From gentle beginner slopes to challenging off-piste adventures, Meribel and the surrounding areas offer something for every skill level.

Méribel's distinct chalet-style architecture and charming village atmosphere offer an authentic alpine experience, while the Trois Vallées region, including resorts like Courchevel and Val Thorens, presents an abundance of opportunities for further exploration. An annual snowfall averaging around 500 inches ensures excellent snow quality throughout the season. Meribel also hosts several world-class events, including the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup, which are a testament to the quality of its slopes.

A multi-faced ski area

The Méribel ski area is not only for very experienced skiers. Slopes are very steep and designed for expert skiers as beginners. Whatever your level, your desires or your age, everything has been thought of to make you live an extraordinary adventure, your feet in the snow.

Beginners can explore the ski area on the green and blue slopes, while the more athletic can try their hand at the red and black slopes. Enjoy the challenge slopes with your friends, the family sky area with its playgrounds and toboggan runs and perfect your style in the snowpark. It is also here that you can ski on mythical slopes full of history and emotion, such as the black run the Face, where the women’s events of the 1992 Albertville Olympic Games took place. And for mountain enthusiasts in search of unique sensations who wish to try off-piste skiing, Méribel and Les 3 Vallées offer numerous spots, some of which are marked out for a progressive experience in complete safety.

Starting in 2024, Americans will need to register online with the ETIAS system before their trip to get visa-free entry. By completing an ETIAS application for US citizens online, you can avoid having to go through a length visa application process at a European embassy or consulate.

Do US Citizens Need a Visa to Visit Europe?

American citizens do not need a visa to visit countries in the Schengen Area or for prospective member states that are preparing to join Schengen. This includes most European Union (EU countries) and a few others.

Starting in 2024, Americans will need to register online with the ETIAS system before their trip to get visa-free entry.

By completing an ETIAS application for US citizens online, you can avoid having to go through a length visa application process at a European embassy or consulate.

Bear in mind that the ETIAS only applies to the countries in the Schengen Area and a select few others, but not to all European countries. US passport holders may need a visa for certain countries in Europe that are not a part of the Schengen bloc, such as Russia.

What is the ETIAS for US citizens?

The European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) is a digital visa waiver system. It allows eligible travelers to visit the Schengen Area without a visa.

It is being introduced as a security measure to screen travelers who have not had to apply for a visa. It is modelled on similar systems around the world such as the US ESTA.

The ETIAS system is designed to be quick and convenient, while providing an extra layer of security for the Schengen border.

It will take a matter of minutes for American applicants to enter their details. Confirmation of the approved ETIAS visa waiver for US citizens will be delivered by email within a few business days at most, making it a much simpler and faster process than applying for a visa.

Countries that Americans Can Visit with ETIAS

The ETIAS for US citizens allows Americans to visit any country within the Schengen Area.

The Schengen Area currently consists of 27 member states: 23 European Union (EU) countries and the 4 members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA).

further 3 EU countries are in the process of joining the Schengen Area (Bulgaria, Cyprus, and Romania). ETIAS will allow US nationals to visit all of these countries too.

This means that ETIAS will grant Americans access to most of the EU member states, with only the Republic of Ireland maintaining a separate visa policy.

There are also 4 European microstates for which the ETIAS will be needed to visit visa-free from the United States. Although not technically part of Schengen, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, and Vatican City can only be accessed by land from a neighboring Schengen country, for which ETIAS will be required.

As of 7/31/23 ETIAS is not yet live, but you can sign up for updates and find more information here: https://etias.com/etias-application
