Brides les Bains Resort Details

Brides Les Bains will appeal to those looking to ski on a budget in the famous Three Valleys Ski area. In 1992 when Meribel hosted the winter games this is where the competitors were accommodated and when the Olympic gondola was installed to whisk competitors up to the base at Meribel. This gondola takes around 25 minutes to reach Meribel and saves a long and winding drive up the valley so is the best way to reach the slopes.

Brides Les Bains is a spa town and has a good selection of hotels and a more limited selection of apartments.

The lift back from Meribel to Brides Les Bains close too early at 5pm but when the conditions are good it’s possible to ski off piste back down to the mid station at the end of the day (when conditions are excellent it’s possible to ski off piste all the way down if you feel inclined!)

Après ski in Brides Les Bains

The Night Life is distinctly quiet. Most of the evenings entertainment occurs in the many hotels. There are a few local bars and restaurants and the town has a Casino in case you are feeling lucky.
