The Travelski Express will again be offering the direct Eurostar train service from London to the Alps.
Available solely as part of a Travelski Express package, the service will be running each week for the 2022/23 ski season. The first train is scheduled to depart on 17 December 2022 with the final departure on 08 April 2023.
Following feedback from last season, the train will now run outbound from London on Saturday morning, arriving at Moutiers and Bourg St Maurice in the Tarentaise on Saturday afternoon.
The return train will leave on Saturday evening, allowing an (almost) full day of skiing on Saturday, arriving back into London St Pancras early on Sunday morning.
Travelski Express packages, include return direct train, accommodation, transfers and local area lift pass, and go on sale from 08 June.
The resorts offered are Val d'Isere, Tignes, Meribel, Les Arcs, Brides Les Bains, Les Menuires and La Plagne.
CEO of Travelski, Guillaume de Marcillac, said:
"We were really happy with the reaction of British skiers to our new direct train packages. Despite a challenging start to the season, we carried over 5100 skiers. We have listened to their feedback and have decided to switch the train timings to a daytime service at the start of the holiday, rather than at the end. They will still have the longer ski period [7 days] taking the direct train."
It's estimated that each passenger journey on the direct Travelski Express emits less than a quarter of the carbon of a passenger opting to fly to Geneva - making this the most carbon-effective way of travelling to a ski resort.
