New Swiss Snowtrain makes getting to the Alps easier for Brits

Skiers and Boarders heading for Switzerland this winter can let the train take the strain thanks to a new swiss ski train now linking London St Pancras with Swiss ski resorts this winter.

Leaving London at 6.57 am, with a brief stop in Ashford and then a quick change of platforms in Lille to a TGV (a lot better than the haul across Paris from Gare de Nord to Gare de Lyon) it then stops at Geneva (2.16pm), Aigle (3.47pm – local resorts being Champery, Villars and Les Diablerets), Martigny (4.13pm – Verbier, Le Châble and Chamonix), Sierre (4.39pm – Crans Montana), Visp (4.57pm – Zermatt, Leukerbad and Saas Fee) and Brig (5.08pm – Belalp, Blatten and Riederalp).

With trains running every Saturday from 22 December until 13 April ticket prices can be obtained from Eurostar.

One significant tip though is to book early, as there is only one train a week running on this route, and therefore as tickets disappear prices will rise as Eurostar use fluid pricing.
