Charting the position of over 440 resorts across the Alps from Lyon to Ljubljana, and Milan to Munich, this clear and detailed winter-sports
map of the Alps is the first to focus specifically on rail routes through the Alps, enabling travellers to plan their journeys to winter sports
resorts by train from the UK or an Alpine airport.
Developed by Alpine mapping experts Roger Lascelles (Maps) Ltd, the map is available in a variety of forms including the original SkiRail
Map of the Alps produced for the 2011 season, available as a folded map or wall map, as well as a brand new app for iPhone, iPad and Android
launched this season - see Press Release.
A useful free French ski vocabulary guide is also available and can be dowloaded from the link to the right.
Rail is becoming an increasingly popular choice for people travelling across, and to,
the Alps. It offers a much more pleasant alternative to the conventional flight-and-coach
combination, and imposes a greatly reduced carbon footprint compared with road and air-based
The SkiRail Map covers the entire Alpine region at an approximate scale of 1: 1,400,000. Clear mapping
shows the rail network through the Alps together with the locations of over 400 ski resorts.
High speed rail lines are highlighted and major rail tunnels shown together with mountain railways
and connecting cable cars.
Over 100 resorts that are directly accessible by train are highlighted on the map and
comprehensive information provided on the services they offer in an accompanying table.
A small scale, inset map is also included showing rail routes to the Alps from
surrounding European countries, with approximate journey times, assisting travellers
with planning their route to the region. Please see the Product Information section
for more details on the map and a sample of the mapping.
The map includes many well-known, classic Alpine resorts across Austria, France,
Germany, Italy, Slovenia
and Switzerland, as well as lesser-known places which attract few visitors beyond the
local region, and which offer uncrowded slopes and a rewarding cultural experience. The map is
available both as a handy folded map
and wall map. The map also comes with
an accompanying 40-page factfile giving more information on skiing by train
and the various resorts. Please click HERE to take

What our reviewers say...
'A much better option than trying to make sense of the various rail networks’ websites'
'An interesting and helpful start to your rail experience'
Where to Ski and Snowboard (website)
'For less than a tenner it puts everything you need in one handy package. See its brilliance in 1:1,400,000 form!
And if you’re planning a big ski rail trip this winter, it’s indispensable. Verdict – excellent if you fancy a rail
jaunt. Useful even if not as it maps out all resorts, how they are linked, and how to get there.'
