UberSki launches ahead of half-term holidays

Ahead of the ski season in the French Alps this February half-term, Uber has launched a service that means guests can get from station to ski resort quickly and easily.

UberSki, available on the Uber app in the French city of Grenoble, means holidaymakers can skip the frenzy of parking and hauling luggage around.

When guests request UberSki from Grenoble railway station, a vehicle will arrive to take them to one of six alpine ski resorts at a flat fare: l’Alpe d’Huez, Les Deux Alpes, Chamrousse, Les Sept Laux, Villard-de-Lans and L’Alpe du Grand Serre.

UberSki will be available from February 9th until March 10th – and will be available in English.

The app has previously launched UberBOAT, which allows guests to get around the Croatian islands in style, as well as UberCOPTER, which offers bookable helicopter rides across the Côte d’Azur during popular periods for holidaymakers, including the duration of the Cannes Film Festival.

Uber is a smartphone app that lets users easily book a car with a driver at the touch of a button in more than 600 cities around the world.
