All you need to know about ski holidays by train

Live ski and snow train prices

As soon as independent rail tickets are on sale for the 2020-21 winter season, we will show live train prices here.

Tickets for the direct Eurostar Ski Train go on sale mid-July (exact date TBC) for all dates of the 2020-21 ski season.

Indirect journeys via Paris or Brussels go on sale about 90 to 120 days in advance (it varies depending on the date).

Generally, in terms of saving money, trains around Europe work the same way as flights do - i.e: the earlier you book, the lower the fares.

Ski packages that include train travel are available from a number of tour operators. Best of all, some of these packages can be booked through operators even before the independent rail tickets have gone on general sale. This is particularly useful for popular dates such as Feb half term.  For more details, see the Packages section.
