Eurostar's ski train to the French Alps

We unfortunately won’t be running our direct ski trains during the 2020-21 winter season. However, you can now book an indirect trip to the Alps on our website. This would mean taking a Eurostar train to Paris Gare du Nord and changing onto a TGV train from Gare du Lyon to Bourg Saint Maurice for the rest of the journey.

Eurostar is a member of Railteam, which means you can benefit from the ‘Hop on the next available train’ feature should you experience any delays or cancellations on your journey, providing peace of mind when connecting between trains.


Take the train to Bourg-Saint-Maurice

Get to St Pancras International 45-60 minutes before your train leaves to go through security then, before you know it, you’ll be heading for the slopes.

On our direct ski trains you can take one pair of skis or a snowboard - in a protective case that covers the whole item - as well as your two-bag luggage allowance, at no extra charge.

Direct night trains run January-April, direct day trains run December-April.

What’s on board?

Whether you’re travelling by day or overnight, our comfy seats and generous leg room mean you can stretch out and sleep or just relax and enjoy the view.

Food and drinks are available at Café Metropole, our onboard bar buffet. However, to ensure a pleasant journey for all passengers, alcohol isn’t sold on night trains and you can’t bring it on board with you.

Arriving at Bourg-Saint-Maurice

Eurostar trains arrive at Bourg-Saint-Maurice station, right in the heart of ski country.

There, you’ll find coaches to Val Thorens, Val d'Isère, Courchevel, La Tania, Tignes, Meribel and Les Menuires.

All passport checks are done in the UK, so you can grab your bags and equipment  and step straight off the train and onto a coach, no time wasted.


Slope off to Bourg-Saint-Maurice
