Travel by train this winter - Eurostar is back with its fantastic ski train, the Eurostar Snow train, for the 2023/24 ski season and we here at Inghams are on-board for this new journey, because it’s…
Enjoy the spectacular views as you travel across Europe to the stunning town of Bourg-Saint-Maurice. With comfy seats and generous leg-room you can sit back and relax or even sleep while the countryside passes you by.
Train travel is ideal with a family. With the Eurostar Snow train, there is always plenty of room, so toys and games to entertain your children is not an issue space wise. Plus if you don’t want to pack a picnic, the trains on-board Cafe provides a variety of food and drink.
The biggest reward travelling via Eurostar Snow is that you get extra time on the slopes. The train departs from Bourg-Saint-Maurice on Sundays at 8:30am, returning to London St Pancras International at 4pm. This means you have an extra full day of skiing on Saturdays.
Once on-board, you can just enjoy the journey and service provided by the Eurostar Snow train. On an Inghams ski holiday, your transfers are covered from when you arrive in Bourg-St-Maurice to your chosen resort, as well as your hotel (the lovely Base Camp Lodge) being included for the Saturday evening before your return home.
The great thing about train travel is there is no weight limit on bags as with airlines or no limited space as with your car, so you can pack what you like and not just what you need. So make the most of this and add those extra thermal layers or spare pair of goggles to your suitcase. With Eurostar Snow offering generous luggage allowance, each traveller can have two suitcases, one piece of hand luggage and skis or snowboard at no extra cost.
Unlike some of the train journeys that force you to change at chaotic stations like Paris, Eurostar Snow makes a quiet stop at Lille. It leaves you plenty of time to get off, help your children, and gather your bags and walk across the platform to your waiting connection.
Eurostar Snow train will be running from the 16th of December, for 8 weeks into February, the ideal months for keen skiers who like to make the most of good snowfall.
