Help is needed to save the Ski Train, the most direct route from the UK the the French Alps
Eurostar has cancelled the Ski Train - the most direct, comfortable and sustainable route from the UK to the Alps.
This is a disastrous move - with seemingly no consultation with the ski or travel industry - both for the many thousands of skiers that use this service and in the face of the climate crisis.
We need more low-carbon ways to travel than ever before. The Eurostar results in only a fraction of the emissions of an equivalent journey by plane or car.
More and more travellers are cutting back on flights and looking for low-carbon transport, while many more are reluctant to fly in cramped cabins again due to Covid-19.
While there are other train routes to the French Alps, the Ski Train is the most direct and easiest option for British travellers, encouraging many who would have flown to take a much more sustainable option.
