Train Station to Ski Resort Transfers
While we usually concentrate on airport to ski resort transfers, did you know that Snowcompare can help you get a great deal on a ride from train stations too?
Despite the official Ski Train being cancelled this season, it is still possible and relatively easy to take a train from London to the heart of France’s best ski regions. The Ski Train (or Snow Train) would take passengers all the way from Euston station in London and drop them very, very close to their chosen ski resort without having to changeover at all.
Now, to do that same journey will require a short stop and change of station in Paris, but it still provides a uniquely convenient way of travelling to and from your next ski holiday. With disruptions in air travel expected for the foreseeable future, train travel is expected to provide a safer alternative for skiers & snowboarders. And of course train travel produces much less of a carbon footprint compared to flying so is doing the environment a favour too.
From Paris, the train will take you all the way into some great skiing country, and really close to some of the best ski resorts in the world. There are three train stations in the Tarentaise Valley which puts you right next to France’s best ski resorts:
Ski resorts accessible from Aime train station – La Plagne
Ski resorts accessible from Moutiers train station – Val Thorens, Les Menuires, St Martin de Belleville, Meribel, La Tania, Courchevel
Ski resorts accessible from Bourg St Maurice train station – Les Arcs, Tignes, Val d’Isere, Sainte Foy, La Rosiere
Arriving at your chosen train station still leaves passengers needing a journey up the mountain to the actual resorts though. Local buses are available, but the timings and reliability can be questionable. Taxis are often waiting, but may not be there at the busiest of times and can work out more expensive than is strictly necessary.
By far the best way of getting between the train station and your ski resort is to organise a private transfer in advance. This is where Snowcompare.com can help out. We work with the best local transfer companies and put them all on one website so you can find the cheapest train to resort transfers possible.
Booking in advance means you can be sure you won’t be left standing at the station waiting and wasting your holiday. On the journey from the resort to the station you want to know that your driver will be there on time and you can have a stress-free journey to finish your holiday with.
