Nissan in Europe is offering skiers and snowboarders the chance to ski on fresh snow, without the crowds at a handful of leading ski resorts.

This initiative, called Fresh Tracks, will open the slopes early for the first time at four of Europe's ski resorts, to give a select group of people exclusive access to the slopes for up to an hour before they open to the general public.

Nissan's Fresh Tracks can be found in Avoriaz in France, Verbier in Switzerland, Livigno in Italy, and Formigal in the Spanish Pyrennees.

Nissan's Europe Vice President Vincent Wijnen, said: "We've created Nissan Fresh Tracks to allow people to get the feeling of skiing or snowboarding on fresh snow. It's a unique experience that we're sure skiers and snowboarders of all levels will find exciting . . . our Fresh Tracks sessions and coaching program is designed to make people feel safer and more confident on the slopes."

Nissan is also offering free daily coaching clinics, run by a team of professional instructors.

Register at Nissan's website to book a Fresh Tracks experience or coaching clinic. All four resorts are offering Fresh Tracks until the end of the season.
