Beginner and junior skiers in #Meribel now have even more choice!

Great news – a new, specially-equipped beginners’ piste will shortly open in Meribel’s Altiport area, in the woods. The childrens entertainment piste aims to encourage children to learn about forest animals by guessing the names of the model animals they find along the ski trail.

The beginners’ Doron Zen area is also being updated and the slope will be made gentler to make learning to ski more fun. These developments are perfect for families taking a ski holiday in the region! Don’t forget, if you want a green, convenient way to Meribel this winter, http://www.skimeribel.co.uk offers eight days’ skiing on the slopes! Call Tricia on 44 (0)20 8668 8223 for more info.

Don’t mourn the #Altitude Festival – Méribel is still comedy central!

We are sad to report that the Altitude Festival is to quit Méribel after three years, and is moving to Austria. According to our close friends at http://www.merinet.com, the Altitude Festival started in 2008 and brought stars of the comedy world such as Marcus Brigstocke and Phil Jupitas to perform in Méribel.

HOWEVER!!! Top level comedy can still be enjoyed in the resort, thanks to Altitude Festival’s organiser Richard Lett’s other company, “Taking the Piste”, which will be running regular comedy events in the region. There are also many wonderful venues offering comedy and live music here. So, don’t mourn the Altitude Festival too much – Meribel’s unique blend of comedy, music and mayhem is still very much present!

In addition, the resort continues to sponsor the well-loved music event, The Little World Festival, held in-resort from 12 to 19 March. This event is curated by brilliant UK pop-rock band, The Feeling.

If you want to book your ski trip around a specific event, call Tricia on +44 (0)20 8668 8223 for a chat. Email us at info@skimeribel.co.uk or visit www.skimeribel.co.uk for offers and information on our luxury sleeper coach.
