Meribel, France

Photo of Meribel, France

Meribel looks like you think a French ski resort will. It’s gorgeous. It’s has a pretty town, a huge off piste area to explore and hundreds of lifts, I’m not joking. There are also loads of groomed runs, two parks and two half pipes. Meribel covers three valleys so there’s a good selection of terrain and plenty of space for everyone so you never feel intimidated or squashed. I love Meribel because it’s perfect for freeriding and picking up new tricks. The standard is pretty good and there are a couple of really strong locals who you can watch and see where they like to board and then just tail them (discreetly). It’s also not too quiet but not too hedonistic, when I board I want to board and party, not party so hard that I can’t board, how old do I sound! The best time for skiing in France is between December and April.
