Journey Times & Distances from Airports to Méribel
Shared Transfers to and from Méribel
Shared transfers are an excellent low-cost option. You will be taken right to, or from your hotel or chalet, no matter where you are staying in Méribel. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people who will be collected from or dropped off at different locations in Méribel.
You might have to wait for more passengers at the airport or you might have to wait for other passengers to be dropped off in Méribel before you, consequently your journey time might slightly increase. However, you will always be notified in due time of your exact pick-up time.
Contrarily, there is always the likelihood that you are lucky, with all passengers coming off the same flight or from flights landing within minutes of each other. Or, drop-offs in Méribel might be close to one another or you might be the first to be dropped-off in Méribel.
Either way, the shared transfer experience requires a bit of “give and take” and a thoughtful attitude from all passengers.
TransferFix offers shared transfers to and from Méribel in the winter season.
Online, there are resources that allow the VTC to check that flights are departing on time. It is likely that your VTC will have as much information as you about any delays. However, on the booking confirmation form, you will be provided with their mobile number, so you can call for reassurance. If the VTC is not able to transport you in a later vehicle departure, by the time your flight lands, it is likely that the VTC will have arranged for your transportation with another VTC, for the same price that you have paid already. Check your mobile phone for info that will usually arrive by SMS.

When you book your private transfer online, you receive an instant confirmation via e-mail or text message and your driver will meet you at the airport.
With TransferFix and a private ride to or from Méribel, you can enjoy the privacy of a taxi service while paying less money than a premium luxury limousine service.
Méribel is a ski resort in the Tarentaise Valley in the French Alps. Méribel consists of the three neighbouring villages in the Les Allues commune of the Savoie département of France, Méribel Centre, Méribel-Mottaret and Méribel Village.
Méribel is a purpose-built ski resort, founded by Colonel Peter Lindsay, who wanted to establish a new site for winter sports, away from the ski resorts of Austria and Germany.
The resort was home to events of the 1992 Winter Olympics (Albertville), as it hosted the ice hockey and the women's alpine skiing events.
Méribel was the host to the acclaimed Altitude Festival until 2011 when the festival moved to Austria.
With its wooden chalets, wonderful powder and excellent family-friendly facilities, Méribel is one of the most loved French ski resorts. In fact, it is estimated that a third of all U.S. tourists who visit France in the winter prefer Méribel.
Skiing in Méribel
Located at the centre of the Trois Vallées, which is the world's largest ski area, Méribel offers 150 km (93 mi) of ski slopes, serviced by 41 ski lifts in its immediate area.
The 3 Vallées consists of 600 km (370 mi) of ski slopes, serviced by a total of 183 ski lifts, which can transport 260,000 people per hour.
The 3 Vallées is a versatile ski domain, offering gentle and easy slopes for beginners, as well as difficult and challenging runs for the most advanced skiers.
In addition, if you wish to ski off the beaten path, The Three Valleys offers a vast area for off-piste skiing (120 km or 74.5 mi), that is easily accessible from the lifts.
As the name suggests, the area was originally composed of three valleys: Saint-Bon, Allues and Belleville. Later, the Maurienne valley was added to this excellent ski domain, but the name remained the 3 Vallées.
Besides Méribel, there are seven other ski resorts in the 3 Vallées: Courchevel, la Tania, Brides-les-Bains, Val Thorens, Les Menuires, Saint-Martin-de-Belleville and Orelle.
The ski season starts in December and ends in April, and it is subjectable to snow conditions. As a reference point, the 2018/19 winter season was open from the 8th of December 2018 until the 22nd of April 2019.
Moreover, a weekly ticket in the Trois Vallées allows you to ski one day in Paradiski (Les, Arcs, La Plagne) and in Espace Killy (Val d'Isère and Tignes).
The Olympic Park is located in the heart of Méribel and right next to the ski slopes.
It constitutes the ideal place to relax after a hard day of skiing or to enjoy a perfect day with the whole family while in Méribel.
The Parc Olympique offers an indoor ice rink, an indoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, a wellness area, a spa, an indoor climbing wall and an ice rink.
There is also a bowling alley and sports bar attached to the Parc Olympique, which has six bowling lanes, pool tables, video games and large screens that broadcast live sport.
Après Ski in Méribel
As the preferred winter vacation resort of many internationals, especially Brits and Americans, Méribel is one of the liveliest resorts in France.
Located on the slopes on the ski down into town, "the Rond Point" is one of the most popular après-ski bars. The party normally starts at 3 pm and live bands often play here.
Down from "the Ronnie", you will find "Le Coeur de Cristal", which has an international vibe and a DJ on the balcony playing from around 3 pm. There are excellent choices of beers, wines, champagnes, plus snacks.
In the city, you will find quieter and more sophisticated places, if you want to get away from the international atmosphere and get a real taste of how it feels like to party in France. E.g.: La Poste and the Taverne.
Culture & heritage
For those passionate about culture & heritage, Méribel has a lot to offer.
The Baroque routes, created in 1992 for the Albertville Olympic Games, bring together 80 Baroque art sites in Savoie. Within the resort, you will find this specific Baroque spirit in the church of Saint-Martin aux Allues, rebuilt in 1698. The church can be visited with or without a guide.
All in all, Méribel is the perfect combination of unique architecture and French rural elements. The ideal blend of innovation & tradition. The resort extends over fifteen villages, over more than 1,000 hectares, from Allues to Méribel-Mottaret and features affiliated architecture.
