Time for Summer to arrive

Despite the snow which fell earlier this week as shown above the lifts have closed for the winter season and it's time to start thinking about summer activities. Chalet Vache Bleue is open throughout the inter season period as well as the summer season. This year Meribel is proud to be hosting the Mountain Bike World Cup Finals in August which promises to be a huge event with over 4,000 Athletes representing 9 Countries attending. We will post more information about the event closer to the time.

It's not all about Mountain Bikes during the summer in Meribel there are many other events planned from Flying to Fly Fishing, although of course you don't need to be attending a planned event to simply enjoy the magnificent scenery. The well marked paths and tracks throughout the area from the valley floor to the peaks should not be missed and during the main holiday period the lifts swing back into action to make the trip up a little easier on the legs.

During the summer access to the lifts and a range of other events can be achieved through the purchase of a Meripass. As Partners with Meribel Tourism we are able to off the Meripass at a reduced rate, we will include all the details in our next Post or e-mail us: for more details.

To mark the end of the winter season here is our favourite picture from the season which was taken in Les Allues on 6th February. The 2014/15 winter season will be upon us very soon but don't forget to take advantage of all the Alps during the summer.
