Guaranteed snow

In Méribel, as rest of Les Trois Vallées, there is a real guaranteed snow. A great importance is given to piste maintenance, to ensure your enjoyment and safety.

In Méribel, 711 snow canons ensure snow cover on 51% of the ski area through a mixture of air and water (without any additives). In addition, the majority of the ski area is situated above 1800m, which guarantees excellent snow cover throughout the season from December to April.

The minimum altitude level for skiing on the 3 Vallées ski area is 1300 metres and the maximum 3230 metres, meaning that 85% of the ski area is located above 1800 metres. There are 25 accessible summits, 10 of which are in excess of 2500 metres. 2000 snow making machines cover 1/3 of the ski area. Thanks to natural qualities (altitude) and regular, ongoing investments in cultured snow production, the 3 Valleys area is able to guarantee snow cover from the beginning of December until the end of April over the entire ski area, offering wide ski runs.

 

But none of this would be possible in Méribel without the 45 drivers and 21 machines which every night groom, soften and spread the snow so next morning you ski on velvety snow. But it doesn’t end there. In summer too the ski runs are prepared: re-shaped, de-stoned and re-grassed so as to ensure the best possible snow cover in winter and offer you the best possible playground.

In the 3 Vallées, the wide offer of ski runs is maintained nightly by 80 piste grooming machines. Your satisfaction is our priority!
