The Ultimate Guide to Upcoming Winter Events in Meribel
Yet again the Three Valleys is enjoying another wonderful winter, with skiing fanatics flying in from all over the world to sample the delights of Meribel. We’ve had some huge events over the last few months, and big snow days that covered the Three Valleys in beautiful, fresh powder. There’s still plenty to see and do during the rest of the winter season, so we’ve compiled our ultimate guide to the best events in Meribel over the coming weeks. Do not miss these!
Black Forest Sledge Adventure
This themed sledge track goes on for an impressive three kilometres, speeding round 28 corners and descending 470metres in total. Available to ride every day of the week (apart from Saturdays), this sledge adventure places you in a world of wizards, goblins and elves. You even get to choose which helmet to wear, allowing you to become one of the characters. A great treat for adults and kids over 12 years of age.
Meet the Huskies
From February 27th to March 3rd you can meet the Huskies in Meribel. Head over to the inuits Piste from 1pm, where Karine will be demonstrating her ‘musher’ job, before you pet the huskies and even have your photo taken with them. This event is free so there’s no excuse to miss seeing these amazing animals!
Family Fun on the Inuits Piste
Every Monday to Friday during the winter season the family can get involved with all kinds of fun activities on the Inuits Piste. Take part in the fishing mysteries, a village fair and even the ‘Trapper Challenge’! This is definitely the place to be if you’re travelling with kids, and entry is completely free.
If you’re after something a bit more adventurous then head over to the Ski Cool beginners area in Meribel Valley, with the chance to try your hand at archery or biathlon. After testing your skills with these sports you can even enjoy a free hot chocolate afterwards. Make sure you get involved on 28th February, 2nd March or 6th March.
Apres Ski at the Ronnie
If live music is your thing then the Ronnie (Rond Point) is definitely the place to be. Every day of the week they have different events and parties going on, so you can get your fix of live entertainment from 5pm until 6-30pm every evening.
‘Thursday Live’ at the Lodge du Village
Carrying on with the live music theme, the Lodge du Village prides itself on hosting the best party every Thursday during the winter season. At 4pm there’s an apres gig, and if you want to party throughout the night then you can attend the 10pm night-time gig.
Piste de L’Himalaya by Night
Every Thursday in March you can enjoy Meribel by night, with a luge, music, marshmallows and hot drinks. One of the highlights of the Meribel winter season, you can enjoy great views of Meribel and Mottaret as you sledge down the green Himalaya run. Kids under 13 can also go for free if they’re accompanied by an adult.
Throne Room Alps Showcase
If you’re into techno then you need to pencil this one into your diary. Throne Room artist Transcode will be headlining this show on 3rd March, with a supporting line-up that includes Oliver Carloni, Liam Armstrong and James Pickford. Make sure you book your tickets as early as possible for this showcase at O’Sullivans nightclub to avoid disappointment.
Toss the Boss at Lodge du Village
Every Sunday from 10pm at the Lodge du Village you can get involved with Toss the Boss. After buying a round the boss rolls a dice, and if your roll beats theirs then you’ll get to enjoy that round for free. Even if you lose then there’s no need to feel down, as you’ll still be in one of Meribel’s favourite pubs!
On the 12th March and 9th April you can take in live music while enjoying steak or fondue at La Taverne. With the delicious food it’s no wonder why this is such a popular event, so make sure you get your reservation in soon before it gets booked up.
As you can see there are plenty of events taking place in the coming weeks, and with more snow set to arrive you can definitely make the most of the rest of winter. Take a look at the availability for our luxury chalets in Meribel and make your booking now.
