Bucket list destinations, weekend trips and holidays for younger skiers are among the additions to the programme next winter.

The Ski Club of Great Britain's 2019-20 brochures are out and they're looking a little different with hundreds of holidays across Europe, North America and Japan.

The Bucket List category is brand new and is aimed at giving skiers and snowboarders that extra something.

Locations include "powder-filled Japan (South Tohoku, Hakuba, Myoko & Nozawa Onsen), unspoilt Spain (Baqueria/Beret), rustic Italy (Alagna) and snowy Canada (Whitewater and Red Mountain)."

For the time-poor there are weekend adventures.

How about a luxury visit to Gstaad in Switzerland with three days of social skiing?

Or three days with mountain guides in Aviemore in Scotland?

Last winter Freshtracks launched its New Horizons holidays for the under-39s.

Next winter, there is a new programme of 12 holidays for younger skiers and snowboarders to resorts including Val d'Isere, Mayrhofen and Hakuba.

There are also new off-piste experiences as well as new courses in the UK and in Meribel in France.

Other highlights for the 2019-20 season include a new six-bedroom chalet in Chamonix closer to the ski lifts and near the resort's après spots and the Club's popular two chalets in Flaine.
