Things to do in Meribel!
SnoEscape was first started in the Winter of 2003 by a group of experienced Alpine seasonaires that felt something was just, well how can we put it, missing in the French Alps.
Despite the Alps being one of the most beautiful places known to man, there simply wasn't the infrastructure in place to deal with the Brits and the rest of the World coming in to the area with all their demands. Skiers were inspired by the natural beauty but wanted to get a bit more involved in their holiday - to push the boat out, if you will. This is where we came in. Around 120 million tourists came to the Alps in 2006 to enjoy the skiing, snowboarding and cycling but a growing number of these were also looking to do something a little different.
Meribel is the central of three large glacial valleys adjacent to one another in the Savoie region in the South of France. Courchevel, Meribel & Val Thorens (Les Trois Vallées) together make up the largest and busiest ski resort in the World.

We did the dog-sledding with SnoEscape and were very impressed - it was an amazing day out. Everything was organised impeccably and we were well looked after from start to finish. We are keen dog enthusiasts anyway and enjoyed the chance to spend the time outdoors with them. A+
My wife and I first heard of SnoEscape from a friend back in the UK and after having made the initial call to the team and we were looked after. We were fully explained everything and had all of our initial concerns put to rest. We weren't sure if we were up to the challenge to start with but in the end we had a superb day. I would definitely recommend to all of my friends back in Lincoln.
