Eurostar’s popular ski destination train services from London to the French and Swiss Alps are getting busier by the day now as peak ski season aproaches.
Launched just last year, Eurostar’s Swiss ski service transports holidaymakers from St Pancras or Ashford International to the Swiss Alps and the Valais region.
The route has become increasingly popular with skiiers and snowboarders and will run over five peak weeks during the 2013-2014 ski season. Peak weeks include Christmas, New Year and February half-term and the service is good news for fractional and timeshare owners who plan to get away to the slopes for a break before spring.
The service also offers an easy connection in Lille onto a high-speed TGV Lyria service, making it simple for passengers to arrive into Vallorbe, Aigle, Martigny, Visp and Brig stations.
Meanwhile, Eurostar’s direct day and night services to the French ski towns of Moûtiers, Aime-La-Plagne and Bourg St Maurice are also running.
This seasonal ski service will run weekly from December 20th 2013 until April 12th 2014.
The stations offer easy access to a variety of top ski destinations in the French Alps, including Les Arcs, Courchevel, Tignes, Val D’Isère and Meribel.
Eurostar runs a Friday overnight service which arrives in the French Alps early on a Saturday morning, while a return leg departs late on a Saturday evening.
Alternatively, there are plenty of Saturday day services, allowing passengers to sit back, relax, and enjoy stunning views of the French countryside.
