Spring skiing with the Ski Club of Great Britain

The Ski Club of Great Britain has availability on late season skiing holidays with its Freshtracks programme, suitable for a variety of skiing levels and based across the French and Italian Alps.

Ski Club members can benefit from exclusive courses, led by qualified instructors and mountain guides, with like-minded skiers that are of similar ability levels.

With snow conditions heading into late March looking like some of the best of the season, April could be a good opportunity for skiers to get out onto the slopes.

Katy Ellis, Head of Freshtracks Holidays, said: “It turns out the wait was worth it and at long last, the Alps have received some much-needed snow. Talk about arriving fashionably late! The fresh blanket brings new opportunities for skiing, and we have spaces waiting to be filled on our late-season trips. From bank holiday breaks to freeride adventures and touring trips, there’s still plenty to keep keen skiers entertained this season. It’s not over until the snow melts and by the looks of things, spring skiing is definitely on the menu!”
