We had an amazing experience in our catered chalet - the refuge Boua.

Our two chalet hosts Gareth and Josh were fabulous. We were as close to the slopes as you can be, true ski-in ski-out. Great food and a fatastic atmosphere. 

The Magic in Motion ski school were incredibly helpful and kind. We are keen to go again.

Thanks to Toby and the team for organising the best holiday experience possible.

Must see Meribel

Written by Steven a Snowboarder from Sydney

The Les Trois Valley is amazing. We stayed in Meribel , a fun little village in the middle of the valley''s wih easy access to Courchevel and Val Thorens via the very new state of the art lift system.

Skiing and boarding for all levels from beginner to dare devil, and a number of terrain parks for the trixters.

Les Meriyls Hotel is a very warming residence with lovely staff and location location location , with a skiing to your door and a hip Après Bar across road where you can have a dance after a hard day of skiing.

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our trip...
