Great for family groups

There are many important things to remember when considering taking your children on a skiing holiday.

Our Ski Blanc Chalet Holidays in Meribel really suit family groups.
The spacious living areas lend themselves to spending time together or apart, as the mood takes you. Imagine yourself relaxing in the terrace hot tub whilst the children have plenty of room to play inside. A convenient location is essential when skiing with children. Our chalets are situated just minutes from the bubble lift. This takes you straight to the heart of the three valleys ski area.
Ski lockers are available at the foot of the ski slopes. You don’t even have to carry the children’s skis. Plus, the extra bonus of boot driers will give you nice warm feet each morning - particularly important for tiny toes.

Food - Can you be sure they will be happy with the chalet food?

We understand how crucial it is to have the right food for your family on a skiing holiday. Little people can have extraordinarily large appetites after a day out in the mountains. Let us know in advance what type of meals your children prefer. You can choose to have an earlier family friendly dinner all together, or a separate tea-time for the children and dinner for the adults later. Simply let us know what will suit your family best.

Is Meribel a child-friendly ski resort?

Meribel is a great destination for family ski holidays and has been 'awarded' family friendly status.
The beautiful Altiport beginners’ area has plenty of generous, easy green runs. You can also enjoy some of the most impressive views in the valley. The beginners park has areas designed specifically to entertain children. For example, they can follow the Piste Animal, a forest trail on skis. Watch their delight as they discover life-size examples of local wildlife from the Alpine Squirrel Écureuil to the Golden Eagle Aigle.

Ski Lessons in Meribel, Three Valleys, France - How to decide ski school to trust?

One of the best things about staying in Meribel with children are the brilliant British Ski Schools. We wholeheartedly recommend our two favourites Oxygene and Parallel Lines. Every season, Ski Blanc’s smaller guests rave about adventures they have enjoyed with their instructors. Parents are thrilled with their little ones progress in just one week! The medal on the last day is just the cherry on the cake.

Activities - How will you keep your little ones entertained?

For après-ski activities, Meribel is second to none. The Olympic centre has superb facilities including a heated pool with a special area for toddlers and a water slide for children over 6. The Ice Skating rink is open each afternoon. They have little trolleys to help little tots stay on their feet and music to entertain older children. The busy bowling alley has a lively atmosphere for family contests, and all the amusement delights from air hockey to bike simulators. During the school holiday weeks seasonal events are organised by the resort. Santa visits on Christmas Eve to the sound of the local children singing English and French carols. There are Fireworks for New Year, and Torch Lit descents from the ski instructors with plenty of mulled wine to keep off the chill. When the weather warms up later in the season, you and the children can choose from several Live Music venues on the Sunny Terraces of Meribel Centre. Our shuttle bus service makes getting home after your activities a breeze.

Childcare - What is on offer?

The right childcare is an important consideration especially if you are travelling with a baby or toddler who is too young for ski school. Many Ski Blanc guests take advantage of our large ski chalets to holiday with another family or their own extended family, splitting ski time and childcare within the party. However, Meribel has several companies that specialise in the British market for Private Nannies. There is also a Meribel crèche situated right at the bottom of the ski slopes. Their facilities are ideal with plenty of room for indoor activities and a ‘snow garden’ to enjoy as well.

  • We were delighted with all aspects of our holiday in Chalet Les Sauges. Accommodation was first class and the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were superb. The food was of the highest quality and the variety and quality was maintained throughout the week. All credit to Jamie and Natalia.

  • Lovely chalet and fantastic location – just a minute to the main lift . Wonderful area to ski – we have been to Meribel quite a few times now and it never disappoints. Food delicious and facilities very good.

  • We all had an excellent time in Chalet Foehn. It was lovely; cosy, homely and providing everything we needed. The resort was great. This was my first visit to Meribel and I'm impressed with the number and variety of the runs available over the three valleys. We managed to ski everyday albeit not quite all day every day. Particularly; I'd like to thank Jesse and Fiona, our hosts. They both looked after us brilliantly. The food was delicious, the packed lunches just right and the cakes wonderful. I am still shocked how nice vegan brownies can be!

  • I can safely say that all 3 families, had an absolutely fantastic holiday from the time we arrived at the chalet to when we left. From the great customer service, that Janey afforded us while organising the holiday, to the face to face contact with you all while there. We have to make a very special mention to TJ and Abby who made our stay extra special and who were fabulous chalet hosts. They make the perfect team, both friendly and professional, ensuring that each and every one of us was catered for…which is quite a task given we had quite a few dietary requirements! Their food was excellent….the children deciding to eat with us rather than eating a separate menu is testimony to that!
