The snow train to Meribel means 30% more skiing in every one week ski holiday.8 Days skiing the 3 valleys instead of 6. Rail Europe (Eurostar) have snow trains with Friday evening departures from St Pancras station to Moutiers (Meribel). Rail Prices are higher than flights but involve no costly airport transfers and are definitely more convenient.
Both trains arrive early Saturday morning at about 06.00 at Moutiers rail station, which is 20 minutes by bus from Meribel. Have breakfast in Moutiers. Nobody normally opens till 08.00 in Meribel!!
The snow train is highly recommended by us for a Meribel skiing holiday. A regular public bus will bring you up from Moutiers to Meribel centre. Cost about 12 euros per person. A taxi to Meribel is approx 60 euros for 4 persons. The great advantage is 8 days skiing instead of 6 for the same travel costs. 30% more time on your favourite ski slopes. Skiing in Meribel on Saturdays is pure bliss: very quite as it is changeover day for most.
Go for it… We wish you great snow……
