Inghams Ski Eurostar Snow Train Packages

Inghams Ski has launched its Eurostar Snow train packages for the 2024/25 season, offering a low-hassle, sustainable option for customers travelling to France.

Operated by Eurostar, the Inghams Ski packages, which sold out last year, will serve the Val d’Isère, Tignes and Les Arcs ski areas.

This year Inghams Ski has tripled its commitment of allocated seats on the new Eurostar Snow train due to last year’s high demand, and to support the Eurostar route.

Open now for bookings, the train will run for a longer period this year to incorporate half-term weeks from 21st December 2024 to the last outbound train on 22nd February 2025.

Departing from London St. Pancras to Bourg-Saint-Maurice, with one easy platform change at Lille, Inghams Ski guests will then join a quick transfer to their chosen resort.

Operating from Saturday to Sunday, the train not only offers skiers and boarders a more sustainable travel option but also an extra day to enjoy the slopes.

With traditional ski packages running Saturday to Saturday, Inghams Ski have arranged seven-day lift passes for the price of six for customers returning by train on the Sunday.

Instead of getting up for an early transfer on Saturday, customers will get to spend Saturday on the slopes, with the option to store luggage in their hotel or chalet.

Customers will then be transferred on Saturday night to accommodation next to the station in Bourg-Saint-Maurice, ready for their return journey on Sunday morning.

John Mansell, Managing Director at Inghams Ski said:

“There has never been a better time to visit the slopes by train. We’re delighted Eurostar has extended its snow train timetable this coming winter to include dates over half term, and we are proud to announce that we’ve expanded our partnership for the season ahead.

“Offering lower carbon travel solutions is the crucial keystone of our sustainability strategy as we continue to work towards halving our emissions by 2030.

“As well as offering the Eurostar Snow train route into Tignes, Val d’Isère and Les Arcs, we also launched train routes to 15 other resorts in 3 countries last season – a total of 25% of Inghams’ global ski resorts reachable by train, from the UK.

“This season we’re going to expand our routes even further, offering customers the chance to travel by train to resorts in Morzine and Avoriaz, and elsewhere too.”
