Swiss Alps Ski Train | 21st Dec 2013 - 8th March 2014

Travelling by train to the Swiss Alps this coming winter has become a whole lot easier. Every Saturday from 21st December onwards, the new 'Swiss Alps Ski Train' will be connecting London and Ashford directly with the Valais in Switzerland.

With just a simple platform change in Lille from your Eurostar carriage to the high speed TGV-Lyria train, the Swiss Alps Ski Train is the most direct route to the Valais. All four stops (Aigle, Martigny, Visp, Brig) in Switzerland allow onward rail/postbus connections to the various ski resorts in the Valais region such as Zermatt, Saas Fee, Leukerbad, Leysin, Verbier, Champéry, Les Diablerets, Villars and Haute Nendaz - to name just a few.
