White mountains, blue skies and the burnished metallic letters of Meribel’s signature logo make a fabulous composition. Gather your family and friends into the shot and say it loud and proud: ‘We’re in Meribel!’ - at the heart of the biggest ski area in the World.
How will you pose? Let your artistic freedom loose!
Beautifully carved from a huge trunk of douglas fir free, this gorgeously tactile sculpture is located at the summit of Roc de Tougne in Meribel, above wild terrain dotted with pines. Follow your instincts: feel free to climb up and make yourself part of this sculpture: smell the freshly-cut wood, touch the frozen sap and admire the views of Mont Blanc in the distance.
Don’t forget to hashtag #meribel #backtothewild, your pictures might be published!
Elegant, proud and presiding over the wilderness… At the iconic peak of La Masse in Les Menuires, this statuesque 3m high carved ‘bouquetin’ lends a warm wooden accent to the black and white hues of this high-altitude terrain.
A visit to the 3 Vallées wouldn’t be complete without a snap of this fine beast and, who knows, perhaps you’ll be able to capture a real ibex on camera…
Top tip: Head to Courchevel’s Marmottes chairlift – there are binoculars for public use which are focussed on the steep crags opposite – a popular ‘bouquetin’ hideout!
You haven’t been to Courchevel unless you’ve had your photo next to one of the larger-than-life scultpures which are dotted around the ski area.
Perched on the peaks of Saulire, Vizelle, Chenus, Biollay, works of art by Richard Orlinski and Julien Marinetti add a splash of vivid colour to the monochrome mountains. These works are full of imagination, so get creative with your camera!
