More Info

Meribel is an amalgamation of Allues Valley communities in the Tarentaise Valley of France. Located in the French Alps and the Vanoise National Park, it is world renowned for its impeccable ski conditions and its role as former host of the women’s alpine skiing events during the 1992 Winter Olympics. The backcountry terrain is expansive and alluring, promoting a true wilderness feel in the center of a massive ski region. The Tarentaise Valley resorts and communities are closely associated and the Three Valleys is known to accommodate powder hounds, greenhorns, and everyone in between. The Alpine views from the near-3,000 meter peak are breathtaking, as are all of the other vistas throughout the valley. Lyon, Geneva, and Turin are all within striking distance to Meribel, allowing substantial access to long ski seasons, deep snowpack, and endless backcountry.

Once at the airports, there are ample taxi, bus, train, and car options to get you safely and swiftly to your destination.

Best Time to Visit

Backcountry skiing in Meribel is best done in winter, taking advantage of its snowfall. The cold temperatures help keep the snow primed for great runs. Any time between December and April should prove to be epic, maybe even into May.

An amazing few days of skiing, ski touring and glacier exploring with Jessy. Jessy is a true professional, always alert, safety conscious and tailoring his trips to the ability of his clients - making for a great, memorable experience. (Photos included!). I have been ski-touring with guides for 16 years and would definitely choose Jessy again and recommend him to others.

Nous avons passé un bon moment avec Jessy dans les Trois Vallées. Nous avons fait du ski hors-piste et malgré la météo difficile, il nous a trouvé de belles décentes. Il est sympa, dynamique, prudent et il aime bien les nouvelles technologies dans le domaine du ski.

Deux journées top au milieu des 3 Vallées. Très attentif, Jessy s\'adapte au niveau du groupe et choisit les bonnes pentes. Il nous a fait découvrir de nouveaux coins loin des pistes et cela en toute sécurité. Merci Jessy, on s\'est éclaté et on a bien rigolé. Au fait, tes photos sont magnifiques.
