So that skiing is accessible to all, our resort works together to provide access, services and ski passes designed for people with disabilities. Hospitality and welcoming all without discrimination are values that have shaped Méribel for years. Come and discover how to take part in adaptive skiing in Méribel.
Méribel’s ski schools provide specialist equipment so that their qualified instructors can ski with wheelchair-users or people who have difficulty coordinating their lower limbs.
Various solutions are offered by the ski schools so they can cater to a wide range of abilities: standing skiing (using one or two skis), sit-skiing (chair and Nordic sled), and guidance for visually impaired skiers.
So the resort can welcome everybody, we know it is vital to provide suitable access for people with reduced mobility. This is why in Méribel you will find specially adapted ski lifts as well as disabled access to toilets, car parks, cinemas, the Parc Olympique sports centre, bowling alley, Altiport and theatre etc.
Disabled people and an accompanying person are entitled to a 50% reduction on the price of a half-day, full-day or multi-day lift pass. To do so, they must present a disability card (stating a degree of disability of 80% or more) or a mobility card (which must state “Invalidity”) at the cash desk. In order for accompanying persons to benefit from this reduction, the disability card must mention “Need for accompaniment” or “Need for accompaniment – blindness”.
