Probably the simplest way to go by train is to travel on Eurostar, which operates special ‘Ski Trains’ directly to the French Alps during the ski season. You have the choice of two Eurostar Ski Train services each week—either by day or, if you take the overnight service, you gain extra skiing days by arriving Saturday morning and leaving late Saturday evening.

Eurostar trains depart from either London St Pancras, or Ashford International, and go straight to Moûtiers, which is only about 15 miles away from Courchevel.

Satobus operate a coach service between Moûtiers and Courchevel, which only takes about 45 minutes, making this method of travel very easy indeed.
