Having been skiing in Meribel for numerous years and other French and Austrian resorts I always find myself coming back to this little gem.
It has everything you need and the links to the other 3 valleys, not forgetting Orelle, are fantastic.
It's great for beginners and intermediates and has something for the advanced.
As per Neils review for Jan 2012, it is expensive compared to back home but you are as Oggi said in Feb 2012 on holiday.
After 9 years in Meribel you should have by now found the best and cheap places to eat.
The only way we do it now is to have a catered chalet which gives you a balanced diet and then for you to eat what you need for lunch. If you think it's expensive why not try a deli, there's plenty of good ones about i.e. the one at the LHS of the ski lodge pub in La Tania, or the snack bars at the base of Courcheval 1650.
In Mottaret near the centre are cheap eateries/takeaways.
Close to Moutiere chair lift in Val Thorens is a cheap self service restaurant
In Meribel La Taverne does a Burger and chips with a beer for 10 euro's.
Jack's do good priced pitchers and if you ask kindly supply you with free nibbles, plus they do pizzas from 8 euro's with the favourite being Sausage lover.
Scotts do cheap drinks too as does Le Pub.
So there you go, loads to eat and drink I just don't know what effect Folie Douce will have once it's built.
All I have to say is Rip It!!!
