WEsayAn attractive sprawling chalet resort, a great and central base for beginning to explore the magnificant trois vallees.
Built in traditional Savoyard style, the accommodation in this resort was designed to blend in with its surroundings and is one of the reasons that so many people have fallen in love with the place over the years. Another reason for the popularity of this resort is its location in Les Trois Vallées region, home to over 600 kilometres of downhill slopes and a further 120 kilometres of cross-country skiing runs. Visitors can access all these areas with a single pass, so running out of places to explore is not something that you need to worry about when staying here.
If you are just beginning your journey into the world of skiing, this is the ideal place in which to do so. Close to the resort are a number of excellent runs for inexperienced skiers that will help you to gain in confidence before tackling more challenging pistes. A cheap Méribel ski chalet is not hard to find but the deals that we have to offer are exceptional by anybody’s standards. Chaletline invites you to peruse the accommodation on our site, to get a better idea of just how much fun you can have on a limited budget these days.
A good base
Situated in the middle one of the three valleys from which the region takes it name, this resort is a good place to set up camp for those that want to explore the whole three valley area. As mentioned above, there are plenty of runs for beginners within easy reach of the resort. There are also many blue and red runs a little further away and on the western side of the valley can be found two snow parks where skiers and boarders alike are welcome. For those on a snowboard, there are plenty of places to explore on Ski Chalet Méribel skiing holidays.sdf
