It is a relatively new ski resort compared to the more famous counterparts, such as the Courchevel and the Val Thorens. But Meribel’s new ski resort provides a different and perhaps more memorable experience for skiers. In fact, it is best to enjoy Meribel’s new ski resort for at least a week. In this way, skiers can enjoy a ski party.
What makes Meribel different from the others? There are hundreds of ways but the most obvious is the village landscape. Other ski-resorts have buildings and facilities that are crowded together in one small area. On the other hand, the new ski resort in Meribel has tastefully designed facilities and the accommodations blended into the village setting. Instead of boring rectangular structures, the new ski resort has chalet-style accommodations, complete with porches and wood sidings. Besides the adorable accommodations, the walkways are raised for the convenience of everyone. This makes the new ski resort of Meribel the most stylish ski resorts in the Trois Vallèes.
Another reason why the new ski resort in Meribel is unique is the opportunity for a wide variety of gastronomical experiences. There are pubs for those who like the old fashioned way and there are pubs for those who love the new-age trend. There are restaurants that offer the French favorites and there are restaurants that serve international cuisines. Most visitors who enjoy the night après ski would recommend the Dicks T bar and nightclub.
And the primary reason why skiers can enjoy the new ski resort in Meribel for a week or more is the opening of the slopes in the top valley and in Mont Vallon. Today, there are more than 372 miles of ski runs plus numerous off-pistes. For intermediate skiers who love cruising for miles and miles, the ski runs of Meribel’s new ski resort present the perfect opportunity to further develop their techniques. There are also numerous ski runs for experts and more for beginners. In fact, the new ski resort in Meribel has 9 black runs, 21 red runs, 33 blue runs, and 11 green runs. There are also 2 Olympic runs, one slalom stadium, and 2 snowboarding areas. The best part is that the ski slopes in this new ski resort are well maintained with plenty of snow.
Meribel is also located right at the center of the most extensive network of slopes. This is one of the reasons why this new ski resort is more expensive than most. But you get what you pay for. Cheaper accommodations may mean less comfort and fewer amenities. This is acceptable only for a short duration or for skiers who are used to roughing it. But for a week-long relaxing and fun winter holiday, it is always best to have comfortable if not luxurious accommodations.
The ski runs are supported by 200 modern lifts. This huge number considerably reduces the waiting line and the skiers can spend more time skiing rather than standing in line. The only caveat for skiers is that the new ski resort in Meribel will not give much French ambiance. Most visitors are English-speaking and English is heard more often than French. Nevertheless, the whole week or more of winter holiday can be spent on things more exciting than learning to pronounce sil vous plait. The new ski resort in Meribel also has facilities for swimming, skating, rock climbing, paragliding, snow biking, and more.
