What's new in the ski area?

Fun zone, cosy area, panoramic view

It’s all bump and jump in Méribel!
For all those who are always on the lookout for the next snowy adventure, Méribel is transforming its Elements Park into the vibrant Bump’N’Jump zone. Imagine yourself hurtling down not one, not two, but three separate “Runs”, each designed to awaken the sensation-hungry slider in you. It’s the perfect place to mix adrenalin, originality and pure pleasure.

A cosy spot in the heart of the mountains
Relaxing after an intense morning on the slopes? There’s nothing like a good meal in a warm spot. And then, surprise! Head for the wilderness of Roc de Tougne to discover the Cabane du Lac. Not only does it invite you into a cosy cocoon for an indoor picnic, but this season it has a little corner of open-air paradise in store for you: a giant hammock where you can lie back, relax and admire the beauty of Méribel.

Breathtaking panoramic views of Mont Vallon
Get a bird’s eye view of the Gébroulaz glacier from this new area! Sit back, take a breath and immortalise your time on the roof of Méribel. It’s enough to make all your friends jealous!

A night-time gondola for sparkling evenings
Last but not least, those who like to stay up all night will be delighted: the Chalets gondola lift extends your night-time escapades. Running from Méribel-Mottaret to the Hameau du Mottaret, it is now open from 7.30am to 11.30pm. Perfect for a little après-ski on the snow front or a romantic evening in one of Mottaret’s restaurants.

While Méribel continues to innovate with splendid new features every season, let’s not forget that every visit to this Alpine enclave is a discovery in itself.

For visitors discovering Méribel for the first time, everything exudes novelty. Imagine the silvery glint of the sun on the snow-covered pines of the Plan de Tuéda nature reserve, the exhilarating sensations of a snowshoe walk from the heights of the Altiport or the thrill of a flight over the majestic mountains with the flying club. ✈
