9 Facts You Need to Know About the New 'Travelski Express' Ski Train

Iainm posted 15-Sep

We revealed last week that a new direct ski train service from the UK to the French Alps would be starting this winter.

Yesterday in London, the new 'Travelski Express' service was officially launched, attended by Guillaume de Marcillac, CEO of Travelski, who will be operating and selling this new product for Compagnie des Alpes (which also owns Travelski)

We spoke to M Marcillac and can now confirm many more details about the new service.

1. Six resorts will be served: La Plagne, Les Arcs, Tignes, Val d'Isère, Les Menuires and Méribel
2. These are all resorts owned by Compagnie des Alpes, who are leasing the train from Eurostar
3. Train-only tickets will not be available, only packages including train, transfers, accom and lift pass
4. Trains will leave London on Friday evening, arriving in the Tarentaise early on Saturday morning
5. Trains will depart the following Saturday morning, arriving in London that afternoon (around 4pm)

Ah that's a shame no train tickets only and no Ashford stop. I did keep asking them and no reply so I was getting worried
