Eurostar has announced sales for the brand-new Eurostar Snow service leaving from London to the Alps via Lille Europe. From just £99, ski and snowboard enthusiasts can head to the pistes by making a quick and easy connection in Lille before continuing their journey on a Eurostar continental train.

Tickets will go on sale 31st August and can be purchased on their website.

The new service offers customers a sustainable alternative to flying with more stops in the Alps than ever before. Eurostar Snow will whisk travellers to top ski resorts, such as Chambéry, Albertville, Moutiers, Aime-La Plagne, before arriving in Bourg-Saint-Maurice as its final destination.

Departing from London on 16th December, Eurostar Snow will run for eight weekends throughout the ski season. Leaving on Saturday morning, the train will arrive at the slopes in time for après-ski. The journey back to London will depart Sunday morning, arriving at St Pancras International in the afternoon.

Francois Le Doze, Chief Commercial Officer, Eurostar Group “We’re proud to offer our customers a sustainable travel option to the Alps by launching our first connecting service as Eurostar Group. With a quick and easy connection, competitive pricing and five stops to choose from, passengers can enjoy a seamless experience with us from the city of London to the snowcapped mountains of France.”

With off-peak fixed fares starting from £99 one-way in Standard and £149 in Standard Premier passengers will also benefit from a luggage allowance offering each traveller two suitcases, one piece of hand luggage and skis or snowboard at no extra cost.

Passengers travelling from France back to the UK will go through check-in, security, and immigration on arrival to Lille Europe before continuing their journey to London St Pancras International.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    This service has been available for many years in various forms, I think originally chartered from SNCF by one of the large holiday companies. But not always as a high speed service

    I used the service once some decades ago, starting from Calais Ville (I think) on a regular speed train, couchettes, overnight, connecting as a foot passenger on the Dover/Calais ferries
