Ski Resort Review
Meribel is located in the heart of the The massive Three Vallies ski resort, with Val Thorens on the west and Courchevel to the east.
There has four separate villages all located at different altitude levels. MeribelMottaret located at 1,800 meters is a purpose built family orientated ski in ski out village with accommodation in apartments and chalets. The main town centre is located at 1,600 meters has the bulk of the accommodation, shops, restaurants and nightlife.
The smaller MeribelVillage located at 1,400 meters is an older quieter village with chalet accommodation. The peaceful village of Les Allues located at 1,100 meters was the original Meribelvillage which now has a gondola linking it to Meribel Mottaret.
A covered escalator connects the town centre with the ski base area, it can transport 9,000 passengers an hour.
Meribel is extremely popular with British skiers, who make up nearly half of the resorts visitors, many of the seasonal workers and permanent residents.
