So strap on the blades and get ready to hit the slick stuff.
Soak out the day’s kinks and get ready to hit the mountain again tomorrow: Every Méribel ski holiday requires a little water time to loosen up the joints.

You can also swim and jacuzzi at the Méribel olympic park for a day fee.

So put your skis aside, park your fat bike, hang up your blades and toast your weary hiking feet with a cold beverage…or two.
And mamy many more fun winter activities that will make your heart beat ten to the dozen…on and off the slopes.
