Considering Snow and Rail but don't have SwissPass as i don't live in Switzerland

Hello

I just learned about Snow and Rail offer, i would be very interested to buy it for me and my family for a trip from Geneva to Verbier including skiing there, but we do not have SwissPass physical cards as we don't live in Switzerland, and no way to purchase them abroad in advance..

My question is can I buy this Snow and Rail offer online, and then after we land in Geneva go at the SBB ticket counter at Geneva Airport to obtain the SwissPass cards and load the tickets onto the new cards, and then go to the train immediately afterwards ?

Thanks

Tom

Hello @skiinverbier 

For the Snow and Rail offer you do not necessarily need a SwissPass. The problem is the SwissPass will be issued after submission of the ID copy and a passport photo only in at least 10 days and sent by letter. In this case - not possible. However, as I said, it also works without SwissPass. You can enter only the mail address in the delivery method in the webshop when completing the purchase and leave the field with the customer number blank. Thus you will receive the Ski Pass by e-mail.

For further questions you can also contact our Contact Center at +41 848 44 66 88 (CHF 0.08/min.).

Thank you for your understanding and wish you happy holidays.
