Families taking the children to the ski slopes generally have a few very specific needs; good beginner slopes, quality ski schools and plentiful non-ski activities to name but three, and Meribel is a resort offering all these things and more. Overall, it is a family friendly resort.
The gentle, tree lined runs in the Altiport are easily accessed via the Golf chairlift in Meribel Village or the Rhodos gondola in Meribel Centre. Once there, children can pick up the basics on a wonderfully wide, long and gentle green piste which is perfect for learning.
There is also a good number of chalets and hotels here with in-house childcare options, meaning parents can book the kids into day care or ski lessons as part of the holiday package, making the process wonderfully easy. Aside from the in-house childcare options, Meribel offers a good selection on external nanny companies offering a wide range of services.
The ski schools here are also worthy of note and Meribel offers some of the finest quality tuition in the Alps. Demand is high and competition amongst the ski schools means the standard is impressive. All levels and ages are perfectly well catered for and the international demand is well met.
If the weather turns against you of the kids need entertainment away from the pistes, Meribel offers an absolute wealth of non-ski activities to enjoy. The usual activities such as cinema, bowling and tobogganing are complemented by more exciting pursuits such as snow-shoeing and ice karting, and the resort has a good quality sports centre as well, offering a further range of activities.
One issue for some families with children visiting Meribel is that it’s a very spread out resort, and this is undoubtedly true. There is little in the way of ski in/out accommodation here and the majority of the chalets are some distance from the actual lifts. But the vast majority of tour operators and chalet companies in Meribel run their own private driver services which make guests’ lives far easier on the whole, and the resort’s public bus service is comprehensive and reliable.
