The lack of snow in the French Alps has been in the news, but there’s still been plenty of skiing on offer in Meribel, nestled nicely in the middle of the 3 Valleys.
With state of the art snow making equipment and pisting experts who are performing a near snow equivalent of the Biblical Feeding of the Five Thousand…ensuring that the links between all the Valleys are open with runs for most ability levels, skiers have still been able to enjoy themselves and more than that, a return to Meribel where the après has been in full swing.
Naturally being a bit higher, at 2,300 metres, and with the Cime de Caron glacier, the focus has been on Val Thorens, with everyone following the snow bricked road to there and enjoying over 90% of the runs which are open. With the Meribel lift company doing their utmost to ensure that skiers can still navigate between the Valleys, there is plenty of pre-Christmas cheer and good will amongst those who have been negotiating the runs and valleys.
Come home time, it has just been a hop, skip and a jump to the many bars that present themselves on the main thoroughfare of Meribel Centre. Perhaps a quick demi at Meribar right there on the Chaudanne, or just a bit further up a chocolat chaud and some light bites at Barometer Bar…the atmosphere is still building in time for Christmas and the season in general.
With a quintessential Savoyard approach to hospitality, all the restaurants and eateries are in full swing and enticing hungry and innocent passers-by with their mouth-watering aromas…tartiflette, cheese fondues. The smells are irresistible and the food even more so.
