Skiing in the Three Valleys


Méribel-Mottaret is the biggest inter-linked ski area in the world and is situated at the very top of the Méribel Valley, nestled between Courchevel and Val Thorens. Due to its north-facing aspect and over a thousand snow cannons, skiing is guaranteed from December to late April. High altitude and exceptional snow conditions truly make Méribel-Mottaret a winter wonderland.  


Whether you are completely new to the sport, or you are an advanced skier, there are options for all abilities. From gentle tree-lined ski paths and nursery slopes, to wide intermediate red runs, challenging black runs and off-piste experiences for the advanced skier, you can truly carve out your perfect holiday.


With a huge variety of activities, bars and restaurants to choose from, let us help curate your perfect winter alpine escape. Explore our winter playground experiences below.  




Nestled at the highest point in the Meribel valley (1700m), just a 300m walk from the Mottaret centre ski lifts, bars and restaurants, our boutique apartment is the perfect mix of being ‘in amongst the action’ whilst remaining entirely private and secluded. For skiers who are happy to do a short 10m section of off-piste you can join a groomed ski du fond trail and then ski back into the apartment.  


The Three Valleys itself boast over 600 km of ski slopes for all levels and around 180 ski lifts. With this connectivity, you can easily explore the beauty of the sister resorts of Val Thorens, Les Menuires, Saint Martin de Belleville, Courchevel and La Tania. If it’s snow parks you’re after, Méribel has its own collection, with boardercross and half pipes for skiers and snowboarders.
