Downhill skiing in Méribel

Part of the World’s largest ski area, it is no surprise that Méribel has access to a plethora of advanced downhill runs to both challenge and excite experienced skiers. Within Méribel itself you will find the Olympic downhill Face run – a daring black run which was purposely created for the women’s downhill skiing events in the 1992 Olympics. Taking on the challenge of the Face is a must for advanced skiers in Méribel.

Competitive downhill skiing in Méribel

One of the Alp’s most popular ski resorts, Méribel regularly hosts competitive World Cup downhill events throughout the winter season. Be sure to check out what is on in Méribel when you are there and also keep an eye on the events calendar for other resorts within the Trois Vallees which are easily accessed from Méribel. The high altitude resort of Val Thorens is a popular race destination due to its snow-sure slopes while Courchevel has also played host to downhill events.

For a cosy chalet at the heart of Méribel, Chalet Loden is the perfect option for a relaxing stay while you watch the action on the slopes.

Non competitive downhill skiing Méribel

Experience the thrill of the race for yourself and take on Méribel’s downhill slopes for yourself. With several black runs, advanced skiers can challenge themselves throughout the resort. You will find the famous Olympic run by taking the Roc de Fer lift and then continuing on the Olympic lift to the Face.

Once you have taken on the downhill runs in Méribel, branch out to the rest of the Trois Vallees for even more thrills and excitement. Tackle some of the world’s hardest runs in Courchevel, just a short ski from Méribel. Ideal for those looking for a challenge, Courchevel is known for its steep blacks with plenty of moguls. Val Thorens, the highest resort in the ski zone, has plenty of wide, steep runs for advanced skiers to attack. Height is the main advantage in Val Thorens, guaranteeing its runs have snow all season long and with access to 3 glaciers and 4 summits, advanced skiers have a multitude to choose from.

Whether you are visiting Méribel as a spectator, competitor or just for fun, the resort is a superb location for downhill skiing and Mark Warner’s chalet is the perfect place to stay.
