- Trails – 3 Valleys France
There’s some cracking trails in the Meribel valley, the Super Enduro from just below the Saulire lift is one I can name and the marked bike runs on the other side are ace too if you can handle DH stuff. I’d give the Courchevel valley a miss, though – doesn’t compare imho.Posted 8 months agochrismacMember
Off to Meribel at the weekend for a week of riding. We have the trail map downloaded. Does the combined experience of STW have any recommendations of trails not to be missed, or best avoided?
We are taking 150mm trail bikes and using the lifts but not averse to some climbing.
Thanks in advance

Went to Meribel (les allues actually) on trail bikes a few years ago (maybe 2012, can’t remember). The bike park (if you can call it that) was very basic and nothing compared to PDS, Les Arcs etc etc. But there was a lot of very fun secret stuff to be had, not at all obvious without proper maps and or guidance.
I’m sure they’ve improved the riding in the resort, but it may be worth getting a guide, if only for a day to sniff out the best hors pistes.Posted 8 months agochevychaseMember
Plenty in Meribel but I really loved the woods in Courchevel – there’s some really techie stuff that’s not on the official maps that drops out into Le Praz and some stuff out of range of the ski lifts (bus back up) which goes right down to the lake at bozel.
