Silver Star is a small, quiet, family-friendly resort based around a traffic-free square that resembles a 19th century mining town, with brightly painted buildings and wooden walkways. There’s also a natural ice rink on a lake and a tubing hill nearby. Nearly all the accommodation is either ski-in/ski-out or less than 30 seconds’ walk from the snow. The slopes suit all standards, with a mixture of intermediate cruising and single and double-black diamond tree runs. The ski school is highly regarded.
But… 
Village may be too small and apr├Ęs too quiet for some tastes; modest ski area by Alpine standards.

Looks quite like Meribel. Enjoyed skiing there, and at Whistler in BC.
