Méribel Resort Info
Méribel lies in the heart of the Three Valleys, which remains one of the most popular ski areas in the Alps. It has 200 lifts, 600km of well linked, all-ability pistes and off-pistes to match. Intermediates will flourish, but both the weaker and stronger skiers aren't overlooked, as there is something to keep everyone busy. Boarders and freestylers have the choice of 2 snow parks, with 5 more in other Three Valleys resorts.
Méribel ski resort
The resort actually consists of five separate parts but there are two main areas, which comprise the vast majority of the accommodation. These are Méribel-Centre and Méribel-Mottaret. Both are largely chalet and apartment based, giving the resort that cosy Alpine feel, dreamed of by so many. There are plenty of clubs and bars in both to keep the crowds happy after a long day of skiing and exploring.
Aesthetically appealing because of its many chalet-style buildings, Méribel's biggest plus is its location at the heart of the Trois Vallées. Along with its great skiing and après-ski events, Méribel makes for a great stay.

Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 21-Dec-2014)
Unfortunately rain was falling across much of France on Thursday 18th December. This followed some good snowfalls of up to 20cm on Wednesday, which below approximately 2,000-2,500m will have been affected by the rainfall. That being said, upper slopes will make good gains from this snowstorm, so hopefully more terrain up high should open for the coming weekend.
The best conditions again remain at altitude, with glacier resorts seeing the most snowfall but more importantly snow on Thursday rather than rain. Tignes (25/40cm) saw 20cm up on the Grande Motte glacier and over the links across to Val d’Isere (10/40cm). Val Thorens (60/100cm) continues its excellent start to the season, reporting 20cm of fresh snow and owing to its high altitude it was still snowing on Thursday.
Elsewhere, the situation is not looking as good. In the lower resorts, such as those in the Portes du Soleil the rain has been a big set back. The upper slopes should hold on to Wednesday’s snowfall, but the latest webcam images on Thursday suggest that at resort level much of this is already melting.
As many resorts are due to open this weekend, keep an eye on resort websites for the latest opening information following Thursday’’s rainfall.
European Weather Outlook
The weather across Europe is set to be predominantly sunny as we move into next week. Some clouds could deliver fresh snow at the start of the weekend but this will mostly be in Andorra, Austria, Germany and Switzerland. This will not be enough to dramatically enhance the overall riding conditions but fresh snow is still a nice thing to receive. Next week will then be predominantly sunny with the freezing level rising to over 3,000m for Tuesday 23rd December before plummeting again to around 1,000m for Christmas. There is good news for Christmas too as further fresh snowfall is forecast on Christmas Day or Boxing Day at most European resorts.
Norway and Sweden are forecast a different week to most of Europe though, with fresh snow predicted on most days. The Swedish resort of Salen may be the exception here though as less snow may land at this resort.
The Scottish resorts should see a similarly cloudy week to the Scandinavian resorts although rain may result at times and strong winds are expected, which could affect lift operations. Fresh snowfall is forecast at times though, and Christmas visitors could be in for a great time with snow on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
