As we turn our attention to next ski season, it’s the finer details that dominate the changes this year in Meribel.
Free wifi on piste
With emphasis placed on the holistic skiing experience, as of next season, there are extensions to the free wifi that has been on offer for since last season. As such if you find yourself at the summit of Plan des Mains chairlift, the DC AREA 43 chill zone, the finish of the Yooni slalom in the Yeti Park, in the new Mottaret centre Piknic’n Relax room, at the top of Rhodos gondola lift and top of Plan de l’Homme chairlift.
Easier, safer beginner slopes
Two of Meribel’s green slopes have been re-designed to make them easier for learners and children. The Escargot (Snail) slope in the Tougnete area now offers a green alternative trail reserved for beginners and an easy route for all other skiers. Part of the beginner Blanchot piste above the Altiport follows a new path to make the descent easier.
Meribel-Mottaret evening sledding
Unleash your inner child (or your real children) on the Himalaya by Night sledding evenings. These take place every Tuesday of the season and on Thursdays during French school holidays.
Feast on marshmallows and hot chocolate and whizz down the floodlit piste to music and enjoy being a child again.
Childrens’ fun and entertainment
As if skiing isn’t enough fun, Meribel will be providing yet more entertainment for children on the slopes this winter.
Mottaret’s excellent Yeti Park, which opened last winter, has now been extended. Along with existing trumpets and tunnels, there is now a zip-wire, toboggans and igloos.
An unrivalled rest spot is the Altai Dragon, which opened last season. Located just off the blue Pic piste and accessed by the Loze chairlift, this is a supreme setting to sit back and admire the view or simply chill. Can the kids find the dragon hiding somewhere in the nearby trees?
The Moon Park has been rebranded the Elements Park. Meribel’s terrain park has been renamed and is now dedicated to freestylers of every level. Even those new to skiing will enjoy the boardercross.
Mottaret’s DC Area 43 also sees improvements with newly decorated shipping containers, free WiFi, a new fun boardercross piste and entertainment every Tuesday and regular “DC parties” with contests.
Mottaret’s new indoor picnic area
Meribel’s Chaudanne Lounge has been such a hit that Mottaret has followed suit. Here you can get out of the cold, eat in comfort and enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation between runs.
The new “Piknic’n Relax” room is located under the Pas du Lac gondola. Whilst here you can enjoy free use of comfy sofas, a kitchen area, wifi and electric recharging points.
