One of the most popular and famous run in Meribel is the Combe Vallon which can be found on the 2952 meter high Mont Vallon. The off-piste in Meribel is second to none with vast amounts easily accessible from the lifts. The interconnected resorts share 600 km of terrain and 167 lifts which makes the 3 Vallées the largest ski area in the World.

Visitor Reviews of Méribel
John from France writes:
Meribel is a great base to get the best out of the 3Valleys. It’s central location makes it easy to link to other valleys but in Meribel itself long runs of all levels can be found on Tougnette, where Choucas is a great blue and the new Roc de Tougne chairlift makes access to Bartavelle: a fantastic black with accessible easy off-piste. Top of the valley has north facing runs under Cote Brun which are great to explore and Mont Vallon has awesome terrain.
Après-ski revolves around loads of venues with live bands playing. I agree, Folie Douce is a wanabee Ibiza club. But, if that’s your thing, Rond Point can be great fun though and LDV and Meribar are wild on the 'bring your sisters' nights!
Food can be Savoyard or Indian or Sushi or Italian; you have loads to choose from..
If you tire of Meribel maybe find another hobby...
