Try to imagine snow-capped peaks, world class slopes, luxury resorts and you have some idea of what it’s like to ski in Méribel. Known globally as one of the best places to ski, Méribel represents the peak for both beginners and experts alike and we can’t wait to help you get there. In order to use Méribel’s fantastic skiing services though, you’ll need to buy a ski pass and we’ve listed some information to help you choose the right one. |
Choosing the best ski pass for your family depends on whether they’ve skied before or are starting out for the first time. For the former, try a Méribel Valley Pass which gives you access to the whole of Méribel but no further. It’s a great platform for a family ski holiday and is considerably cheaper than some of the other options. If you’re looking for an absolute beginner’s package, consider the Méribel Minipass which covers the lower slopes (Rhodos & Olympe gondolas, Altiport, Morel & Golf chairlifts) and is perfect for a family’s first venture into skiing. Another option is the Family Pass which usually offers discounts for skiing holidays lasting 6-21 days.
For more comprehensive access to the Méribel area and its surrounding there’s the 3 Valleys Pass, which offers greater access to the more advanced pistes and as such is better suited for adventurous skiers. With this you can reach the largest linked ski area in the world (around 600km of pistes) and intermediate skiers and above will definitely benefit from the more challenging ski experience. Group Passes, or Le Pass Tribu, can be perfect for three or more people looking for a discount on trips lasting six days and up.
Prices and Where to Buy
The price for passes vary greatly according to the season, ski area coverage and duration, so bear this in mind when planning your skiing holiday. As well as this, there are different passes for pedestrians if skiing isn’t quite your thing and you just want to enjoy the stunning scenery. For convenience, Méribel ski passes can be bought online and this means you can head straight out onto the slopes. We do suggest, though, that you check the weather forecasts on arrival and speak to your accommodation provider about the best options, otherwise you might be left with the wrong type of pass and an unnecessary headache.
