Our Friends in Meribel
Meribel is famous for its amazing ski chalet holidays and - as well as offering luxury ski breaks ourselves - we are lucky to have lots of great friends who provide winter chalet holiday accommodation and various other services in Meribel, too. Meribel is a popular ski resort and is situated near the town of Moutiers in the Tarentaise Valley. Established in the 1930s by Scotsman Col. Peter Lindsay, Meribel provided a picturesque setting for the 1992 Winter Olympics. At the heart of the famous Three Valleys, Meribel boasts access to the ski area's 180 lifts, 335 mark runs (600km+) and in excess of 130km of x-country tracks. Meribel is every skier's paradise. Of course, for many holidaymakers seeking a well-deserved winter break, the chalet itself has become as much a part of the ski holiday as the time they spend on the piste. After a long day skiing throughout the Three Valleys, few sights can be more welcoming than the glowing fire of a luxury Alpine chalet. Sleeping parties up to 18 or more in number, Meribel chalets are perfect for families and groups of friends who enjoy good food, good company and all the relaxation that comes with a week with your nearest and dearest in a luxury Meribel chalet. Here are some of our favourites.
Chalet food is a subject very close to our hearts, as you can probably tell by our own name, Delicious Mountain. And it goes without say that, if you're looking for the kind of ski holiday which leaves you boasting as much about the chalet food as about the Three-Valleys skiing, you should definitely go for a catered chalet holiday in Meribel's top-ranked chalet. But if you've decided to go self-catered this year, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy great chalet catering or that you have to spend your ski holiday slaving in the kitchen. Chalet Kitchen are a chalet food delivery service, based in Meribel, which brings restaurant-quality food right to your chalet door.
If you are looking for self-catered apartments in Meribel this winter, Chalet Kitchen have a useful list of them on their website.
Three Valley Massage
It's not just her lifelong passion for winter sports which makes our good friend Dorota at Three Valley Massage so well placed to offer her range of Alpine Recuperation Therapies, she is also a fully qualified message therapist and has a Masters Degree in Physical Education. Aiming to help every skier get the most out of their Meribel holiday, Dorota visits guests in the comfort of their own chalet to offer them a range of sports massage and relaxation therapy treatments. Whether it's a relaxing back massage, or a targeted injury-specific treatment, the right massage therapy can get you back in the right physical and mental state to take on the next set of challenges on the slopes the next morning. View Dorota's website to find out more about the range of treatments available.

The Boot Lab
The Boot Lab, Meribel
Especially for more experienced skiers, the right boots can be even more important than the right skis, and once you get used to having the right fit for your boots, you will never want to use anything else. The right fit will enable you to get the right performance on the slopes and while, to begin with, staying upright might be the biggest challenge, as you prgress you will really feel the difference with a great set of well-fitted boots. The boot lab are specialist boot fitters based in Meribel. Staff are friendly, experienced and - of course - qualified. The right people and the right experience guarantee the right fit for your ski boots this winter. Look them up to arrange your one-to-one consultation in resort.

Darn Tough Ski Socks
Our friend, John McQuade, has been an avid ski fan for over twenty years and has always understood the importance of comfort in getting a great day's skiing out on the slopes. Nowhere is this more strongly felt than on your feet - just think about how much we spend on our ski boots with precisely this in mind! And where's the sense in spending all that money on the most comfortable boots if you're socks aren't right? Darn tough socks are designed with skiing in mind and, if you're buying them in the UK, John McQuade and his McKewz website are the only place to go.
