Game of Thrones and Eco-friendly ski holidays

Much of what we do today impacts our planet, did you realise that if you watched Game of Thrones on your television you will have burned over 5kg of carbon, assuming it was streamed and you watched it on a 50-inch High Res TV. The full series ran for 70.23 hours and used 71.49g of carbon per hour.*

A package holiday to Val d’Isere with flights and taxi transfers to Val d’Isere uses 207kg of carbon, that’s the same as watching all 8 seasons of Game of Thrones 41 times or streaming anything on your 50-inch TV for 128 days of continuous viewing!


Ski Line promises to highlight green initiatives being undertaken by our featured ski resorts. We will praise green standards awards won by our hotel partners such as Club Med and Pierre Vacances who are building hotels and apartments which use sustainable power, water and waste management. It’s only a small contribution to our planet, we know, but it’s a start, and we are sorry it took us 27 years to recognise this.

Our Eurostar ski package holidays create the equivalent of only 36.96kg of CO2, so that’s 170kg less than flying. If you are concerned about your carbon footprint, that’s a great place to start. It’s also a very good place to start if you want value for money too…


Our Train packages include a 7-day ski pass, transfers directly to your chosen hotel or apartment and a journey time that’s about the same as flying but much more interesting. Our Prices start at just £504pp.

If you are lucky enough to have an electric car, 5 passengers making a journey from London to Val d’Isere releases just 13.2kg of CO2.
