The Skiing

The Three Valleys is without doubt the largest and finest linked ski area in the world. The area is naturally blessed with good snow falls and, along with 1,200 snow cannons, skiing is virtually assured from Christmas through to the beginning of May.

The ski area is truly inexhaustible and with 600km of pistes in the Three Valleys (150km in Méribel), there is something for every standard of skier. The valleys are superbly linked, with Val Thorens under an hour away and Courchevel even closer. So whether you are looking for beautifully groomed pistes, bumps, steeps, or out of the way off-piste runs you will find it in the Trois Vallées.

In Méribel, try the Ladies Olympic Downhill, or the exhilarating runs from the top of Saulire all the way down to Méribel, a vertical drop of 1,300 metres. Then there is Mont Vallon, with its two fabulous sweeping red runs and amazingly varied off-piste.

Courchevel has miles of wonderful cruising runs, beautiful pistes through the trees to Le Praz and La Tania, the gentle runs of 1600, as well as the Saulire Couloirs, Suisse and Chanrossa, which will challenge even the most expert skier.

The Vallée des Belleville offers some excitingly different terrain. On La Masse and in the Fourth Valley there are some great runs both on and off piste. Click here for piste maps of The Three Valleys.

Snowboarders – Boarding is very popular in Méribel and is very well catered for in the valley, with many board parks and huge amounts of off piste.

Ski Lessons and Guiding – Everybody can benefit from ski lessons, beginner and expert alike. And a ski guide can really help you make the best of your time on the mountain, whether on piste or off! Méribel is blessed with a wide choice of superb schools – for more details see our ski lessons page.

Lift Pass Prices – For details of lift pass prices please visit the lift pass prices section.

Ski Lessons

We strongly recommend that you book your ski lessons / guides as soon as possible after booking your holiday to avoid disappointment.

Please note that Purple Ski is not itself a ski school.

This page gives a description of companies providing ski and snowboarding lessons, also private guides in Méribel and links to pages which summarise the hours and prices for both group and private lessons for the 2014-2015 season.

We are fortunate that Méribel is blessed with several excellent ski and snowboarding schools; we have worked with all the schools listed here and always with excellent results, so have confidence in recommending them to you.

We would be happy to provide advice to all our clients regarding ski lessons and help with making advance bookings; Karen has an intimate knowledge of all the ski schools and lesson options, so please contact her on skilessons@purpleski.com . Alternatively, you may book these lessons directly with the provider (web links and contact details are given below). NOTE: lessons within 2 weeks of your holiday start date should be booked directly by yourself.

For a chart summarising the types and prices of group lessons offered, click here, and for private lessons click here.

Please note that by booking lessons via Purple Ski you agree to the Purple Ski ski lesson reservation terms and conditions, which can be found here

Please book your ski lessons at the earliest possible time to avoid your required lesson being unavailable. This is important for all weeks of the season but particularly at New Year and February half term. Morning sessions tend to be the most popular, so tend to be sold out first.

Please note that even if a lesson is listed here it does not mean it will be available at your particular week, level, discipline or location. All details are subject to change without notice.

NOTE: Helmets are required for all childrens’ lessons – and are recommended for adults too!

Established in 1992, Magic in Motion is an independent and very popular ski school owned and run by an Anglo-French team, and offers private and group ski and snowboarding lessons, mixing fun and technique. Their team is a mix of British and French instructors (and a couple of more exotic nationalities!) – but they guarantee English speaking instructors and small group sizes. Approximately one third of the team are native English speakers and all have been chosen for their teaching, motivational and communication skills (rather than just their skiing, which goes without saying!).

Their lesson options are, in our view, very well structured, including group lessons for little ones (aged 4-6 years) for 2 hours per day (x 5 days), but also a the very popular “Kids Fun Factory” option for older children which includes 3 x 4hr mornings plus 2 full days skiing, including supervised lunches on the 2 full days, plus games and medals on the final day. And for adults, beginners group lessons have a 4 hour first day (to get you going) plus a 4 hour last day for all levels (2 hours per day in between). They also offer guiding for advanced skiers and boarders – great for those who want to try something different but can’t necessarily afford a private guide for the day.

The meeting point for lessons in Méribel is at the bottom of the “Truite” green run so for all but total beginners is accessible for guests staying in Mottaret as well.

For bookings click here.

New Generation is a small, independent ski school, founded in 1998 by 4 British ski instructors, that we have worked with very successfully for several seasons.

They have just 8 instructors based in Méribel (another c.20 based in Courchevel); all are selected based on their excellent coaching skills, most are British – but all speak very good English (so can make analogies and explanations that you can more easily understand, encourage questions and discussion to help you progress faster and hopefully have more fun). Their focus is on “coaching” rather than “instruction”). Their instructors base lessons on the key principles of all learning – a combination of doing, watching, thinking, listening and feeling. All their instructors hold the BASI International Ski Teacher Diploma, membership of the International Ski Instructors Association and full entitlement to teach in France.

They run group and private lessons for skiers and snowboarders and, as well as the “usual” 5 day x 2 hour group lessons, they run 2 day specialist “clinics” (group lessons) for adults and teenagers who just want a few hours coaching. Their lessons for children aged 6-12 run for the full morning.

Their meeting point is at the bottom of the Rhodos bubble at the Chaudanne. Their instructors will be wearing bright orange jackets this season!

The ESF is the biggest ski lesson operator in Méribel, offering group and private ski, snowboarding and cross country lessons, among others. They have some 400 alpine and 10 cross country ski instructors.

