The Winter in Meribel: The Méribel valley is one of the largest of the French Alps extending from Brides–les-Bains at 600m to Péclet-Polset at 3,560m. The town has 57 ski lifts in its immediate vicinity to serve 74 groomed ski runs that total 150 kilometres. One popular run is the Olympic women’s downhill run and as the epicentre of the world’s largest ski domain, there are endless stretches of off-piste. Queuing is a rarity thanks to a new electronic lift pass system unveiled in the 06/07 season, two 50 person cable cars, over 40 gondolas and 25 high speed chair lifts.
The Méribel valley, including the purpose-built Mottaret area, suits skiers of all levels. Beginners can cruise down the wide gentle slopes of the Altiport, a tree-lined area ideal for those experiencing snow for the first time. For Intermediates, the range of runs is almost limitless with 89 blue and 116 red runs. For the truly Advanced skier every day here is filled with challenges and adventures.
The Summer in Meribel: Many of Alpine Infusion’s guests return to our chalets during the summer months of July and August to be greeted by a totally different kind of playground. Laden with flowers, trees and dramatic landscapes the valley provides the perfect environment for hiking, mountain-biking, golf, climbing, parapenting, white water rafting, canyoning, horse riding, tennis and much more.
The Vanoise National Park, France’s first National Park, is a boundary-less paradise of 140,000 acres, founded in 1963 to protect animal life and wild flora. Hiking levels reach to 3,855m and include 500km of maintained and marked trails which are not difficult and are accessible to any good hiker with suitable mountain gear.
Méribel has many lovely restaurants, from relaxed crêperies to more gastronomic finds that cater for families and groups of friends. Many have flower-covered terraces where one can enjoy the sunshine at lunchtime or for aperitifs in the evening.
