When you take an overnight train you get up to two extra days on the slopes. Most ski holidays involve an early-morning charter flight. But, however early you set your alarm clock, you won’t get to ski that day. Your 7-night holiday is really a 6-day one.
Instead of getting up early on a Saturday morning, you can take the train on Friday evening. You’ll arrive in resort just in time for the first lift. And – because Saturday is the main transfer day in most resorts – you’ll enjoy a full day on the slopes without the usual crowds.
