EUROSTAR SKI TRAIN TICKETS ON SALE
12th July 2018 | James Cove, PlanetSKI Editor
The numbers remain small but more skiers and snowboarders are heading to the mountains by train. We have details of the timetable for next winter.
Ticket prices start at £150 but are most more expensive in the peak periods.
In the Xmas week it is more than £300 for daytime services and over £500 for February half term with child discounts of about a third.
Eurostar is again running a service at Feb half term for skiers who have accommodation that is Sunday – Sunday.
This Eurostar service is outbound overnight on Saturday 16th Feb, and returns Sunday daytime on Sunday 24th Feb (not calling at Ashford on the inbound).
“For some reason (which I don’t know), the Eurostar Ski Train won’t call at Ashford on the return journey of Saturday 23rd Feb,” said the founder of the Snowcarbon website, Daniel Elkan.
The site specialises in train travel to ski resorts.
“This will be disappointing for all the families for whom Ashford is easier than St Pancras. Why oh why Eurostar can’t make the train stop there on that date, I don’t know,” added Daniel.
There is an overnight Eurostar service which is usually cheaper.
