Eurostar, the high speed passenger train linking the UK with the continent, has opened ticket sales for its popular direct day ski services from St Pancras International and Ashford International to the French Alps.

 Eurostar provides weekly direct services calling at Moûtiers, Aime-La-Plagne and Bourg St Maurice. There is no stop at Aime La Plagne on the inbound service and the first direct day service launches on 19 December 2010.

Eurostar’s direct ski services offer easy access to a variety of top ski destinations in the French Alps such as Courchevel, La Plagne, Tignes, Meribel, Les Arcs.

For added convenience, an extra item of luggage on top of the normal luggage allowance - such as a pair of skis or a snowboard - can be taken onboard at no extra cost and without the need to wait at airport baggage reclaim.

 “Eurostar offers the perfect solution for winter sports enthusiasts looking to avoid the stress of travelling by air whilst minimising their environmental impact. On average, a Eurostar journey accounts for just one tenth of the carbon emissions of an equivalent flight and allows travellers to arrive relaxed, refreshed and ready to hit the slopes,” said Mary Walsh, Eurostar’s Director of Communications. “As well as our popular French ski destinations, tickets for resorts in Switzerland will be available later in the year thanks to onward connections in Paris. More and more of our passengers are discovering the ease and convenience of onward travel thanks to Europe’s high speed rail network.”

Return fares start from £149 standard class. Travellers can indulge themselves on their way to and from the slopes by travelling Standard Premier, enjoying roomier accommodation and meals and drinks served at their seat from just £229 return.
