Visitor Reviews of Méribel

Jason from United Kingdom writes:

Went to the A-list resort of Meribel last (2014) February. What a damp squib.
I think I was expecting a vibrant town, buzzing with The Crack and full of skiers/boarders with tales to tell of a great day out on the mountain. Not a bit of it. The Rond Point did its best to provide snowball fight inspired après fun 'til around 5 but, thereafter, it was everyone home for cake and a shower.
The Folie Douce is a poor impression of a rather dull Ibiza beach party, full of pretending-to-be-pissed mummy's boys and Towie wannabees.
In the village, the bars are poor indeed, except for the wine bar; run by a wonderful music-savvy local woman.
The riding was good in the 3 vallees, esp over in Couchevel first thing in the am. But I felt that the runs around Meribel and Mottaret were busy and a little "samey". Get away from the main linking pistes for the best snow. The outlying areas are usually the best.
Apres? Shmapres.
