 My first climb


A 2 hour lesson in basic touring techniques, on a designated run. 

You have heard about it, you have been assured that it is fantastic, but you have never taken that first step? Now is the time to try touring! Join a group of enthusiasts and benefit from the experience of the Meribel guides bureau. They will give you all that you need to know to immediately enjoy this sport that is attracting more and more people. You will find that it is a very pleasant way to stay in shape, and to get off the beaten path (without necessarily leaving the ski area).

Meribel, a leader in the sport, has created two pistes exclusively for touring. Everything has been done to make it easy. Notably we have partnered with two sport shops that will rent you modern, light equipment (a “detail” that really makes the difference in this sport!).

In less than 2 hours, you will already have a taste for ski touring, and you will certainly return for more!

Activity every Monday from 04/02/2019 to 15/04/2019 from 5pm to 7pm.

Guaranteed departure from 2 persons.

Ski touring group outing


I would like to try off-piste and touring but I would like a “little” walking and a “lot” of skiing (30mn to  1h hikking) !

The 3 Valleys offers a vast playground of on-piste skiing, but there are also many remote areas that can only be reached by ski touring. From the top of the lifts, we leave the pistes behind and stick on our skins to explore further. 30 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes of moderate effort are enough to reach fabulous, calm and remote areas where we can make tracks at our own rhythm, far from the agitation of the pistes.

This formula is intended for skiers with an ability of class 3 and above who want to try touring, or those who have some experience but who would like to join a group to share their enthusiasm and learn more. This group outing is organised by the Meribel bureau des guides every Wednesday and Friday for 3 participants or more. To ensure the best service, we limit the groups to 6 persons per guide. You can easily rent modern touring gear in Meribel (wide touring skis + skins + knives). Tell us in advance if we need to provide safety equipment.

In practice : We will meet at 9:15 am at the Chaudanne where we will check safety equipment (Beacon, shovel, probe), which the guide can supply if you do not have it all. Depending on the snow and weather conditions, the guide will choose the best sector to explore to ensure that this tour will be a success. In the early afternoon a picnic, or a quick meal in a restaurant, will provide a well-earned pause. The return to Meribel will be more relaxed, on or off-piste, depending on the state of the troops. We should arrive back at Meribel around 4:00 to 4:30 pm.

Every Wednesday and Friday from 09h30 am to 4h30 pm

Guaranteed departure from 3 persons, or 2 pers with overcost.

Ski level required : off-piste experience mandatory

The Mythics


I’ll treat myself to a day with a guide to ski the classic routes.

You are on top form! Conditions are good. All lights are green! It is the moment to head to the Grand Perron des Encombres to make big turns on the north face. Or climb to the summit of the aiguille de Peclet by the glacier and descend the west face that overlooks Val Thorens. Perhaps even the canyon couloirs of the fenêtre de Portetta which allow access to Pralognan, while admiring the sublime view of the Grande Casse and the Aiguille de la Vanoise. Easier to access, the sunny slopes that descend to Modane might be good… And there are many other fabulous descents accessible from the 3 Valleys and the surrounding resorts.

The group will be limited to 3 persons per guide for these routes.

Every Wednesday from 9h00 am to 4h30 pm

Ski level required : advanced to expert skier, off pist experience required.
