There are numerous ways to get to us, depending on the size of your group, budget and overall preference.
Overnight and day indirect rail services via Paris (sleeper services and normal seats available)
Daytime Eurostar direct on a Saturday
Overnight Eurostar direct - overnight Friday night, return Saturday night
Overnight/Day Eurostar via Paris
There is a sleeper service giving you 8 days skiing. It leaves St Pancras on the Friday where you change trains in Paris (same station) for the sleeper and arrive in the resort around 7.30am. For chalets in Plagne 1800 the station to get off is Aime. For Montchavin and Peisey you alight at Landry. It is also possible to take this service during the day using the normal TGV trains from Paris.
If the train does not stop at Landry (ie. the direct day service) then it will stop at Bourg St Maurice.
Overnight direct train service
This service leaves London St Pancras or Ashford International Kent and travels directly to Aime, Landry or Bourg St Maurice without changing trains. Travel is in a reclining seat as there is no sleeper service available on the Eurostar train with an arrival time of 06:30. Be prepared to have breakfast at the café opposite the station as it is too early to enter the chalet but you have the benefit of 8 days skiing.
There is also a day service which takes about 8 hours arriving around 18h30 - just in time for dinner at the chalet - and is the most comfortable and convenient way to travel. For further information please visit www.raileurope.co.uk
Please note for those requiring a transfer from the station to the resort you will not be picked up until 8-8.30am so you can have breakfast in the cafe opposite the station. We can arrange a taxi service for you if required (please contact us for prices). This will then allow time for the departing guests to vacate the rooms so we can start cleaning your chalet. You will be able to change in an allocated spare room or in the garage and leave your bags there while you go skiing. Your rooms will be ready by 2pm. On the last Saturday you will not be able to have a shower or change if you spend the day skiing.
We use Eurotunnel and DFDS for the cross channel crossings.
We don’t deal direct with any Airlines as there are so many now offering cheap flights so we think it’s best to shop around. Here are a some to try:
We use the companies below for all our transfers: Please mention that you are staying with Ski Hiver – they know where all our chalets are as they have worked with us many times before!
If you are a smaller group who cannot fill a minibus please ask us for the other options available.
