The Three Valleys has such varied terrain that there is always something really interesting outside the boundary of the Ski resort.

From glaciers and high Alps down to meadows and woodlands and even delightful descents to the charming villages and hamlets.

The peaks reached by cable car or chair lift are over 3000 m. Three Valleys become 6 valleys when you spend some time with a Guide. There is nothing better than an early start too ensure you are the fist skiers at 3300 m and followed by snowy adventure ending in an Alpine Village at 1000m that just happens to have a great little restaurant.

With the arrival of the wider and rockered skis the off piste has become far more accessible to more skiers. Snowboarders have always had the right equipment for the softer snow you generally find further afield.

Ski Touring lifts the whole experience to another level. Its highly fashionable at the moment as it can be a fantastic work out. The reality is more a gentle walk that quickly shows you the natural side of the mountain. The animal tracks become interesting as you mimic their routes up the hill.

Most of the guides will use the ski lifts strategically to then walk for say 45 mins to an hour. This will get you to beautiful areas of the 3 Valleys and do not be surprised with some very close encounters with the wildlife. Regular skiers to the 3 Valleys are always astonished when they get away from the ski slopes and start to explore the surrounding Valleys.

Have a close look at the options available with The Bureau De Guides, Meribel. As we highly recommend using a guide with safety equipment.

Combine your chalet holiday stay with us in Meribel . It will certainly change your holidays and likely to change the rest of your visits to the French Alps.

The Ski & Boot lockers are really handy to have.
They are located at the top of the bubble station that you take from Les Allues to La Chaudanne (the main Meribel lift station, where all the lifts depart from and connect to the 3 valleys.)

Each locker has a ventilated drying rack for your boots and comfortably holds 3 sets of skis/boards.

They are both reasonably priced and practical.
You can change as soon as you finish skiing and continue your après ski in comfortable shoes.
You may want to wander round Meribel centre, go to the lively après ski bars, check out the selection of shops, or relax at the Olypmic centre where they have swimming pool, spa facilities, ice skating, bowling & climbing wall.
Or simply drop your kit off at the lockers, so you never have to carry it during the week.

Ski Blanc reserves the ski lockers for all our guests in advance.

We check with you on arrival at the chalet, how many your require.
There is no obligation to take them and we cancel the ones that aren’t used.
Parents with 2 small children will be able to squeeze into one.

If you do know how many you require, just advise us on our online booking form.

What our customers say

  • We were delighted with all aspects of our holiday in Chalet Les Sauges. Accommodation was first class and the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were superb. The food was of the highest quality and the variety and quality was maintained throughout the week. All credit to Jamie and Natalia.

    Claire Richardson, 05 April 2024 Chalet Les Sauges Meribel

  • Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a wonderful holiday! In particularly our hosts, were, happy, relaxed, thoughtful and kind! The food was amazing.The chalet spotless and everything always ready. Great to chat to and made us feel so comfortable and at home. Just perfect in every way.

    Debbie Stewart 18 Feb 2024 Chalet Covie, Meribel

  • Lovely chalet and fantastic location – just a minute to the main lift . Wonderful area to ski – we have been to Meribel quite a few times now and it never disappoints. Food delicious and facilities very good.

    Jenny Sanders, 09 Mar 2024, Chalet L'Erine, Meribel

  • We all had an excellent time in Chalet Foehn. It was lovely; cosy, homely and providing everything we needed. The resort was great. This was my first visit to Meribel and I'm impressed with the number and variety of the runs available over the three valleys. We managed to ski everyday albeit not quite all day every day. Particularly; I'd like to thank our hosts. They both looked after us brilliantly. The food was delicious, the packed lunches just right and the cakes wonderful. I am still shocked how nice vegan brownies can be!

    Nick Leigh, 25 Mar 2024 Chalet Foehn, Meribel

  • I can safely say that all 3 families, had an absolutely fantastic holiday from the time we arrived at the chalet to when we left. From the great customer service, that Janey afforded us while organising the holiday, to the face to face contact with you all while there. We have to make a very special mention to our hosts who made our stay extra special and who were fabulous chalet hosts. They make the perfect team, both friendly and professional, ensuring that each and every one of us was catered for…which is quite a task given we had quite a few dietary requirements! Their food was excellent….the children deciding to eat with us rather than eating a separate menu is testimony to that!
