Take the Eurostar ski train to the Swiss Alps
Introduced for the 2012-13 ski season, Eurostar’s ski train to the Swiss Alps provides a new way of reaching your favourite ski resorts in the Valais region. Eurostar has teamed up with the French TGV network to bring skiers and snowboarders on the high speed connection from St Pancreas to the heart of the Swiss Valais ski area. The Swiss Alps ski train tickets are valid for Aigle, Visp, Brig or Martigny stations which all have quick and easy connections to the nearby ski resorts. You need to change trains at Lille but other than that this is one of the easiest and most relaxing ways to get to your ski holiday in the Alps.
