In the two villages of Méribel and Mottaret and higher up, beginners can cut their teeth on a wealth of uncrowded nursery slopes.. Intermediates especially will thrive on the 600kms of well-kept pistes; you can ski all week and still leave plenty of runs untouched. Experts can tackle the infamous Courchevel couloirs and the Chanrossa bumps. If the weather closes in, forest runs down the valley are the answer, while in sunny conditions Val Thorens, Europe's highest resort, is the place to head for.
Méribel is one of the more lively alpine resorts for après ski and had a reputation for outstanding nights to match the skiing during the day. Mottaret a little more reserved, but it has a good choice of bars and restaurants including Le Rastro which is always a good buzz.
