Mottaret Ski Resort Guide
Snowboarding in ski resort Meribel Mottaret
Meribel and Mottaret have long be the favoured choice for snow boarders of all levels. Head for Mont Vallon for good steep off piste routes, some of our boarding clients have warned others from taking the Ours Blue back down to Mottaret from Mont Vallon which is very hard work in some flat sections. Most of lifts are chairs or Gondolas, and the few drags are easy to avoid.
Après ski in Meribel Mottaret
The night life in Mottaret kicks off as the lifts start to close with the bars around the bottom of the slopes getting very lively. We particularly recommend the Zig-Zag and Downtown. Later on there are a few discos which stay open late. Taxis do run between Meribel and Mottaret late at night but although it’s only a short distance between the two the charges are higher than you would expect, about €20 each way! It ‘s worth the cost as in Meribel the night life rocks until the wee small hours.

The best activities for non skiers are located in Meribel centre reached by bus and taking about 5 to 7 minutes if you don’t fancy walking. Here you will have full use of the Olympic centre with pool and bowling lanes. In Mottaret itself off slope activities are limited however there is a cinema showing English sub titled films.
