Our eyes and ears in the resort can give you an a prompt and honest report when snow falls - allowing you to keep abreast of the latest information and perhaps sneak a cheeky weekend's skiing in. Over the past years we've found that some of the best snow falls when the resort - and therefore the slopes - are all but empty. These happy occurrences have provided us with some of the best skiing we've ever had - and often come at quiet times in the season when many of the best deals are to be found. By signing up for dump alerts you'll find out about the snow as soon as we do and so get a chance to benefit too!
Please note: the weather station is located in the upper part of the Meribel ski area, at the top of the Tougnete (2434m) altitude at the same place as our Panoramic webcam. The high wind speeds often indicated reflect the fact that the weather station is located on a windy ridge, and the temperatures here are often very much lower than those in the resort or on the lower slopes.

An incredibly complex topic, you could spend a lifetime studying all the different types of climate and weather conditions in the world. Fortunately however, weather is there all the time so practice in “reading” it is easy to do – there is no escape! Whether it is seducing you with its warmth and sunshine or potentially placing you in danger with low cloud and storms, it is an ever present dimension of the outdoor scene and one that without which, the mountains would be a great deal less interesting.
