Meribel is Cab9 Snowboarding’s HQ. With its privileged location at the heart of the Three Valleys, the largest skiing and snowboarding area in the world, the neighbouring resorts of Courchevel, La Tania, Val Thorens and Les Menuires can all be reached quickly by the modern lift network making Meribel the ideal base from which to explore the vast Trois Vallées.
There’s plenty of varied piste riding ranging from cruisey to challenging. For powder hounds if you know where to go, there are some fantastic easily accessible off piste routes that often take weeks to get fully tracked out. The back of the resort, heading up towards Mont Vallon, provides excellent splitboarding terrain for those who prefer to get away from it all.
If you’re into freestyle Meribel has two main parks, the Moon Park in Meribel and the DC Area 43 park in Mottaret where you’ll often find the Cab9 team riding in their free time. Here there’s a large selection of boxes and rails as well as kickers to suit every level. Newcomers to freestyle will feel just at home here as experienced freestyle riders. There are also loads of fun jibs, a hip and a Super Pipe too. International DC team riders often turn up for photo shoots so you may even get to see your favourite pro-rider hitting the park!
And then there’s the après and nightlife. Some spots where you’ll find the Cab9 team hanging out after a hard day on the slopes include the Rond Point for slope-side après, which can often run well beyond piste closing time and usually leads to an interesting run back to the village to say the least! La Taverne with its pub atmosphere is a well known meeting point due to its central location in Meribel’s main square, with several other bars and clubs just a snowball’s throw away for some late night dance floor moves.
So whether you’re a beginner snowboarder, an advanced rider, or simply looking to have some fun, Meribel has everything you could ask for and is certain not to disappoint. For us, we’re proud to call it Cab9’s home.
