People heading on ski weekends in Meribel over the coming days will be able to enjoy some world-class competitions on the slopes.

More than 300 athletes, including Martin Fourcade, Marie Dorin and Marie-Laure Brune, will take to the slopes for this week's French Nordic Skiing Championships.

Due to take place between April 1st and the 3rd, the event will see the skiing icons make their way through the Altiport forest during 13 cross-country skiing and biathlon races.

Those on ski weekends will be able to see Olympic medallist Vincent Jay, who took home both a gold and bronze metal in Vancouver 2010, showcase his skills on the snow.

Last weekend, the British Ski Championships also kicked off in Meribel. More than 1,000 skiers will head to the Corbey Stadium over the coming days for the event.

The British Land Ski Championships have been taking place in the popular Three Valleys resort for the last eight years.
