Eurostar to offer late-season ski departures

Eurostar to offer late-season ski departures

Eurostar is providing another chance for skiers to take the train to the slopes, with additional services on sale today for the peak school holiday period during February half-term 2017.

The services to the French Alps offer a hassle-free journey, taking winter sports fans direct from platform to piste and offering a generous baggage allowance including two suitcases plus hand luggage and skis or snowboards at no extra cost.

The extra ski trains come in response to popular demand with the original half term services.

The four extra services will follow the usual timetable – with two outbound trains departing London on a Saturday night, whisking travellers up to the mountains in time for a Sunday morning on the slopes. 

The journey home will depart on Sunday mornings, arriving in London that afternoon.

On February 11th and 18th Eurostar will see an additional service leave London at 19:42, arriving at Moûtiers, Aime la Plagne, and Bourg St Maurice the following morning.

Top resorts including Courchevel, Meribel, Tignes, Les Arcs and Aime-la-Plagne are all just a short journey from the station.
