Family winter activities in Méribel

Winter family holidays in the mountains are always full of laughter, wonderful memories and shared experiences! Méribel, a certified “Family Plus” resort, prides itself on offering the best possible services to families, which include a host of activities specially designed for children.

Family activities

Sur les pistes, en pleine nature, avec ou sans skis aux pieds, mais aussi en intérieur, ce ne sont pas les activités à faire en famille l’hiver qui manquent dans le domaine des 3 Vallées.

Skiing as a family in the world’s largest ski area

Of all the top family winter activities in Méribel, our skiing activities are obviously the first to spring to mind! Why? Quite simply because you are in the heart of the 3 Valleys with a ski area designed for families. Méribel ski resort has everything in place to provide an unforgettable experience for the whole family, in which everyone can flourish and have a great time:

  • Ski and snowboard courses and lessons for all levels are run by our schools and instructors;
  • Little ones aged 18 months to 3 years old can discover the snow through games at “les Saturnins” nursery. Children aged 3 to 5 can learn to ski in a fun way at “Piou Piou” ski school, under the constant supervision of ski instructors;
  • Fun slopes with different themes for all ages and regular events in the ski area for the whole family to enjoy;

And if you need a break between runs, there are comfortable picnic rooms and chalets along the slopes.

Discover family winter sports activities in the mountains

Do you like being on the snow but don’t ski? No problem! Méribel has lots of fun activities to do in winter with your family:

  • Dedicated sledging slopes, away from skiers, where you can have fun in complete safety. Try the Black Forest adventure : 3.4 km sledge run on snow, descending 470m with 28 corners.
  • Have a go at winter sports you’ve never done before like skijoring or fat biking: fun and original activities to do as a family!

Try out nature and outdoor activities for all the family

Spending a family holiday in Méribel means enjoying a picture-postcard setting, fresh air and breathtaking snowy landscapes. So it’s only natural that we provide nature and outdoor activities to do as a family during the winter holidays. Little ones will love going on a pony-sledge ride, while teenagers looking for a thrill will enjoy a snowmobile ride or paragliding with a spectacular view of the 3 Valleys. And the whole family can admire the French Alps’ sumptuous landscapes on a snowshoe hike or by taking part in “Explor Games”, a unique geocaching experience in the heart of Vanoise National Park, where you have to solve riddles to complete the quest!

Make the most of captivating activities for children

Méribel Tourisme runs activities for children and families throughout the winter season. Go on mini-adventures with your family: learn to identify animal tracks, arts and crafts, treasure hunts, escape games, etc. And if you have always dreamt of building an igloo, you can also do that in Méribel!

Try our indoor activities after skiing or when the weather is bad

Make use of Méribel’s Olympic Park sports and leisure complex throughout your stay, both after skiing and on bad weather days. They offer a range of indoor activities for all the family. With a pool, ice rink, bowling alley, climbing and spas with family rates, there is plenty to keep everyone happy.
