Vail Resorts and Helly Hansen today announced the renewal of their longstanding partnership, marked by…
The Ski Club of Great Britain’s Freshtracks holiday programme has fully re-launched for the 2022-23 season with over 150 different weeks throughout the winter, starting on November 25, 2022 and running until May 1, 2023.
All Freshtracks holidays are designed to bring like-minded skiers together of similar ability levels and many trips are led by qualified mountain guides and ski instructors. Holidays are popular with solo travellers with many trips sold on a single occupancy basis. There’s a programme dedicated to those skiers over the age of 60 – Peak Experience – that attracts enthusiasts well into their 70’s and sometimes beyond, plus one of the largest choices of off-piste and ski touring holidays on the UK market. But there’s also opportunities for skiers to improve their technique on-piste or in powder snow and there’s some real bucket list trips available too.
All trips for the 2022-23 winter season will be accompanied by a Ski Club of Great Britain Rep.

Katy Ellis, Head of Freshtracks Holidays at the Ski Club of Great Britain, said: “It’s great to see our full programme back up and running again with our usual mix of holidays for all skier ability levels and all ages. With over 150 different packages available we think there’s definitely something for everyone, whether you want to brush up on technique, learn to ski powder or just join like-minded people for a social week on the slopes. Freshtracks holidays can only be taken by Ski Club members, but non-members that haven’t been on a Freshtracks holiday before can join the Ski Club with a one-off 50% discount and take advantage of the huge host of member benefits also available which ends up saving significant amounts of money when purchasing equipment or other products and services from our partners. We can’t wait to get back on the slopes again with our first weeks starting at the end of November”.
