Eurostar runs direct day trains to the French Alps on Saturdays between December-April and direct night trains on Fridays from January-April.
Our generous luggage allowance means you can take your skis or snowboard, as well as two suitcases at no extra charge.
Trains leave from St Pancras International in London and Ashford in Kent, direct to the French Alps.
Seats are spacious with fold-down tables as well as tables of four for families and groups. There are luggage racks above the seats for small to medium bags and space at the entry of each coach for larger cases.
There are two bar buffet coaches for snacks, meals and drinks and toilets are found at the end of every coach, including some with disabled access.
Eurostar trains stop at Moûtiers, Aime-la-Plagne and Bourg-Saint-Maurice where you can get a coach to many of the top ski resorts. Courchevel, La Plagne, Tignes, Meribel and Les Arcs are all within easy distance.
Return trains leave from Moûtiers and Bourg-Saint-Maurice so you’ll need to make your way from Aime-la-Plagne to one of them on your way home.
On direct trains to Moûtiers, Aime-la-Plagne and Bourg-Saint-Maurice, you can take a pair of skis or a snowboard as well as your standard two-bag luggage allowance.
Escape the city on Friday night, relax on board and wake up in the Alps, or spend Saturday speeding through France, admiring the scenery and arrive in time for your first fondue.
