Meribel

Hi Snowheads,

I'm looking at going to Meribel in late Feb next year and the accommodation says it's very close to the Morel chair lift. From the piste map is looks like you can work your way over quite easily to the larger Meribel valley area, but I just wanted to see if anyone had any experience of starting and ending their day there and whether there were any pitfalls, is it a pain, etc?

3Vs is a great ski area.

The best in the world for interlinked lifts in a giant ski zone.

Wherever you stay in the main towns / villages, you will be able to get around easily.

Just book it.

@Whitegold Thank you. I've stayed in La Tania and I'll be going back there this year, but I don't want to go back to the same place twice in one year.

@Screaming Dave, yes, easy to link into wider area from Morel chair. Late Feb likely to be busy, with French school winter holidays. So main lift hub areas, eg Chaudanne and Mottaret, probably busy at peak times.

It is not the most convenient location but it is not so bad providing you are not a total beginner.

In Feb with the French ski schools out it will be busy so in your position I might think about making an early start and heading up towards Col de la Loze and skiing in Courcheval. You would stay ahead of the madding crowd for a while.

Coming back from Courcheval via Col de la Loze will be easy providing you stay right as you descend. NB the Pic Noir is not a black run.

Getting back from the main Meribel ski area will require that you use the Rhodos lift, even if you miss the last lift the bus runs till late.

Enjoy it is a vast area with wonderful skiing.

...

This is because the Hulotte piste, to get back to the Morel area, is relatively steep / narrow in places.

Which is perhaps why it is called "Pic Bleu" Very Happy (It does seem to change name and/or grading every few years)

Meribel has only a few ski-in and ski-out locations — and being near the Morel lift is one of them. From the top of the lift, it will just take you a few mins to ski down to the main ski area.

Plus, there are lots of great bars, restaurants and shops close by.

But do check exactly how "close" your accommodation is to the lift — there is nothing worse then a trek in ski-boots which is too short for a ski-bus, but not just an easy stroll.

Enjoy! You will have a great time.

Have stayed in Morel as both a punter and a seasonnaire. It's better as a punter.
