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 18-Apr-2014)
The fine sunny weather which blessed the French resorts on Monday 14th April has lasted all week. This has reduced base depths in some locations and the snow does soften quite quickly, with the freezing level hovering around the 2,500m mark or just above it. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend, but the good news is that the freezing level is expected to drop to around 2,000m on Saturday 19th April which could result in fresh snowfall.
As you might expect for this time of year it is best to stick to the highest slopes if you prefer the conditions to be less sun affected, especially the sheltered and higher north facing slopes.
The Pyrenean resorts of Cauterets (260/360cm) and Bareges/La Mongie (65/270cm) offer some superb skiing at the moment due to the deep snow bases on the upper slopes.
Further north in the Alps there is also excellent skiing available. The classics for late season, such as Tignes (40/190cm), Val d’Isere (40/128cm) and Val Thorens (85/190cm), offer fantastic spring skiing due to their high elevations. The upper slopes at La Plagne (5/200cm) are also in very good shape. In the Southern Alps, Isola 2000 (95/270cm) has an impressive base depth on the higher slopes at the moment of over two and a half metres, providing lovely riding conditions.
European Weather Outlook
Predominantly cloudy weather is forecast across the European resorts over the Easter weekend and next week. The freezing level could drop to around 2,000m at the start of the weekend before rising back up to over 2,500m. The altitude of the slopes and the ski area will therefore dictate whether you can expect fresh snow or rain over this period.
