Summer and winter, Méribel is the most famous ski resort of the Three Valleys, and dare we say, of France and even of the world! With its breathtaking mountain scenery, its traditional villages and hamlets and its huge ski area, it offers a thousand and one things to do, including flying activities. In fact, it is the ideal ski resort for paragliding on skis, an activity to try, even during the coldest months of the year. Let us convince you...
Méribel : an exceptional ski resort and extraordinary landscapes
Nestled in the heart of the Tarentaise Valley in Savoie, Méribel has enjoyed international renown since the 1992 Winter Olympics. But there is no chance: here, the development of tourist activity has not encroached on the environment. The natural landscapes have therefore remained preserved, without infrastructures to spoil the whole.
The result, seen from the sky, is breathtaking. Forests, massifs and lakes dominate, but it is not rare to see many birds, sometimes eagles, but also hinds, chamois or even ibexes!
Skiing and paragliding : another view of Méribel
Paragliding in Méribel is a real pleasure, any time of the year! The 360° view of the surrounding massifs is simply magical, but it is even more so during the winter season.
Yes, it is possible to paraglide in winter! But for that, you will have to put on your skis in order to take off smoothly from the slopes... On the program: an incredible panorama on the resort, strong sensations and images that will remain engraved in your memory.
Paragliding experience in Méribel: a flight accessible to all
A paragliding flight in the mountains during good weather, everyone knows the principle! One runs and one launches out in the emptiness all gently. But then, how does it go in the heart of winter?
Nothing could be simpler! Takeoff and landing are done on skis (or snowboard). Don't worry, you don't need to have unhooked your Chamois d'or to take off. Our state-qualified instructors have it all under control: all you have to do is glide. Then it's off to take off, with a view of Mont Blanc if conditions permit! Returning to land is as simple as taking off. So simple that even children (from 5 years old) can try this extraordinary paragliding experience in Méribel!
So, if you are looking for an original activity to do in Méribel, why not let yourself be tempted by paragliding?
