Mottaret Ski Resort Guide
- Acres of ski:1337
- Terrain Parks:1
- X-Country:33 km
Mottaret lies at the heart of the 3 valleys just a couple of km from Meribel. The skiing in the 3 valleys is superb with the largest linked ski area in the world. There is no excuse for becoming bored. Epic journeys can be made to see how far away you can get in one day; just remember you have to get back too! The village of Mottaret itself is modern but attractive with wooden clad chalets providing ample accommodation. There are plenty of places to eat at Mottaret but some are a bit pricey. Nightlife is lively and you can easily head into Meribel for even more choice.

Have just returned from Mottaret. We were there for Feb 1/2 term term and had the most fantastic time. The snow conditions were the best we have ever had. The piste was not crowded and there were no really long lift queues. Prices for food and drink seem to have stayed the same for the past 2-3 years. Ok, more expensive than you would like but they do have to get everything up the mountain.
We made the most of the new group lift pass which is available for groups of 3 or more.
We booked all our travel and accommodation independently which worked out so much cheaper We stayed in the Ruitor appartments right in the centre of Mottaret with the shops bars and lifts just outside the door. The apartment was fantastic. Not the small cramped type we stayed in last year. It slept 6 and we all had decent beds.There was separate bathroom and toilet as well as kitchen and lounge/diner. The huge balcony was south facing looking onto the slopes. Will be going back there next year.
Travel was on the overnight sleeper train from Paris and at 600euros return for 6 of us was a bargain. Transfers was by Altibus which can be booked online.The bonus of the night train is you get 8 full days ski.
For those that want lively apres-ski there is the free bus to Meribel.
I loved Mottaret and am looking forward to returning there next year.
