As you may well know, we love Meribel whatever the time of year but April skiing in Meribel really is something quite special. Why, you ask? Well…

 

April weather

April weather in Meribel be is simply beautiful! The days are long, and the sun is often shining without a cloud in the sky. Perfect for lunch spent basking in the sun, in one of Meribel’s many gorgeous restaurants or picnic spots. Not to mention the bonus of returning from a winter ski holiday, with an enviable summer glow!

Thanks to the longer days, the lifts stay open longer. Giving you more time to enjoy the 600km of piste the Three Valleys has to offer. Each lift station is equipped with a clock and information on exactly what time the lift will be closing so you can make the most of the longer days without a care in the world.

You may hear that a drawback of skiing in April is the lack of snow, however some of our guests have enjoyed some of their very best powder days here in April. Just as in the UK, Meribel experiences April showers but in the form of fresh snow. This coupled with Meribel’s unapparelled snow making facilities, with 2,500 snow cannons covering 50% of the total ski area means, you can rest assured the snow during April has the full potential to be as good at any other time throughout the season.

Top tip: We recommend skiing on the sunny South facing slopes in the morning and moving over to the North facing slopes in the afternoon to make the most of the best conditions throughout the day.

 

Lunch in the sun

Meribel has an abundance of beautiful restaurants with sun trap terraces to enjoy lunch or some light refreshments in the sun.

To name a few…

Le Rond Point

Le Monchu

Adray Telebar
