From 22 December 2017 to 7 April 2018 you can hop on the Eurostar ski train at St Pancras International or Ashford International and be whisked direct to the French Alps at 186mph. Once you arrive, you’ll have great access to top ski resorts like Courchevel, La Plagne, Tignes, Meribel and Les Arcs, all just a short coach ride from the train station.

A tip for those in the know: If you travel on the direct night train to the French Alps both ways, you'll get two extra days on your skis. You'll arrive on Saturday morning and leave on Saturday evening, beating the flying crowd and having the slopes all to yourself on change over day

Check in an hour before your train is due to depart

That way you'll be able to avoid any queues and breeze straight through to the departure lounge.
