The words “family ski holidays in France” evoke magical moments in a winter wonderland where all the family share activities and laughter. Family ski holidays in Méribel mean spending time together enjoying skiing and tobogganing, tucking into hearty Savoyard dishes such as cheese fondue, raclette and tartiflette, spending après-ski by the fireside or enjoying fun or sport in the Parc Olympique or taking part in the many resort entertainments or celebrating in one of its traditional restaurants. Family ski holidays allow you to be together, sharing special moments and creating wonderful memories.
Come and discover family-friendly skiing in France. Skiing is the ideal activity to share together as a family; even with different ability levels, it is a real family-building experience. The better skiers teach the others; you wait for each other, you tease each other, have fun together and, in doing so, strengthen the family bonds. Méribel offers family-friendly skiing in a resort where everything is done to ensure children and their parents enjoy an unforgettable experience.
You can choose to ski together all day or spend half the day in ski school or with a private instructor and the rest of the day skiing or sharing other activities together as a family. Everything is possible in Méribel!
Méribel is a ski resort perfectly adapted to families. Its large and varied ski area offers you many advantages:
- Its vast area and wide choice of routes and slopes for all ability levels means it suits all families, giving them safe skiing and maximum enjoyment.
- Themed slopes, fun zones and snowparks for all ages where you can have fun with your family
- Lounge areas, picnic areas, restaurants and sun terraces for snack breaks before you head back onto the slopes

Family chalet holidays
Méribel is the chalet resort par excellence, perfect for a holiday in a home-from-home which gives you total autonomy. Many chalets are a little out of the way or in the hamlets and villages of the resort, which makes it ideal if the children and all members of the family can take the free buses whenever they fancy.
Rent a private apartment for an easy family holiday and complete freedom
Méribel offers a huge range of rental apartments of all types and in varied locations: from studios to 5-room apartments, including those that are ski-in/ski-out or very close to the slopes, ski lifts or bus stop.
Family holiday in a tourist residence: comfort and tranquillity
Méribel offers several tourist residences located in the resort’s three main villages, Mottaret, Méribel and Méribel Village. All of them are either ski in/ski out or very close to the slopes, and offer numerous services to make your holidays easier.

LESSONS, SKI SCHOOLS, NURSERIES AND KINDERGARTENS
Learn skiing in safety while having fun:
Group and private ski lessons for children and adults are held in the morning, afternoon and over lunchtime. With professional tuition, every member of the family can learn at a pace suited to their level while having fun with others of the same age.
