What’s on in Meribel and La Tania – January 2015
There are always great things going on in the resorts of La Tania and Meribel. You will find that there are great bands and promo nights on all the time. Your chalet host and our resort reps will be able to tell you what is going on every day. However there are some great events on in January you may not want to miss. Here is a list of events in January that are worth looking at.
5th to 8th January – Inuit Adventures
The Meribel Altiport area has gone all Arctic this season! It is holding a variety of free events that will make you feel as if you are a real Inuit. The main attraction is ice fishing. For more information click here!
6th January – Russian Christmas
A large number of Russians are now holiday in the Three Valleys, we even have quite a few come and stay in our Alpine Action Chalets. This is great news for Christmas lovers as the Russians don’t get round to celebrating it until the 6th of January and it is well and truly embraced in Meribel!
17th January – Moguls Competition
Want to feel inferior about your technique and ability to tackle small bumps on the piste? Then head up to Motteret and watch the French Freestyle Mogul Cup. It is even more impressive than watching it on the telly. Find out more.
18th January – Colour me Rad
We spotted this event thanks to Merinet. It is a charity fun run where you get a variety of colours thrown at you as you run. Start out in a white running kit and finish in either a vibrant rainbow of color or a sort of brown purple. It is only 5km up the mountain and there is a party at the end! Go on have a go!
20th Jan Meribel v’s Courchevel Hockey
During the season there are quite a few Hockey matches but this is a big one, Courchevel against Meribel. This is quite a grudge match, I remember watching these two battle it out at the Courchevel rink a few years back and it was brutally exciting. I didn’t really understand what was going on but but it was exciting none the less. This event is held in at the Meribel Olympic Ice Rink and is only €5 per adult.
Jan 26th – Australia Day
It seems that it isn’t only the Russians that have brought their traditions to the Alps, the Australians have too. Expect drunken people called Tad and Jason to running around bars drinking Fosters dancing to Men At Work covers and wearing beanie hats with chalet wine corks hanging from them.
