The Eurostar overnight service departs from Waterloo Friday afternoon and stops in Paris. You change platforms and take another train that arrives at Bourg St Maurice the following morning . Transfer time from Bourg St Maurice to Val d’Isere is approximately 40 minutes. If you are experiencing difficulties in finding a flight in to any French or Swiss airport, try Turin in Italy as this is not as far from Val d’Isere as you think.
