pine forest in the Alps? The secrets of the local species are revealed to you in the magical and protected environment of the Tuéda Nature Reserve of the National Park.
Look out for wild hares, golden eagles and ancient cembro pines, this gentle ski is refreshing and soothing: a real return to nature, just what you and your children need during your ski holidays!
EVEN MORE OPEN SPACE
Looking for more adventure during your ski trip?
A whole freeride playground at your feet…offering a virgin environment, consistently good snow due to a northern exposure and arguably two of the best pistes of the Valley which ironically are amongst those the least known by the general public. The Mont de la Challe sector is reached via the new (last year) Roc de
Tougne chairlift. This natural area is ideal for good skiers who want to carve on beautiful red and black runs or enjoy the sensations of freeride on slopes with a relatively gentle gradient!
THE TRAPPER'S CABIN
A picnic spot with luxurious rusticity !
At the top of the Roc de Tougne chairlift, facing Mont Blanc and the Saulire, a small wooden hut is the ideal place to take a break: tables, chairs and splendid panoramas of the surrounding peaks, total immersion.
Of course in Méribel our trappers can enjoy the mountains with modernity - glove warmers and chargers for your smartphone!
A 4 STARS SOUVENIR
There’s an art to taking a selfie on the chairlift: removing your gloves at -15°C, taking your new smartphone out of your pocket and risking it falling into the snow below, never to be found again…
If there’s a trickier place to take a photo, we’re yet to find it! Take away the stress and head over to the Combes chairlift in Meribel-Mottaret: lift up your goggles, strike a pose, give a great big smile, and CLICK – the photo will be taken automatically, all you need to do is head over to the big screen at the top to collect it! Keep your smartphone or camera safely in your pocket and take home your chairlift selfie this winter.
THE YETI PARK - THE FAVORITE KID'S SLOPE
Meribel’s Yeti Park is growing yet again, with a new dimension on offer : an easy and fun boardercross! The latest addition to the itinerary will still be accessible to beginners and families, as the whole park.
After you’ve enjoyed a run through the whoops and tight curve, why not pop into the Yeti Shop on the snow front in Mottaret and take away a souvenir beanie or soft toy to remind your children of your encounters with Yooni, the friendly yeti?
Try an illuminating new experience on the pistes of Meribel: descend from the iconic summits at night as part of a torchlit descent!
After a warm-up drink at the top of the mountain, grab your skis and your torch (‘flambeau’) and ski together all the way down into resort. A magical atmosphere in the torchlit mountains makes for great photos and long-lasting memories – a ‘must-do’ to make your holiday really special!
The 4 dates are:
Torchlit descent from Saulire: 3rd January and 28th February
Torchlit descent from Roc de Tougne: 21st February and 7th March
Price: 35€ per person. Suitable for strong skiers only.
YOUR SKI IS GUARANTEED IN MERIBEL!
To ensure that the 3 Valley links are viable from the beginning to the end of the season and good quality snow over the whole of the Méribel Valley, the main altitude reservoir in Mottaret, used to produce artificial snow, has been extended, thereby doubling the snowmaking capacity!
No need to find non skiing activities to occupy days during your stay in Méribel since your skiing is GUARANTEED!
Not convinced? The “ski guarantee” from the 3 Valleys is a guarantee of the largest number of open linked runs in Europe throughout the season…. So go for it!
