Whats on in Meribel and La Tania in February
Oddly nothing worth mentioning is happening in Meribel or La Tania for the first few week of the month. I guess they are just clearing the schedule for a fortnight of non-stop blue skies and fresh snow.
Ibiza Rocks the Snow – 8th February 2014 – Meribel
The second week of boom, boom, boom music carries on in Meribel. If you are under thirty then what we meant was, top international Djs will be spinning the latest beats from the party Island in most of Meribel top nightspots. Go to http://www.ibizarocksthesnow.com/ for a full line-up.
Valentine’s Day – 14th February – The World
If you want to take your partner on the ultimate love ski then make sure you reserve a romantic gondola ride in the evening. From 6.30 pm you and your loved one could be eating a basket of “gourmet” stuff or maybe considering joining the Pylon High club. For more details and to reserve a spot contact the Meribel tourist office.
HALF TERM – 15th Feb to 23rd Feb – UK
Half term, for many, is the only time many will get a ski holiday in. Combine that with the fact that it is also half term for much of Europe and you can imagine that the slopes will be busy. This need not be the case. If ski at times when others will be having a rest and ask your resort staff to recommend the quieter slopes, then you can avoid the masses and get a lot of skiing done.
Ski Touring Night Racing – 17th Feb, 6pm – Meribel Mottaret
Get a feeling of what it might be like in Sochi and watch this Ski Touring event. There will be individual runs and a relay race. Wrap up warm and pack a flask of Vin Chaud.
Jazz Festival – 19th to 21st of Feb – Bride Les Bains
Unless you are staying in Bride Les Bains or a massive Jazz fan then you probably won’t see much of this. But is sounds good fun and makes a change from the usual cover bands that populate the French Alps.
Environment Week – Feb 22nd – La Tania
In true mountain tourist office style, there is little information on this. We are reassured that it is good fun and that the Forest Challenge on the Wednesday is worth getting involved in. They promise lots of prizes too. See in resort for details.
