Families on the Slopes

Meribel is an amazing resort to ski as a family as there are plenty of greens, blues and red runs. The Altiport area is a lovely way to introduce your children to skiing by taking the Moon Wild route through the forest. There are also themed areas and snowparks with Kenotte the Meribel hare leading the way.

The Inuit village is also in the Altiport area and has banked turns, mini slalom and themed games. The Moon Park has 10 hectares of obstacles to practice freestyle, jumps and acrobatics. Le P’tit Moon is a designated area especially for young skiers aged 6-12yrs. This is a fun course of banked turns. There are also Zen Zones throughout Meribel and Mottaret where the area is closed off and safe for beginners to practice.

If your family has been active all morning and the children are in need of a break then there are picnic areas at the start of the Saulire Express and below the Pas du Lac gondola in Mottaret.

During the school holidays the ESF runs a  torch lit decent that children can be involved in.

Families Off the Slopes

The fun doesn’t stop when they take their ski boots off.

There are plenty of activities for your children to get involved in such as Igloo building and cheese fondue nights for 7-12 year olds during the school holidays.

There are also ‘world of snow’ night outings with tales of the mountains during the French school holidays.

Entertainment is put on throughout the week such as children’s shows and magic shows.

For something a little different then head to a toboggan run. These are made up of 3 runs with crash pads and a nearby picnic area for the parents to relax while the children have fun. The runs are at the Chaudanne, Meribel Village and Mottaret.

Finally, if you have the energy there is bowling for children 3 years and over.  Children under 5 will get free entry into the ice rink and swimming pool. There is  even a cinema.
