Question:
I'm looking to travel by train. Which routes can I take and could you suggest a couple of resorts with their own train station?
Answer:

The Eurostar snowtrain is running this winter, with access to the French Savoie region and the big resorts of the Three Valleys, Paradiski and Espace Killy. Tickets are limited however and February half-term tickets are usually sold out within hours of going on sale.

It is possible to book a train journey the whole way from the UK using the Rail Europe website although the prices can be more expensive than flying. However some resorts are within an 8 hour journey of London and many have their own train station. I would consider Chamonix as a good destination as is St Gervais just down the valley. The Portes du Soleil is also very easy to reach with a train from Geneva via Monthey on the Swiss side, with the trip from Geneva to Champery lasting just over two hours.
