A charming resort built at an altitude of 1 450m to 1800m, Méribel blends in well with its environment, thanks to its chalets with double-sloping roofs and wooden façades. The ski area, part of the remarkable 3 Vallées, was chosen to host the 1992 Winter Olympics. The women's downhill skiing and ice hockey events were held here. During summer, it is all about hiking and mountain biking. This is a wonderful place for walking the peaks.
