Been coming to 3v a long time, and am usially in Meribel Valley a lot for skiing. I don't stay there as i"m in Belleville Valley accomm. But always had a 3v pass as i do this year. I used to love the snowparks in Meribel Valley. Back in the day it used to have 2 great high standard parks, with Moon Park and the one that became Area 43 above Mottaret. This is what you should be able to find in a world class resort. Unfortunately, it seems Meribel have decided to give up on catering for this market in a meaningful way. Moon Park became nothing more than rollers a while ago, and this year Area 43 has gone, and all that's left is a line of small kickers. The XL line that used to have 3 consistently well shaped huge jumps and sometimes some other large feature depending on volumes of snow, is gone. It has been replaced by some amateur-hour shaping of a maybe 10m kicker. It really is poor, the take offs are not in tune with the gradients of the landings so impact on landing is way heavier than it needs to be, even for a relatively small air like this one. You got less thump from the airtimes that were 3 or 4 times the size before. It really is a let down if you like park skiing. My suggestion would be go somewhere else if this is what you like doing. Val T is still generally worth a look in this dept, but Austria really seems to be the place for this now. Sad, because France really used to excel for the freeski crew.
