What makes an Action Outdoors Holiday so good for groups?
Good value really matters if you are taking a large group skiing. The UCPA centres offer amazing value when working on a budget because it is all inclusive; accommodation, meals, lift pass, equipment hire and instruction. The only extra costs to consider are your travel and beer money.
The accommodation at UCPA is simple, clean, comfortable, warm and have plenty of storage space. Food is excellent, cooked on-site by French chefs, always a great choice and as much as you can eat. Ski and snowboard instruction is by French qualified instructors, generally considered the best in the world. Equipment hire is all in-house and 50% is replaced every year meaning you are always provided with quality modern kit without any hassle.
The UCPA offers instructed groups covering all levels from complete beginner to expert level off piste guiding. Each person will be allocated a group at the right level for them, ensuring everyone enjoys themselves and progresses quickly throughout the week. Of course there is a non instructed option for those who prefer to ride at their own pace.
We are fully licensed by ATOL so can arrange flight packages. We run coaches every week from the UK to the Alps so can offer you a great price, even if your group does not completely fill a coach. We can help with the train or advise with self drive. The decision is yours!
A UCPA holiday is the most convenient way for a group to organise a ski or snowboard trip. Forget separate apartments, cramming into restaurants, splitting bills, traipsing across town for ski hire and long queues at at the lift pass office. Everybody stays in the same building and your group will be allocated rooms sharing together. Your lift pass is provided when you check in and the equipment hire room is in the basement of the centre, making getting ready for the slopes much easier. Meals are buffet style so there is plenty of choice to suit everyone and large dining tables makes it perfect for big groups to all eat together comfortably.
Each UCPA centre has a bar on site where everyone can meet for an apres ski beer or a drink before dinner. The staff organise a program of activities and entertainment each week including stretching sessions, pub crawls, karaoke and pub quizzes. We are more than happy to help organise or advise on outside activities your group might enjoy such as ice-skating, bob-sleigh, bar crawl, snow shoeing, ice climbing.
