The French national rail company, SNCF, is putting tickets on sale for journeys between January 3rd and March 26th 2023. NEW
The tickets go on sale at an unspecified time on Wednesday 9th November.
They apply for journeys such as ones that combine a Eurostar to Paris from London, St Pancras with a TGV to get into the Alps.
It is often a tricky process to book train tickets independently to resorts in the Alps.
The web site Snowcarbon that encourages train travel to ski resorts has issued some resort specific booking guides for people to help them negotiate the booking process.
They include routes to resorts in Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland.
Here are a couple of examples from the French Alps as tickets are set to go on sale:
Others can be found on Snowcarbon’s ski resorts page
Simply select the resort you are interested in travelling to, and then choose the ‘Book Travel’ tab at the top.
There is growing interest in train travel to the Alps and is a method we have used at PlanetSKI several times in recent years:
