For a town with under 2000 inhabitants, Meribel has a large number of champions.
Georges Mauduit was World Ski Champion in 1966 is the most famous champion of them all. A long piste even bears his name – “The Mauduit” !
Now 2 inhabitants have been selected to represent France in the upcoming winter Olympics in Pyeonhchang.
Sacha Theocharis has been on skis since the age of 5 years. He soon joined the freestyle section of Meribel Ski Club before joining the France team. He is skiing bumps. Thomas Krief will be skiing halfpipe. Both will be great competitions to watch.
Congratulations to them, and all the coaches, and other support from The Meribel Ski Club. Our facilities are also second to none.
Good luck to both Sacha and Thomas.
For the last 30 years, Jonathan Rose has owned Chalet Le Yeti in Méribel.
Jonathan's knowledge and experience of Meribel and the Trois Vallées ski area is extensive through his own personal experience as a skier and chalet owner.
