There are several options to get you to the slopes by train:
Eurostar Direct Ski Train
The direct train takes you from London to the Tarentaise regions of the French Alps, with no changes.
Journeys run: daytime (Saturdays) and overnight (departs London Friday evenings, departs the Alps Saturday evenings)
Facilities on board: the overnight and daytime services both have café bars. The overnight service does not offer couchettes, so you can't lie down, but you get a comfort pack containing a blanket, blow-up neck cushion, snacks, magazines, toothbrush and toothpaste.
Destinations include: Brides les Bains, Courchevel, La Plagne, La Rosiere, La Tania, Les Arcs, Les Menuires, Méribel, Morillon, Morzine, Peisey-Vallandry, Sainte Foy, St Martin de Belleville, Tignes, Val d'Isère, Val Thorens and Valmorel.
Eurostar + TGV
Take a Eurostar from London to Paris, and then change station (which is easy by taxi) and take a TGV (and sometimes to a regional train, InterCity or RailJet train from there). A variation on this journey is to travel to Paris in the late afternoon or evening, stop over and take a TGV to your resort the next morning.
Facilities on board: Eurostars and TGVs have café bars. InterCity and RailJet trains have on-board restaurants and bistros.
Journeys run: daytime, daily, with more services at weekends.
Destinations include: French resorts such as Les Arcs, Méribel, Val d’Isère, Val Thorens, La Clusaz, La Rosiere, Les Gets, Montgenèvre; Italian resorts such as Sauze d’Oulx, Sestrière and Clavière; Swiss resorts such as Crans Montana, Verbier, Zermatt and Saas Fee, and St Anton in Austria.
Eurostar + Corail Lunea Sleeper Train
Take an early-evening Eurostar from London to Paris, and then change station (which is easy by taxi) and take a Corail Lunea sleeper train.
Facilities on board: Eurostar has café bars. Corail Lunea’s have couchette beds.
Journeys run: every day to most of the destinations served.
Destinations: In 2016 SNCF axed a lot of their sleeper services, but one Alpine route remains, from Paris to Briancon. This serves the French resorts of Serre Chevalier and Montgenèvre; Italian resorts, such as Sauze d’Oulx, Sestrière and Clavière; and Grandvalira in Andorra.
Eurostar to Lyon + Local Train
Eurostar’s new direct service from London to Lyon takes four hours. From there, you can change platform to a local train to complete your journey, giving you easy access to a wide variety of ski resorts
Facilities on board: Eurostars have café bars.
