Meribel – My First Time
On Monday the 2nd I arrived in Meribel for the first time, I have come on an Alpine Action trip to experience the area and take an inside view on how the chalets work and what their hosts get up to…
When I first drove up the mountain I could already tell how beautiful Meribel was, the views are absolutely amazing! During my time in Meribel I have visited all the Alpine Action chalets and learnt all their different qualities. They range from hot tubs and saunas, to indoor tennis tables and games rooms!
The chalets are all extremely beautiful was huge windows and amazing views, these chalets allow the guests to experience the area whilst indoors and out! All our chalets are filled with brilliant hosts with great personalities and in my time here I’ve come across a lot of humour and had a great laugh!
I skied in Meribel during my time here and the slopes were fantastic! I’m lucky enough to have skied before the season officially starts which meant I practically had the slopes to myself! I had a lesson with Parallel Lines in the morning which was so helpful in working on my technique and I had fun whilst doing so.
I stopped for lunch at the bottom of the mountain where I found a range of bars with great food which set me off for the rest of my afternoon skiing.
I carried on skiing with some of the hosts and saw amazing views from the tops of the mountains and had a brilliant afternoon on the slopes, a highlight of my week!
I also hired my skis and boots from ‘The North Face’ who were so helpful and quick when sorting out my rental and set me up for a great day on the slopes.
I have also spent some of my time in La Tania, visiting the chalets and the town, this is a place where everyone knows everyone. I went for dinner and drinks at ‘Le Ski Lodge’ in La Tania and had some lovely food and a great night out, with a live band. It was a brilliant atmosphere and every where I looked was smiles. I have loved my time here and I have felt very welcome throughout my stay.
I’ve seen these hosts go through very thorough training over the past week and spent my time here in spotless chalets tasting delicious trial meals!
They have all been working so hard and the company have done a brilliant job in preparing them in every way for when the first guests of the season to arrive.
When I came to Meribel I wasn’t sure what to expect but I have been amazed with what I have seen and the time I have had here and would definitely recommend an Alpine Action chalet holiday in either of these towns to anyone!
I would love to come back to Meribel and La Tania and stay in an Alpine Action chalet. There are so many things I haven’t had time to do but if I did I would visit the ice rink and swimming pool, watch an ice hockey match! There are so many things to do in Meribel and La Tania and a great time to be had, amazing views to see and amazing slopes to ski!
I’m flying back to the UK tomorrow but I am very jealous of all the seasonnaires staying out here for this season and I know all the guests are going to have amazing time too!
