Why visit Meribel?
Meribel is situated in Les Trois Vallees, perfectly located in the middle of this world renowned ski area which means that you have 600 kilometres of skiing at your fingertips. This fact coupled with the
traditional mountain charm and the fun atmosphere in resort makes Meribel a firm favourite among WhiteRoad clients. Expect picturesque wooden chalets, lush forests and plenty of French Alpine tradition.
For those who want to explore the entire Trois Vallees area, why not try the legendary 76 kilometres route which circumnavigates the entire area. This is the perfect way to spend a day, while on route why not grab a bite to eat at Cookies Club, which is located at 1,650m serving salads, burgers and paninis on a south facing terrace.
Reach the highest point in Meribel, The Mont Vallon, reaching 2,952 kilometres for a panoramic view of the Gebrolaz glacier and Grand Casse. 1,000m of descent through a setting so raw, you will have a true feeling of getting back to nature.
As with most of the destinations WhiteRoad offer, we try to combine the best snow, location and après. Therefore it should come as no surprise that our favourite venue in the Alps, Le Folie Douce also has a bar in Meribel. Catch the Saulire Express gondola lift for breath-taking views and table top dancing!
Meribel also has it’s own Michelin starred restaurant, L’Ekrin where chef Laurent Azoulay offers culinary delights to keep any visiting foodies happy.
