A popular ski season choice, Méribel offers up awesome skiing thanks to it being in the centre of the Trois Vallées. But we’re not here to talk about the skiing, we’re here to talk nothin’ but par-taaay, and Méribel is definitely home to some of the best après ski in Europe. The party gets going several hundred metres up the mountain at La Folie Douce, a Val d’Isère institution that kicks off daily at 3pm with DJs, singers and dancers to entertain the crowds.
A little further down the mountain at 1,650m Rond Point is another popular choice amongst the slightly more sophisticated crowd, where live music gets going from around 5pm. If it’s after hours action you’re after, you won’t be short of options – Jack’s, Doron pub and O’Sullivans (Irish, of course) keep the party going to the wee hours.