Our past experience of group lessons offered by the ESF in both Méribel and Mottaret has not been great (issues mainly with language and/or excessively large group sizes – especially at peak periods). However they have some excellent private instructors and guides and we would recommend them for private lessons. If you wish to book group lessons with the ESF please book direct (click here); we are happy to help book private instructors.

The ESF also operates a creche for children aged 18 months to 3 years (Les Saturnins – Méribel only) and a kindergarten (Les Pt’t Loups) for children aged 3 years to 5 years. Here, the children can play and try skiing for the first time in the large, enclosed snow field with inflatable figures, snowmen and a ski tow, or play and rest indoors in the air-conditioned “chalet” complete with toys, books, videos and a rest area. Proof of age required for both.

E-mail: info@cab9snowboarding.com

Cab9 Snowboarding is a small team of British snowboard instructors which has been operating since 2006 and is run by Paul Coleman and Jono Stevens, who have many years of snowboard teaching experience behind them.

In contrast to much of the snowboard instruction available in resort, the instructors are dedicated snowboarders, rather than ski instructors who teach snowboarding. They offer lessons for all abilities, from complete beginners to expert riders. They are keen to point out that Cab9 instructors are able to teach to a very high standard – they are qualified to guide clients off-piste, and are also trained to teach freestyle in the park and pipe.

They offer 5 day group lessons, expert sessions. private lessons and freestyle group sessions.

All lessons meet at the bottom of the RHODOS lift in Méribel.

They work in conjunction with Parallel Lines and so details of snowboarding lessons with Cab9, including 2015-2016 prices is as per Parallel Lines at: here for group lessons and here for private lessons.

Craig Conkie and Martin Jeffers, two ex-ESF instructors who have been in Méribel for many years, are part of an association called BASS, the British Alpine Ski and Snowboard School. Craig and Martin will be available throughout the season, with other British instructors joining them for busy periods.

All BASS instructors are, at a minimum, of BASI 1 grade, and also have completed their Eurotest (with French equivalence), making them among the highest qualified British instructors available anywhere.

They run mainly private lessons in Méribel, but during busy periods may also be able to offer ski groups for juniors and adults.

They are flexible in the way they set up lessons, meaning that they can often tailor lessons to suit certain parties. If a group has something particular in mind with regards to their ski lessons, they would try to accommodate their wishes if possible.

Marmalade has a team of 8 great young (ish!), fully qualified, ski instructors and off piste guides. Six are from the UK and two from Italy, but have been teaching in Meribel for 5 years so arevery god at English. All been working in Meribel for many years. Probably the “coolest” of the ski schools, they have – in our view – a more relaxed approach to teaching and definitely know how to enjoy themselves on the mountain. Read the biographies of the instructors on their website and you’ll get an idea of what we mean! Guest feedback about them has been great.

Mountain Guides

Bureau des Guides

Bureau des Guides

Web Site
Tel: +33 (0)4 79 00 30 38 or +33 (0)6 23 92 46 12

The Bureau des Guides are the true specialists in off-piste skiing, ski touring and heli-skiing. The guides offer their experience and knowledge of all the best places and hidden spots of the Three Valleys - they know the area better than anyone else - where to find good snow and safe meeting points and are the only ones allowed to take groups or individuals skiing on the glaciers. The guides are in regular radio contact with each other and share information across the ski area every day.

Please note that these high mountain guides are guides, not instructors. They do not teach

You can either join one of their courses (max 6 people per group) - they offer introductory courses for those new to off piste skiing (your standard is assessed and your guide will take you to places within your capability to practise and improve your technique in a fun and safe environment) or take more advanced skiers on longer expeditions to discover untouched snow and unforgettable descents (safety equipment is supplied by the guides). They also do heli-skiing (there are around thirty drop points on the Swiss and Italian borders), ice climbing (in Courchevel), ski touring (starting with an off-piste descent from a ski lift and then fit skins to your skis, which enable you to access a glacier or valley well away from the main resort) and more....

For more information, or to make a booking, please visit our website www.guides-courchevel-meribel.com.

The Bureau des Guides offers the following:

Off Piste

If you want to use the ski lifts to reach the untouched areas of the Three Valleys and ride down the finest off-piste routes, if you love linking perfect curves in untouched snowfields, then your high mountain guide is the expert companion who can bring together safety, discovery and your enjoyment.

Ski Touring and Splitboard

From the ski lifts of the Three Valleys you can reach the vastness of the snow covered alpine pastures and glaciers in the Vanoise National Park amidst breath-taking surroundings. By using "touring skis" or a "splitboard", with moderate and ergonomic effort in the footsteps of your high mountain guide, you will be completely free to enjoy limitess skiing where the snow is at its best.

Heli-skiing

Heli-skiing offers a wonderful way to enjoy the fresh snow. From the Altiport, take a short (c. 15 minutes) and flight and enjoy stunning views to the Italian border and ski back down on virgin slopes with your mountain guide. An unforgettable day.

Discovery Day

Learn about the history and formation of the Three Valleys - you will go on and off piste with your guide and see things that you have never seen before...

Lift Passes

The Three Valley Lift pass system is “hands free”. You simply leave the lift pass in a left hand pocket of your ski suit and the gates automatically open for you. You don’t need to show your lift pass and no photograph is required (except for <5 and >75 years).

To pre-book your lift passes either send us an email with your requirements or else click here and complete the form. We will have your passes ready and waiting for you on your arrival so that you can get straight out onto the slopes without any delay.

Note that family passes represent a significant discount compared with individual passes, see below. Every member of the family pays the child price. To qualify, you must be a family of 2 adults and 2 or more children aged 5 to 17 inclusive, and buy a pass of 6 days or greater duration.

Reduced prices apply for the period up to 20th December and from 19th April; the prices below are for the main part of the season.
