Courchevel and Meribel revamp ‘mini’ lift passes

20th June 2009, by Chris Gill

In a revamp of their half-day and novice ski passes, Courchevel and Méribel plan to introduce three-hour lift passes next winter.

A three hour, non-consecutive lift pass will be available for the Méribel-Mottaret valley next winter. This will enable visitors to ski a half day, but with the advantage of doing it when they choose rather than restricted to a fixed half-day rate.  The new pass replaces the half-day morning pass, although the Three Valley’s (whole area) version of this will still be available. The afternoon-only pass will also be maintained.  Courchevel also plans to offer a three-hour pass - again restricted to the local valley.

Novices in Courchevel will benefit from an improved pass too - the recently introduced ‘Minipass’ is being extended to cover ten lifts, rather than the previous eight. This pass is useful as it allows novices to enjoy local slopes at a reduced rate - last season it cost 16 euros for a full day. The addition of two lifts (the Ariondaz gondola and Petite Bosse draglift) incorporates Courchevel 1650 into the scheme.  This doesn’t mean that complete beginners will have to pay… the resort still has eight free lifts.
