Spotlight on Meribel and The 3 Valleys
Meribel is just one of the resorts of the largest linked ski area in the world: the Trois Vallées, with 600 kilometres of prepared and maintained pistes & miles of easily accessible off piste skiing. The slopes of les 3 Vallées can be found between an altitude of 1300 metres and 3230 metres. 85% of the ski area is located above 1800 metres. The high altitude of the whole ski area combined with its topography guarantee good snow cover throughout the winter. In fact, whilst many other ski areas are linked by low valley runs which are subject to uncertain levels of snow cover, the 3 Vallées resorts are linked by mountain ridges at an altitude of more than 2000 metres.
One of the many highlights of skiing in Meribel & around the 3 valleys, are the links & terrain. You can go from easy green & blue slopes through to blacks, off piste & couloirs transported by one of the fastest & newest lift systems in the world.
With a perfect range of levels within our Meribel program, we can accommodate all levels from level 3’s to level 7’s. We have All-Terrain, Off-piste, Backcountry & Backcountry Access courses for level 4+ skiers & beyond.
This year we are excited to have twinned up with British tour operator ‘Ski Blanc’ in Meribel Les Allues for a special week on Janaury 21st. We’ve contracted in our own Snoworks chalet for this week at £549 for the week. Flights and transfers can be booked extra.
Tristan Benwell, Lee Townend and Dave Norman are our resident Snoworks coaches and guarantee to make your skiing in the Three Valleys amongst your best experiences ever. All three coaches have fantastic knowledge of the area having lived and worked there for many years.
The Three Valleys can sometimes get an unfair reputation of being expensive, however this is often unfounded. having skied all over Europe we can assure you this is not the case. With our new accommodation options & the local knowledge of Snoworks coaches it is no more expensive than any of the other big well know ski areas in Europe & with cheaper lift passes than many. The Three Valleys is right up there as the greatest ski area on the planet. Should you go – absolutely.
