Meribel Ski Resort

Meribel ski resort and Courchevel along with a third resort, Val Thorens make up a vast ski area called the Trois Vallees ( Three Valleys ). Each resort is quite different. Courchevel Village (1850) is smart, sophisticated and with exceptional restaurants, shops and bars, this is the snowy playground that entices the rich and famous. Courchevel Moriond (1650) is quieter, with an old village centre.  Meribel ski resort has a more down to earth, family feel to it. The 150km of pistes that are Meribel skiing are accessed by a world-record breaking system of high-capacity gondolas that gets more skiers up the hill quicker than any other ski resort, and being the centre valley allows easy access to both Courchevel and Val Thorens.

Having stayed at both Courchevel and Meribel it is hard to know which one I'd go back to again. I think Meribel has it over Courchevel because it is in the middle of the 3 valleys, so it is easier to visit the other 2 valleys. Plus it had more shops and entertainment options. I felt the return run was better in Courchevel and the on slope eating options were better. Since from either resort you end up on the same slopes (if you get what I mean) it's hard to choose on that basis.
