The skiing in Meribel is fantastic and is a haven for beginner and intermediate skiers with all runs leading back to the main lifts and centre of resort. The pistes are generally wide, gentle and very well groomed and the upper slopes are perfect for intermediate and advanced skiers to stretch their legs. Both Meribel and Mottaret offer a never ending choice of easily accessible off piste slopes that cater for advanced and budding intermediate skiers.
Snowboarding has become extremely fashionable in the resorts and is almost matching the number of skiers on the slopes. Every level of boarder is catered for with gentle cruising runs for the beginners to the great snowboard park located on the upper slopes of Mottaret. The off piste offers endless opportunities, even for the daring intermediate!
There is a great choice of ski schools available in Meribel and Mottaret and all offer a professional service with an array of different prices. The ESF (Ecole Du Ski Francais) offers some great priced lessons but places are limited and booking is essential. It is recommended that you book your lessons well in advance of departure especially in the peak holiday period.
