Many skiers struggle to take time off work but are eager to hit the slopes this season. Most tour operators finish their season in mid-April, but Ski Freshtracks offers weekend breaks right up until 1st May, ensuring skiers can maximise their season but take minimal time off work.

Five reasons for taking a Ski Freshtracks weekend break:

- Minimal time off work. Travel out on Thursday evening and return Monday evening enjoying a full four days on the snow.

- Maximum time on the slopes. The end of the season is warmer, the days longer and the lifts stay open later.

- Snow-sure resorts. All Ski Freshtracks weekends are run to high altitude, snow-sure resorts.

- Availability at Easter. Ski Freshtracks has a range of long weekends over the Easter period which mean 4 days skiing and no need to take time off work.

- Skiing with top class instructors, mountain guides and Ski Club leaders.

Many of the Ski Freshtracks holidays are accompanied by IFMGA mountain guides and highly qualified and experienced instructors. Also, Ski Freshtracks are the only company offering holidays which are accompanied by Ski Club leaders to and from resort and on the slopes.

Caroline Boileau, General Manager of Ski Freshtracks explains what makes Ski Freshtracks weekends so special: “Many skiers are busy people who are restricted on time but love their skiing. Our weekends ensure skiers meet with like-minded people and ski with a group of a similar skiing ability”.

“Our holidays are adventures, including the weekends. Our leaders, guides or instructors ensure everyone gets as much time as possible on snow and the best thing is we take all the hassle out of booking a weekend break. It couldn't be easier!”
