Extra Ski Time with the Ski Train

If you’re planning this year’s skiing holiday, and want to maximise your time on the slopes without breaking the bank, the ski train is for you. Departing from London Waterloo on Friday evening, you’ll travel down to the Alps through the night arriving in the mountains early on Saturday morning. This means you can be on the slopes well before many of the normal ski holiday flights have even taken off. 

Snow Train

For those of you looking for a stress free winter holiday without the hassle of airport transfers and queues, then look no further. The Eurostar departs from London St Pancras twice a week and travels via Ashford International to the centre of the French Alps.

Standard Premier ticket holders will be pleased with the spacious and comfortable seats whilst enjoying two light meals with refreshments throughout the duration of the journey.

Standard ticket holders can enjoy a selection of food and drink from the refreshment cart whilst sat back relaxing without the thought of that extra cost for ski gear as skis and snowboards are included in the price of the ticket.

Guests using the Friday night train will be happy to know that for change over day they will have the whole piste to themselves so skiers and snowboarders can carve wide runs freely. Daytime Eurostar ticket holders can witness amazing panoramic views of the snow topped mountains whilst travelling towards the French winter wonderland.

Free Ski Carriage on the Snow Train

Unlike flying you don’t have to worry about additional supplements and charges for things like baggage allowance and ski carriage. It’s all included in the price of your snow train ticket.

Luggage Allowance

Adult ticket includes:

  • 2 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment.
  • 1 small piece of hand luggage, e.g. handbag, laptop bag or briefcase.

Note: Pushchairs and prams travel for free in addition to your individual allowance. You'll need to fold your pram and store it in the luggage rack above your seat.

Business Premier ticket includes:

  • 2 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment.
  • 1 small piece of hand luggage, e.g. handbag, laptop bag or briefcase.

Children ticket includes:

  • 1 piece of luggage (up to 85cm long).
  • 1 piece of hand luggage.

Unbeatable Convenience

Getting to your ski resort is easy from Moutiers, Bourg or the other Alpine stations. With a plethora of public transport options, you’ll be on the slopes before you know it. For the zenith of convenience, accommodation in Les Arc 1600 can be accessed from the funicular railway — meaning you can effectively take the snow train from London, to the foot of the piste!
