The Ski Club of Great Britain has released its specialist holiday programme with a host of new offerings. Very inspiring they look too.

It has more than175 group holidays on offer and is the largest and most varied programme Ski Club Freshtracks has ever provided. 

With increased demand it has raised capacity by 10% - not bad when others are reducing their offerings. 

Ski Club Freshtracks provides group holidays matching skiers of a similar ability with specific skiing interests using only the best instructors, mountain guides and Ski Club Leaders - volunteer members who travel and ski with the groups and ensure the holidays run as smoothly as possible.

This unique formula is ideal for those who are looking to develop their skiing, seeking new skiing experiences, travelling independently or just wishing to share their passion for the mountains with other like-minded skiers. 

There is a choice of holiday types on offer, including on piste instruction, off piste holidays with instructors or mountain guides, ski touring holidays, on and off piste skiing weekends, heli and cat skiing or holidays where members ski together with Ski Club Leaders. 

Ski Club Freshtracks has again increased the number of holidays with single rooms for no supplement and there are more courses for those looking to progress their off piste skiing.

There are also a number of new destinations including Slovakia, Norway and Spain offering more adventurous experiences and some real hidden gems of resorts.  

This season there are a whole range of new destinations and new experiences.

 "We're delighted to be back with one of our biggest and best holiday programmes that Freshtracks has ever offered to our members. This year we've expanded our offering in Italy but added new destinations in places such as Eastern Europe and Scandinavia providing a more varied and exciting programme," said the General Manager of Ski Club Freshtracks, Jonny Cassidy.

"We've also seen a rise in the number of people wanting to improve their off-piste technique and venture more around the mountain so we've expanded our 'learning to ski off-piste' courses in France, Italy and Switzerland," he added.

All holidays are now on sale. Book online or call 020 8410 2022.
