An epic end to an epic Meribel season
The already-legendary 2018 season is gradually nearing its end in the same way it started: with masses of snow and great conditions.
Vast quantities of snow still lie in our valley. The snow depth at the top of Saulire is a whopping 325cm (10½ foot) with 60cm at the foot of the runs. Le Mont Vallon is as white and smooth as a giant Mr Whippy ice cream, with boulders the size of cars still completely buried under snow. The giant piles of snow in the resort are only now melting, revealing shrubs and small trees that have been crushed under the great weight.
