Caroline Sayer

Val Thorens Reporter

Featured in: | Updated

Caroline is our all-singing, all-dancing reporter, producing live snow reports from the 3 Valleys in the winter to writing about her summer days out exploring Provence, Caroline loves adventuring and letting us know of the best places to see in Val Thorens.

Caroline has lived in Méribel for 20 years, working variously as a tour operator manager, ski school PR, Radio Méribel presenter and freelance translator - Caroline is a true local. For the past decade, she has enjoyed what she describes as the best job in the world, being paid to ski around les 3 Vallées and talking about it.

When the snow melts and the lifts close Caroline migrates south to her home in Provence where she spends an equal amount of time relaxing and sampling the local produce as she does out exploring the hilltop villages and busy market towns.

Memorable travel experience

The summit of my mountain experiences was climbing Mont Blanc; something I manage to drop into conversation as often as possible!

Top tips

Visit Meribel in low season, if you can. If you are able to take a couple of days away at short notice, keep reading the snow reports and sign up to the free dump alerts so you can book a last-minute break when the snow is at its best.
