CAN I QUIT FLYING?

the travelling to the ski resort that's important, not what the resort is doing to minimise your environmental impact when you arrive. (Although every little bit helps: see the panel on green ski lifts opposite.)

But here's a final consolation: when you do arrive in the resort, wherever it is and however you got there, the likelihood is that you'll be producing less CO2 skiing all day than in your regular life back home. Ski lifts use comparatively little energy, skiing is good for your health and the mountains good for your soul. There are few better places to think about what's really important in the world.

THE MATHS

One person taking the train from London to the Alps creates about 14kg of CO2. One person flying to resort, plus transfers on either side creates over 100kg of CO2, one way, while driving creates around 225kg per car. It can be pretty expensive and take longer if you don’t live near London, but taking the train does mean you don’t have to worry about luggage restrictions, airport queuing and you get more leg room.

Train

You can get the Eurostar direct ski train leaving London St Pancreas direct to Bourg St Maurice on a Friday overnight train, returning the following Saturday, however the price when I looked was £238 return (compared to a return flight at £80). You could make it cheaper, having 3 changes £128.10 from London - Bourg St Maurice, plus the additional bus, train and tube I'd need to take from my door to get to London St Pancras

Journey time - 08:00 - bus to local station, train to London, tube across London to St Pancras, train from St Pancras to Bourg St Maurice (3 changes including metro across Paris). Arrival in Chamonix 20:49. Total 12 hours 49 minutes, 6 changes.

If you took the direct, much more expensive option, the total hours would be c.15h from door to door but on an overnight train with 3 changes in total.

26kg carbon

Cost - direct bus, train £238, tube, train

changes - bus, train, tube, train £128.10, coach

No  luggage restrictions, airport queuing and you get more leg room.

Drive

coach = 55kg carbon

drive = 225kg per car

Fly

Journey time - 14:25 - Bus to airport, flight, communal transfer to resort. Arrive in Chamonix 22:00. Total 7h 35 mins, 2 changes.

164kg carbon

Cost - bus, flight, baggage, transfer

What have I learnt?

  • Be more organised and look for train tickets well in advance. If still too expensive, consider driving.
  • Budget for a more expensive transport option within the overall holiday price.
  • I've also bought a map which shows the train connections for the 100 most popular ski resorts in the Alps so I can plan more easily.
  •  Choose a green ski resort

  • HERPES VIRUS CURE

    I am writing this testimonial with immense gratitude and a renewed sense of hope in my heart. For years, I battled with the physical and emotional torment caused by the herpes virus. It felt like an unending struggle, until I discovered a remarkable solution that changed my life forever.

    Like many others, I had tried countless remedies, medications and therapies in search of a cure. I had lost hope, resigned to the belief that herpes was something I would have to live with indefinitely. However, fate intervened and led me to a breakthrough that altered the course of my life.

    Upon stumbling upon a revolutionary treatment option, my skepticism slowly transformed into a flicker of hope. The treatment was a natural remedy from Dr Awase [ HERBS ]

    Over time, as I followed the treatment diligently, I started noticing positive changes and I experienced a boost in my overall well-being. I am ecstatic to share that I am now herpes-free confirmed by my Dr after a test was done. The treatment I received was nothing short of miraculous and I couldn’t be more grateful. I have regained my self-confidence and the burden that once weighed heavily upon me has been lifted. I was cured of my herpes virus through natural medication.

    If you, like me, have been struggling with herpes and searching for a way out, please know that hope exists. May my story inspire hope in the hearts of those who need it. He also specializes in getting rid of HPV, OVARIAN CYST, ALZHEIMER, PCOS, HEPATITIS and a lot more.
