Peak Dates Holidays

Meribel is a resort which works very well for families and children, and as such it’s a sensible resort choice for the Half Term weeks when children are out of school.

The learner slopes in and around the tree-lined and sheltered Altiport area are just perfect for children and learners practising their first turns on the snow. Aside from the Altiport, the Meribel valley has a good number of slightly steeper blue pistes which are great for progression. It’s also possible to leave the Meribel valley and travel into Courchevel or over towards les Menuires using only blue pistes, so once a certain level of skiing has been attainted the possibilities for exploring the terrain are many and varied.

There is also an outstanding level of tuition available here. Ski schools such as Magic in Motion and Parallel Lines have been in operation for a good while now and strong competition amongst ski schools drives the quality of tuition to a very good standard.

Meribel also offers a good range of chalets and hotels with in-house childcare available. Not only does this offer further peace of mind to concerned parents, but it makes their lives wonderfully easy. From morning childcare groups to ski school supervision and evening care, the options are many and varied. This is also a resort with a good number of external childcare companies offering their own further ranges of childcare possibilities.

And families taking children to Meribel, who may require a selection of non-ski activities to enjoy if the kids need a break or if the weather takes a turn for the worst, can rest assured. Meribel offers the standard basics like cinema, shops and bowling alley but you’ll also find a climbing wall, snow-shoeing tours, husky sledding and more exciting activities besides.

Although Meribel has a reputation for being expensive, and Half Term is undoubtedly pricey, the fact remains that this is a resort with a spectacular range of accommodation to choose from, so the budget-conscious can also give consideration to a stay here. Chalets and hotels from 2* upwards are available in good locations, and the various travel plans they offer cater to all requirements. If you want the package including flights and transfers, or you’re driving or taking the train to Moutiers, there are properties here with pricing set-ups to match.

And of course Half Term is a busy week – finding a resort with lifts swift and numerous enough to handle the increased skier traffic is important. Down in Meribel Centre, the Rhodos, Tougnete and Saulire gondolas are perfectly capable of moving people up the mountains in large numbers, and there are a couple of further chairlifts as well. The Morel chairlift leaves a residential area at the top of the resort and takes skiers directly into the Meribel valley – it’s a fantastic shortcut for people staying in the Morel part of town.
