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 [R587R, Avoriaz] in France, [R484R, Verbier] in Switzerland, [R1326R, Livigno] in Italy, and [R1642R, 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.
