A new video is out to show the advantages of taking the train to your ski resort of choice next winter.
It comes from the company, Snowcarbon, that aims to transform the way that skiers travel to the mountains.
“We want to help more people enjoy fantastic ski holidays by train and make the journey part of the holiday,” said Snowcarbon founder, Daniel Elkan.
“Travel accounts for nearly 70% of the carbon footprint of ski holidays.”
“Snowcarbon can help you find and/or create sustainable ski holidays – to help you slash the impact of your ski holiday.”
It offers advice and suggestions for ski holidays by train to the best resorts in France, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
