SkiRail Map of the Alps

Glacier Express Glacier Express. © SwissTravelSystem.ch

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 alternatives.

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 a look inside the factfile.

'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.' Fall-line Skiing issue 95
