Airport Transfers

On the assumption most of you will not be taking the Lear Jet into Méribel or Courchevel Altiport and then horse-drawn sleigh on from there, you will need an airport transfer to get you to your chalet in Méribel after your bun-fight of a flight out!

We would be delighted to organise this for you from one of the following airports:

– Chambery (109kms/ 1h15m)
– Geneva (136km/ 2h 15m)
– Lyon (178km/ 2h)
– Grenoble (175km/ 2h)

How it works…

Airport transfers can be booked on a private or shared basis.

Private transfers are charged at a set fee per shuttle bus and so only become economical if you have seven or eight passengers. The capacity is generally eight passengers and you will be dropped at the door of your chalet.

Shared transfers are charged on a per person basis. For shared transfers, there are two options. The most cost-effective option is to book with a company that will transport you from the airport to the closest bus-stop to your chalet. The most convenient option is to book with a company that will transport you from the airport to the front door of your chalet although you will, of course, pay a small premium for this service.

Whatever option you choose, The Chalet Company can help…

Three Valleys or Meribel?

Experienced skiers are advised to go for the Three Valleys pass so that they can enjoy the world’s largest ski area without restriction. Intermediate skiers are “the difficult middle child” – the Méribel Valley has some great skiing but it represents only 20% of the total ski area. You can always upgrade the Méribel pass to a Three Valleys pass for € 33 per day. So if you plan to upgrade for more than 1 day, it is more cost effective to buy the six-day Three Valleys pass. Beginner skiers should find sufficient skiing in the Méribel Valley.

The Question of Risk

Your travel insurance policy may or may not cover you for the cost of an emergency rescue. You must check the smallprint of the policy but, if it does not, you can purchase “carte-neige” insurance for € 2.80 (adults) or € 2.40 (children) per day and this will cover the cost of getting you off the mountain and into the hospital should a serious accident occur. Clearly a money-making scheme dreamt up by an insurance company and sold to the resort of Méribel (for a commission, no doubt)…but can you afford to be without it?!

Lessons

Are you dreaming…or does the tanned, muscular red-jacketed professional gliding down the slopes appear to be floating on the wings of an angel? Of course, that is how most ski & snowboard instructors in France felt they were viewed by their doe-eyed public but, today, not all of them are so…”introspective”! They also don’t all wear red.

Are you dreaming…or does the tanned, muscular red-jacketed professional gliding down the slopes appear to be floating on the wings of an angel? Of course, that is how most ski & snowboard instructors in France felt they were viewed by their doe-eyed public but, today, not all of them are so…”introspective”! They also don’t all wear red. The guys we work with are grafters; they have made a lot of sacrifices in their lives to achieve the top qualifications available to ski & snowboard instructors. They are also customer service focussed and so will work tirelessly to ensure you have a fantastic time whilst in their care. And, finally, most of them are Scottish and so can boast barely a shade of a tan between them!

Parallel Lines. A Popular Choice!  You will find their team of British instructors friendly, patient and professional. This ski school has a real focus on families, offering their superb children’s courses throughout the season. For adults, there are group and private lessons available for both skiing & snowboarding. They also specialise in off-piste courses and have their personal take on heli-skiing, right here in the Three Valleys – an experience to remember!

All lessons are in English and the groups are small. This is a very personal ski school which comes highly recommended by our guests.  Furthermore, their friendly booking team will be able to help with information and advice.  For more information check out their website – Parallel Lines Ski & Board School

Sweet Snowsports. Sweet Snowsports are a small, flexible team of fully-qualified, native English speaking ski instructors who operate in Courchevel, Meribel and La Tania.

We offer a full range of well thought out ski lessons including private, children’s and group sessions all of which have been designed around the needs of our customers. Little details such as complimentary refreshments in our Children’s lessons or market leading class sizes (1:5 Adults & 1:6 Children) all combine to make our ski school a little bit more personal. All of our instructors have spent many seasons skiing in the Three Valleys and have great
knowledge of the ski area, restaurants and everything else that encompasses a good skiing holiday.

Our team of instructors are all great fun and motivated by delivering a fantastic service. Every one of our clients is given the chance to review their session online via a 3rd part company called Feefo; we have no ability to influence this feedback other than by delivering great sessions. You can see what out clients have to say about us here: www.feefo.com/reviews/Sweet-Snowsports/?id=170964&mode=service
