All you need to know about ski holidays by train

Train options

  • Eurostar Ski Train

    The Eurostar Ski Train daytime service, direct from London to the Tarentaise resorts of the French Alps, makes you wonder why you ever flew.

  • Eurostar's direct overnight Ski Train to the Tarentaise region of the French Alps and has a cafe bar and reclining seats, but no actual couchette beds.

  • Take a Eurostar to Paris and then a smooth, fast TGV train to ski resorts all over France - and to some in Italy, Switzerland and Austria too.

  • Take a Eurostar direct to Lyon, where you simply change platform to take a local train to your ski resort.

  • Take a Eurostar and then a Corail Lunea sleeper train to French, Italian and Andorran resorts.

  • NightJet to Innsbruck
    Combine a Eurostar, ICE and a NightJet sleeper train, and you can travel overnight in comfort to Austrian Tirol, and get two extra days on the slopes.
  • Travelling to Swiss resorts takes a little longer than to French ones, but it's a scenic journey and most resorts have a train station right in the village
