By taking the Eurostar from London to the heart of the Alps you can maximize your time on the mountain. Take the night time service in both directions to get 8 days on the mountain or take the day train for stunning views.
Throughout the ski season you can board the Eurostar at St Pancras or Ashford International and travel to Moûtiers (for Méribel, Courchevel, Val Thorens), Aime-la-Plagne (for Peisey-Vallandry) or Bourg-St-Maurice (for Les Arcs, Val d'Isère and Tignes).
Standard Class offers an easy, no-fuss service with a buffet serving meals, snacks and beverages, or you can upgrade to Standard Premier where light meals and drinks are served at your spacious seat and are included in the cost of your ticket. Please note that alcohol is not served and cannot be brought on to the night train.
Getting Ready to Board Eurostar
These simple steps will help ensure a stress-free trip all the way to the Alps:
- Don't forget your tickets - these will be read by the ticket machines.
- You will also need passports for all passengers travelling on the Eurostar.
- We recommend that you check in an hour before your train is due to depart from the UK and 90 minutes before departing France.
- Eurostar allows an extra item of luggage per passenger, perfect for a pair of skis or a snowboard. That’s in addition to the maximum of 2 medium-sized cases (max 85cm in length), and one piece of hand luggage.
