Freshtracks have also included dream trips such as cat skiing in Canada, Backcountry powder adventures in Japan and a 10-day Mt. Elbrus touring expedition which takes you to the peak of the highest mountain in Europe. Also available throughout the season are various powder and off piste skills courses at the Club’s Flaine & Chamonix chalets.
With Freshtracks it’s not just about the destination, most trips are led by a guide or instructor and accompanied by one of the Ski Club Leaders. You can choose a holiday based on your skill level and there are trips designed for families, single skiers (without room supplements) and over 55s plus development trips for those that want to improve their skills. All of the Freshtracks holidays can also be booked by private groups.
Prices start from £499 and are fixed for the season so you don’t have to worry about currency fluctuations.
