Ski and tourism in Meribel
For lovers of winter sports, Méribel is the perfect resort. With its 600 kilometres of slopes, for experienced skiers as well as for beginners, with its beautiful landscapes, which have retained all their authenticity, with its small typical villages, it is the soul of Savoy that offers itself as a bonus to visitors who come to play in the powder snow. A complete experience, for a total escape. 300 tracks are available to fans of freeride, snowboard, telemark... Hikers are not left out, they will be able to cross exceptional landscapes: larch forests, pasture hamlets, small valleys asleep under the snow, waterfalls frozen in the ice and, of course, the Mont-Blanc within a short distance... And, what's better, after a day in the mountains than to enjoy the famous Savoyard gastronomy with Its fondue, its gratin, its charcuterie and its cheeses: enough to find energy!
Did you know? It was a Scottish major, Peter Lindsey, who discovered this little corner of paradise in 1936 and built the first ski lift there. He also asked major architects to design his first hotels with a single motto: authenticity. Méribel and its small villages are therefore a marvel to discover also in summer, when skiers leave the place to cyclists, hikers, lovers of golf, canyoning and other activities combining sport and nature. Come and enjoy the generosity of the Savoy nature and the many sporting events offered by the city: from mountain biking competitions to fly fishing, there is something for everyone. Without forgetting the local heritage: the church of Saint-Martin to Les Allues, rebuilt in 1698, is thus on the «Baroque Ways» created on the occasion of the Olympic Games of Albertville, in 1992, to highlight the Baroque art sites of Savoy. To discover the rich history of the valley, you can go, right next to the church, to the Museum of Les Allues.
