Specialist Ski Courses

UCPA offers a number of specialist courses for adrenaline lovers people who want to hone skills beyond regular skiing. Hit he park, fly with a parachute or smash down a race course. Really take your skiing to a new level!

Speed Riding

A cross between paragliding & skiing - very full on! UCPA provide all the kit plus instructors (dual qualified ski & paragliding). Your ski level needs to be advanced (comfortable off-piste) and you need to have a good thirst for adventure. We have a beginner level course for those who are completely new to the sport plus an intermediate level for those who have done at least 1 week before.

Free Style Skiing

A week of coaching in the snow park - obviously you need to be a good skier already plus an interest in gymnastics or trampolining will help enormously.

Competition Skiing

A week spent bashing the gates and improving your slalom or giant slalom techniques. Very useful if you are either competing at club level, or thinking of working towards your EuroTest for ski instructor exam.

Les Arcs |

Firstly I would definitely recommend Action Outdoors. This is the 5th ski holiday I have been with them and they have always been very helpful even when I have had to change details of members of my party or cancel a person's booking who couldn't go.

La Plagne |

I went to La Plagne in jan on a solo holiday. I was a bit nervous about meeting a load of strangers and was my first time skiing too! Well I needn't have worried. Keryn our rep made us feel really welcome and brought us all together. The UCPA centre was fab. Clean, warm and great food. The views up the piste were just gorgeous. I could not fault the holiday at all. Well organised, safe and loads of fun. I would definitely book through action outdoors again. Thanks guys. I've a new love for skiing :-)

Tignes |

I spent the New year in Tignes at the UCPA and had an amazing time. It was my first time at UCPA but do enamoured that I immediately booked a second trip for February.

Serre Chevalier | Ski Full Time Instruction

I went to Serre Chevalier in February. The centre was good, pleasant bar area and reasonably sized double rooms. The instructors weekly jump show into the swimming pool was a highlight.

Tignes |

I recently stayed at the Tignes (Val Claret) UCPA centre and had the best weeks skiing ever. I booked through the Action Outdoors website which was pretty straight forward. This was my first time in a UCPA centre and I was travelling with my girlfriend and four friends – a mix of skiers and boarders ranging in experience from complete beginner to ex-seasonaires. On arrival after a long coach journey we were greeted by a cheerful and  welcoming team at the UCPA centre who gave us the lowdown on the arrival procedures. The centre was extremely well organised and helpful staff made the task of checking in/booking onto lessons/collecting lift pass and equipment so much easier than I have experienced in any other resort.

  • No matter how hard you try, when you book everything separately (especially with the Euro and price of food at the moment), you will never beat UCPA.

  • The best thing about this holiday was the people I met! Everyone loved skiing/snowboarding/being outdoors, so we had a lot in common already.

  • It’s not just a ski trip, it’s a chance to experience another way of life. I can drink coffee by the bowlful, which feels SO right, practise my rusty French as much I like and eat great food.

  • The chef at the canteen always tried their hardest to provide varied yet nutritional dishes. The meatballs were simply to die for!!!

  • UCPA is a totally unique set-up, providing both a top-level skiing service and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy yourself.

  • It’s hard not to sound like a fanatic about the whole thing, but I’ve vowed to go to UCPA on every ski holiday I ever take in future. You can’t argue with paying half the price of a normal trip, and getting twice as much!
    Oliver P
  • In my opinion, UCPA should really stand for something like ‘Unbelievably Cheap, Perfectly Awesome’ because it really is the best way to see the French Alps on a budget.  Or not even on a budget for that matter, because the enthusiasm of the instructo...

  • The instructors always push you to go that extra mile – I even managed to go down the mountain backwards last time! – but are totally cool when you’ve had enough and that vin chaud is calling your name.
