About UCPA and Action Outdoors

Action Outdoors is the UK Partner of UCPA, a French not for profit organisation offering affordable all inclusive ski and snowboard holidays to top French resorts.  Having discovered “how the French go skiing” Action Outdoors was formed to introduce the British to the UCPA concept; prestigious resorts, excellent instruction, comfortable accommodation, abundance of food, great quality equipment and a sociable and fun atmosphere at a fraction of the cost of comparative holidays.  With the average price just £640 for a week long all inclusive package, including lift pass and equipment hire, they are undoubtedly amongst the cheapest ski and snowboard holidays on the market.  A number of non instructed packages are available however most UCPA packages include instructed and guided ski and snowboard courses.  Whether you are an absolute beginner wishing to learn or an expert ski mountaineer searching for high mountain thrills there are courses to suit everyone’s level.  It’s not hard to see why the French are renowned as such excellent skiers and snowboarders!
