Meribel still is the best choice for a youngish family, with its incredibly friendly vibe, fantastic range of piste and off piste skiing, 100's of KM of pisted runs and 100% 'snow sure' conditions. The resort has enough to offer the skier plenty of non skiing things to do without being too big so that you feel lost. The place is so friendly and we have met and re met friends there over the years. Some of the bars and restaurants welcome us back every year with open arms.

Meribel is a great resort and we wouldn't ski anywhere else

Meribel is right in the middle of the largest ski area in the world: The Trois Vallees. It isn't down market, but not too expensive like neighbouring Courchevel. The apres ski and entertainment (Jacks Bar, Rond Point, Altitude Festival) is superb. Lot's of brits here. Chalets are more fun than large tour operators, Meribel has the greatest choice.

Just been to Meribel. First 2 days of skiing on Friday and Saturday before the hoards arrived were really good but then, besides the 9-10am slot and then the 12h30-2pm lunch slot, the crowds took over on our last 2 days. Couple of really good runs like Combe Vallon and The Face if you got their early in the morning. No serious off piste to speak of due to lack of fresh snowfalls and us being beaten to the punch earlier in the week. The really ridiculous thing though was the cost of things i.e. eating out or drinking. EURO 6.20-6.50 for a beer was the standard at the average pubs and EURO15 for a run of the mill burger was ridiculous, even at the previous 1.50 to 1 exchange rate. All in all I

We are just back from Meribel Mottaret where we stayed at the Mont Vallon with our teenage+ son and daughter. I can't fault the hotel although it is very expensive - the staff were fantastic and the food delicious. The pool sauna and steam were nice and seemed to be well used. Our rooms faced the slopes (ski in and ski out.) but we met a couple whose room faced the road and said it had been very noisy. We are inexperienced skiers but had a fantastic time on the large number of blues and some of the reds. We had Monday to Friday ski lessons with Parallel Lines and the instructor Ed was really excellent. The 11.30 to 1.30 time slot meant the slopes were quiet but it limited where we could expl

Have just returned from Meribel & thought I would warn you all this is not the place to go if you are on a budget (unless your budget is that of a Russian oligarch.) The pistes are amazing though & should be enough to take your mind off the price of a pint. I particularly enjoyed the Bartavelle black piste at the top of the Roc de Tougne drag lift & Combe Vallon is an amazing descent at the right time of day. This resort is the best for exploring the Trois Vallees & with good weather a 3 valley tour is well within the capabilities of an average intermediate. I booked a ski clinic with new generation & found it to be excellent. The tuition given by my instructor, Agnes, wa
