Great for couples & groups of friends

Staying in a catered chalet is like having your own mini hotel in the Alps for the week.  On arrival you will be welcomed by your chalet couple who will host, keep house and cook for you.  We specifically recruit couples with the hospitality experience and culinary skills to impress, but here at Ski Blanc we also place a high value on people with a fun personality.
You settle in to your ‘home from home’ with en-suite bedrooms, spacious and bright living area, large sun terrace, hot tub, alpine views and in two of our chalets, your own spa facilities.  Relax in front of a log fire and put your feet up whilst you plan your adventures for the week ahead.

A holiday in Meribel gives you access to the Three Valleys Ski Area, which has some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world.

Why is Meribel such a popular destination for couples and groups of friends?

The statistics

The Three Valleys playground cannot be beaten for its skiing and boarding provision.  600km of pistes from beginners slopes to near vertical couloirs serviced by nearly 200 modern high-performance ski lifts will ensure you will never run out of places to explore.

  • 73 piste groomers keep the 1500 hectares of ski runs immaculately groomed for that early morning first run experience.
  • 85% of the area is situated above 1,800 metres for snow sure, high altitude skiing all season long.
  • 321 Alpine ski runs: (51 green, 132 blue, 106 red, 32 black)
  • 25 accessible summits including 10 above 2,500 metres & 6 glaciers
  • 35,000 hectares of nature, 62,000 metres of combined vertical drop

The Scenery

Nestled in the middle of the famous Three Valleys ski area, Meribel is a pretty town with traditional slate and stone built chalets set in to the mountainside.  Mont Vallon rises up above Meribel providing a stunning back drop and the views down over the entire valley are second to none.  Return to your chalet after a day on the slopes, lean back in your balcony hot-tub and enjoy your views over the French Alps.

The dinner party experience

Staying in a catered chalet with a group of couples or friends is like the perfect dinner party experience every evening. On your first night, we will provide a delicious 3 course dinner, each day afternoon tea will be waiting for you after skiing, and then you can relax until dinner is served!  Come together around the table to relive your day and plan the adventures for the week ahead.  Relax in front of a log fire and put your feet up in your chalet ‘home for the week’.  We can cater for special dietary requirements ie vegetarians, lactose intolerant, gluten free.  However, we have to insist that you inform us well in advance of your holiday to allow your hosts to be prepared.

The après party

You can’t get better après ski than in France these days.  The introduction of ‘La Folie Douce’ has added glamour to the party scene in Meribel.  The daily cabaret show provides the entertainment over lunch, then the dance party kicks off at 3pm with guest DJ’s, promotions & events on their sunny terrace with views over the ski slopes.Meribel is also home to the Rond Point with another sunny terrace, cheap drinks, live bands and DJ’s.Lodge de Village has become a legendary venue in recent years with their infamous Tuesday après gig ‘Bring your Sisters’ on yet another party terrace.

The Meribel sunshine

Did you know Meribel has the most sunshine of all the three valley resorts? The open aspect of the middle valley means more hours of winter sunshine. You can literally follow the sun around all day. Even on the shorter January days, you will find the slopes above the Meribel Altiport area are still basking in sunshine long after the shade hits the other three valley resorts.

The resort activities

Part of the Olympic legacy in Meribel are the sports facilities, take advantage of the swimming pool, gym, spa, ice-skating and indoor climbing wall right at the foot of the slopes.  Non skiers can also take advantage of a pedestrian lift pass to explore the beautiful walking trails and even join the rest of the group up in one of the many alpine slope side restaurants.  If it’s pampering you are looking for, then you can try out one of the luxury spas or organise a massage in the chalet for your convenience.   Meribel boasts some of the finest cross country skiing in the world with runs to suit the beginner to the advanced.  For more ways to enjoy the alpine environment ask us for information about some of the other activities available: husky dog sledding, snow shoeing, snow mobiles and more.

The ski & snowboard instructors

A little charm can go a long way when you are learning to ski or snowboard. We find our guests like their instructors fairly good-looking, but not at the price of being distant or moody (although for Henry Cavill -esque looks, they can sometimes deal with moody).  In all seriousness, Meribel has awesome ski & snowboard instructors and we know many of them.  Rest assured, we can find you a chirpy, skilled, patient instructor and if you're lucky, a lovely smile too.  Details of all the local ski schools we recommend can be found here:  Meribel Ski Schools

The nightlife

After your chalet dinner, Meribels many bars offer drink promotions and more live music to tempt you back out.  Two for one cocktails, jugs of beer, and of course the infamous Meribel favourite – Toffee Vodka shots.  Our complimentary minibus service will ferry you to and from town from 5pm until 1am ensuring you don’t miss out on a thing.

You can also stay local in Meribel les Allues, Tsaretta bar is a firm favourite for Ski Blanc guests, newly re-furbished with a traditional local pub atmosphere and English TV coverage of international sports.

What our customers say

  • Just wanted to say what a fantastic time we have had at Chalet Foehn. We were looked after so well. They went out of their way to make sure the children had something they liked to eat each evening and they were always very friendly and chatty. It was our first time being 'hosted' in any holiday situation - one that I wasn't sure about - but it was a pleasure. Meribel Les Allues seemed to us to be the perfect setting for a ski holiday. The bubble made a lovely trip each morning from just a few yards away, our lessons with Magic, couldn't have been better. They looked after the group perfectly. I don't think any of us thought that we would be skiing down slopes in such a way after just 4 lessons. The courtesy minibus service came in very handy and again worked perfectly. All in all it was an absolutely incredible week ( and I hope we'll be able to repeat it next year!) Thank you to all of you for making it so. Best wishes

  • Thanyou once again for an amazing time with Ski Blanc in Chalet Foehn. As ever, the chalet hosts were brilliant and the food - catering for allergies, vegetarians, children and the rest - as always, generous, tasty and top quality. The week was enjoyed equally by those in the 4th year with Ski Blanc as much as the newbies. With the amount of interest already expressed since returning home - we might need two chalets next year! The count down has already begun.
