The winter holidays start next Saturday for zone C. To encourage skiers to hop on the train, we are selling TER+ ski tickets in the Pyrenees.

Before skiing, many rode horses. The train is more environmentally friendly but most skiers prefer the car. It is possible to find train tickets at affordable prices, but during school holidays it is another matter. Enough to demotivate many families. Aime-la-Plagne station in Savoy is experiencing a drop in traffic because trains stop there less and less. The night train has not run since 2016, the line closed due to lack of profitability.

A formula that is becoming increasingly attractive

Near the Pyrenees, it is possible to obtain a TER+ ski ticket, starting from Toulouse (Haute-Garonne). Skiers therefore only have one ticket for the train and the cable cars. In total, 46.80 euros for one day. The formula is not new, but it is becoming increasingly popular. The potential is enormous. In France, around 40% of ski resorts are accessible by train.
