Therefore our 2nd ski trip looks like a non starter
Bad luck - so disapointing.
What you need to do is book a solo trip for yourself early March to "reconoitre" for the next rip.
I'm sorry to hear you're still ticketless
Are you looking at 16th to 23rd February? I had a look on the Eurostar website just now and they still have 4 tickets for a total of £1356-00 for standard non-flexible day train. Or were you looking for the flexible tickets? I always get the cheap non-flexible ones because I can't see myself changing my mind about going unless one of us was really ill or something in which case I could claim on our travel insurance.
They always seem to bump the price up for Feb half-term, whether you're going by train or flying.
I should think the indirect tickets (changing trains and stations in Paris) will be cheaper but I don't know what the price will be for them because you won't be able to buy those for quite a while yet.
Best of luck with finding a cheaper way of getting out there. Presumably you've thought of driving?
I've bought my Eurostar ticket for the J2Ski group holiday (with the Ski Club of GB discount), and I managed to print it out as well - they charge an extra £8 if you want them to post you a traditional paper ticket!
Its small and as far as I remember it has one pub, bread shop and a pizza place but the access to the slopes is great and the free ski bus is pretty good too.
The location in the 3 valleys is handy too and there is a chair lift up to another large chair lift which brings you high up.

Thanks Ally but I've just gone on the site now and the standard return leg is showing as sold out. i think we're going to give up.....
You could also do an overnight stop if you prefer to break the driving, in which case I would skip the French Autoroutes and save 150 euro (return costs) in tolls.
