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.

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.

Tignes | Snowboard Half Time

This was my fifth UCPA trip via Action Outdoors.  And each time I booked I hardly had any issues.  If I had any questions, Action Outdoors emailed back very swiftly with helpful answers.  The only thing that I could make a point on this trip was that we weren't told of any transfer details from the airport to the resort until I had to call the bus operators (Ben's buses in this case) directly.  All the other times, we were texted the transfer details and didn't have much of a problem.  The info on Action Outdoors page was very thorough and informative.  The only point I could make on the website is that when we try and log in to our group page by logging in as opposed to clicking the link from the email, it was quite difficult to locate it, in fact I don't think I ever located the group page by logging in - I think I had to search for my Action Outdoors email each time to click the link.

Tignes | Snowboard Full Time

Where do I start. Excellent from start to finish. The value for money is uncanny. I stayed in Tignes at the UCPA resort. From the moment I stepped of the plane it was seamless. The UCPA chalet was really good value for money and just as I expected. Unfortunately I was injured on my second day. The tuition I had up until that point was 1st class. The staff at the resort were so helpful and knowledgeable. I called a outdoor activities representative whilst abroad and they were very sympathetic and helpful and their response and expertise made my claim seamless. All in all I was injured but still has a memorable holiday. Thank you thank you action outdoors. I will be booking with you again and cannot sing you praises enough to my friends.

Tignes | Beginners Ski Full Time

First time on a pair of skis for me and I had a brilliant time! The centre was perfect - ski to the door, great facilities and friendly staff. As for the skiing, I couldn't believe how quickly we all progressed! We moved from snow plow on the baby slope on day one to parallel turns on a blue run on day 4 and finished the week with what seemed like a giant leap into an airbag in the snowpark! I just need to get booking my next trip with action outdoors for Christmas. I'm very pleased that I opted for the full time lessons, I was able to take a couple of sessions out to ski with friends - a perfect combo.

  • 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.

  • Lunch and dinner were epic. Buffet style with delicious and varied options each day and night. Not cheap foods either - Full roast chickens, ribs, roast beef, etc. Unreal!

  • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc. We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.

  • The food is PHENOMENAL at UCPA – brilliant for those with eyes bigger than their belly.

  • The lift pass is amazing. It didn’t cover just Tignes, but all of Espace Killy. The pass alone was 228 euro if bought on its own.
