Eurostar prepares to launch ski season 2016 tickets

Skiers looking for the best way to travel to the slopes can start planning their winter adventure with Eurostar.

The high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe opens sales for its popular service from London St Pancras and Ashford International to the heart of the French Alps on July 20th.

The day and night services direct to the French Alps offer a hassle-free start to the holiday, with passengers able to relax in spacious surroundings on board and make the most of the generous baggage allowance to carry plenty of ski gear – each passenger can take two suitcases plus hand luggage and skis or snowboards at no extra cost.

The Friday overnight service gives winter sports enthusiasts an extra two days on the pistes, arriving in the French Alps on a Saturday morning to be welcomed by quieter slopes as other holidaymakers board their coach transfers to and from airports. 

Alternatively, the Saturday daytime service allows passengers time to sit back, relax and enjoy the view of French countryside as it turns from farmland to fresh snow.


The 2015/2016 seasonal ski services will run weekly from December 17th until April 8th, 2017.

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

Tickets are available from July 20th.
