Designed to make the most out of the time on the mountain, Freshtracks holidays are tailored to ski ability levels that are then categorised as on or off-piste, as well as four further categories including All Mountain, Ski Touring, Weekend and Bucket List.

Holidays are suitable for all levels of skier and snowboarder, from a minimum of an early intermediate (confident on blue runs and easy reds), right up to experts that can handle all conditions both on and off-piste.

Key to the success and popularity of Freshtracks holidays is being able to ski with like-minded people, with guides and instructors that are fully qualified and Ski Club reps that help to make the overall holiday experience more enjoyable with a social activity programme.

Holidays run through until May 6th, 2024 with weekend skiing in Zermatt and Tignes.

All together there are 157 holidays in over 50 destinations.
