Orcières Merlette is the perfect marriage of all that is important for a ski resort - a rare union between the sunny Southern Alps and the snow-covered Northern Alps, winter sports and activities, excellent infrastructure in resort (swimming pool, ice-rink...) and large natural spaces, a well run resort and a warm and friendly ambiance. A little corner of French Alps for people with high expectations !
Orcières Merlette is a true multi-activities resort : leisure and relaxation with the complex of the "Grande Ourse" (swimming pool, ice rink, leisure area, bowling, cinema ...), off skiing with the largest zipline in Europe, snake gliss, paragliding, speed riding, sled dogs, nights in an igloo, skijoring, quad bike, ice paintball... !
Did you know that it's Orcières in 1967 who conceived the first kindergarten ? And that it's still in Orcières in 1970 that the formula of "Cartable à la neige" has emerged ? The station has always been a pioneer in the field of childcare and family... Orcières Merlette have embraced the 'Family Friendly Mountain' label by recognising the needs of young and old alike, creating a family friendly ambiance and providing skiing for all levels. And so that the whole family can enjoy the pistes, Orcieres is the only resort to offer three telemixes (a mixture of chairs and cable cars on the same lift - great for non-skiers or little ones too small for the chairlifts).
