in the heart of Meribel
Ski Basics; exceptional skiing and excellent service, that doesn't cost the earth.
Based exclusively in Meribel, our well located hand-picked chalets are complemented by an outstanding friendly and professional service. We take care of all the details so you can enjoy a stress-free ski holiday with real flexibility and an affordable price tag.
We are proud that Ski Basics have been providing great value catered chalet holidays in Meribel for over 15 years. We are passionate about great skiing, know The Three Valleys inside out and are here to help you enjoy the slopes to make the most of what this magical place has to offer.
At Ski Basics we do our best to think of everything you might need to have a great skiing holiday, from beginning to end.
It starts with simple group bookings, airport transfers, ski fitting and passes organised before you arrive. When you’re here in the stunning mountains you’ll wake up to delicious breakfasts, put on dry ski gear, we’ll help get you on the piste each day, do the daily chores, prepare afternoon cakes and finally serve delicious evening meals so you can relax in style at the end of a great day out.
Our chalets are handpicked for their Alpine style, ‘home from home’ comfort and prime locations in Meribel. Curl up in front of log fires, relax in the spacious living rooms, snuggle in to comfortable beds with fresh crisp linen and luxuriate in deep baths, hot showers or even the sauna to soothe tired limbs while your hosts prepare delicious dinners.
We offer two styles of chalet experience - standard and plus+, so you can find something to suit you, the size of your party and your budget.
This year, we are pleased to be able to offer the option of self-catering in one of our new chalets.
At Ski Basics we aim to provide everyone with a tailor-made chalet holiday. We welcome families, groups of friends and young children alike and understand each have specific needs.
Your chalet manager is always on hand to help and advise you, including delivering your ski passes, booking ski schools in Meribel and organising ski rental. While you unwind over drinks in the evening they are on hand to help plan your next day’s routes through Meribel's pistes and parks.
Being based exclusively in Meribel, the heart of The Three Valleys, means that we are available, flexible and personal.
In all Ski Basics’ chalets our professional and friendly team of hosts will be on hand throughout your stay. With a real passion for skiing and a "nothing is too much trouble" attitude, they create a relaxed yet professional atmosphere that guests love to come back to year after year.
Selected for their friendliness, enthusiasm and, of course, exceptional hosting ability, they are equally well versed on Meribel as a resort and will be happy to help you find your way, from suggesting the best board jump spots, routes around The Three Valleys to recommending a bar for the evening's festivities.
Each morning your host will lay out breakfast, on your return from skiing you'll find a tasty, freshly-baked cake and on 6 nights you will be treated to a 3 course evening meal with complimentary wine.
The plus+ service goes one step further offering even more indulgent tea or coffee in bed, cooked breakfasts, newspapers with afternoon tea, canapés and aperitifs, unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks among other gourmet treats.
We believe that Meribel has so much to offer; from excellent beginner skiing in the Altiport area to the tough moguls of Bosses and some excellent off-piste for the adventurous, Meribel has it all. And you are right at the heart of The Three Valleys ski area with access to Courchevel and Val Thorens in minutes.
We work in partnership with the best ski hire stockists in Meribel. We have done the research and we know which shops stock the latest kit and offer the best value for money. We ensure that all of our recommended retailers offer several options for budget and skill set. With English-speaking staff, you're sure to walk away with exactly what you want. We can also arrange for a handy drop-off/pick up service.
Getting the right ski school and instructor can be the key to a successful week, with years of experience with all kinds of guests, we know which ski schools to recommend for every level, so you can make the most of your time on the snow. On top of that, our drivers will ensure that you get to them with ease.
Our log-in personalised booking pages can be accessed by all members of your party to take the pain out of paying, organising transfers, your ski hire and passes. Whether you are looking to fill a chalet with your own friends or family or are looking to join in the communal, lively atmosphere of a shared chalet, we can help find the perfect accommodation for you.
