Eurostar, which is a high speed train service which was started in 1994, connects London with Avignon, Brussels, Lille, Lyon, Marseille and Paris. The trains have to traverse the Channel Tunnel between the United Kingdom and France.
The high speed passenger rail service has open rail service from London St Pancras and Ashford International to the heart of the French Alps on 20th July 2016. Skiers looking for the best way to travel to the slopes can start planning their winter adventure with Eurostar.
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 from17 December 2016 until 8 April 2017 with return fares from £149. Top resorts including Courchevel, Meribel, Tignes, Les Arcs and Aime-la-Plagne are all just a short journey from the station.
From 20th July, tickets are available on the official website.
