Taking the Train to European Ski Resorts

Eurostar run a ski train from London and Ashford straight through to Bourg St Maurice serving the ski resorts of the Tarantaise. There are daytime and overnight services although the overnight train only offers reclining seats as opposed to couchette accommodation.

New this winter is a direct train to Lyon which is ideal for Alpe D'Huez and les Deux Alpes amongst others - it is Saturday only but leaves London just after 7am and has you in Lyon for 1pm 

At Zenith, we rather enjoy getting extra ski time in and prefer to travel overnight in comfort and this can be done on the Corail Lunea sleeper train, which has comfortable couchettes. These are great for families and means the holiday starts with the journey.....and not after the journey when flying!

The overnight Corail Lunea trains operate from Paris and can be taken to resorts across the French Alps including Serre Chevalier Vallee, Montgenevre, Alpe D'Huez, Chamonix and  Morzine - all can be booked at preferential rates via the Zenith call centre – email us your enquiry.

One of the things we have noticed is that skiers often fly because that is what thay have always done and they did not realise how easy and stress-free the train experience is.

With the new direct service to Lyon, it is getting even easier and quicker - do read more on our
