MERIBEL BLOGS 2018 / 19
Whats new for 2018/19.
Another drag lift bites the dust! Cherferie has been replaced by a new high speed 6 seater chairlift. This means Choucas will now be far less quiet than before. Sad as it was a great run for beginners in the mornings with few people on it.
Plan de L’Homme and Roc de Fer chairlifts have been replaced by Legends, a new fast 6 man chairlift with pull down covers and temperature controlled seats !! This will give very fast access to St Martin De Belleville on or off piste.
More events are planned for children during the school holidays mainly in the altiport area. The Inuit and Elements Park fun zones are being expanded too.
Meribel’s toboggan run will be open 7 days a week next season. It has nearly 300 bends ! and a vertical drop of nearly 500m. Price for 2018/19 will be 12 euros for a single descent.
Meribel opened on 8th December . Lift pass prices have increased slightly on last season. Our Moles can get your lift passes for you if required to save hassle. Just e mail for details.

THE NEW 2016/17 SEASON BEGAN 10th DECEMBER.
♦ Many ski resorts were closed but Meribel managed to have all links open to the 3 Valleys. The guys did wonders with the snow from the cannons. Until New Year it was quite ok on pistes that were open , if a bit limited and icy later in the day. New year being crowded was not so good but at least Meribel did have snow.
♦ Meribel had a poor start after the early snows in November. Sadly it got warm and all the lower snow melted. The pistes were actually not too bad till the busy New Year week, due to the 100’s of snow cannons in the 3 Valleys.
2015/16 SEASON BLOG
So for the seasonal history.
A slow start but xmas visitors did have snow.
January saw the best month of the season for powder and good weather.
February had good snow all the month with some mixed weather & some heavy snowfalls.
The top half of the mountain had up to 2 meters of snow on it.This means Meribel was set for a great March
April was again a mixed month for weather. Val Thorens had the best snow.
