Student Ski & Snowboard Deals

If you're a student, aged 18-25 and would rather spend your trip to the Alps on the mountain riding powder than on an enforced week long drinking session, where you do more apres ski than actual ski, then we've got the perfect package for you. 

The student ski or snowboard packages include:

  • 7 nights multishare accommodation
  • 6.5 days full board (eat as much as you like)
  • 6.5 days lift pass
  • 12 hours instruction
  • All equipment needed for the activity 

Instruction 

The UCPA package includes 12 hours of ski or snowboard coaching. Whether you are an absolute beginner or a freeride hero the UCPA has a level suitable for you. The more experienced riders can take advantage of the instructor's local knowledge and go in search of the best conditions most epic lines. 

Accommodation

The UCPA winter accommodation is no-frills, like very nice hostels. Rest assured all the accommodation is very clean, warm, with plenty of hot water and even boot heaters so you can avoid cold soggy boots in the morning. Depending on the resort you will most likely be sharing with 3 or 4 others. If you bookl with friends UCPA will try and room you together. Solo travellers will always be roomed in sigle sex rooms. 

Meals 

As with all UCPA packages breakfast, lunch and dinner is included. Meals are buffet style so there are loads of options and as much as you can eat! Meals are served in large dining halls so dinner time is always a very sociable time.

Lift Pass and Kit 

Everything at the UCPA is on site, including the ski and snowboard equipment room. When you check in your will receive a ticket so you can collect your equipment and lift pass. The equipment room is usually located in the basement of the centre and operated by really friendly and qualified staff. Every year 50% of the kit is replaced so it's always relatively new and well maintained.  It really couldn't get more convenient! 

Great Value

The UCPA were set up originally to get young people into the outdoors and make the top resorts and quality coaching more accessible to the not so wealthy. Whether you are travelling with mates or travelling alone we are sure you will have a brilliant trip.

You can earn yourself free holidays (yes more than 1!) by spreading the word of our packages.

Testimonials

Read what our clients say about us

  • All UCPAs are very friendly and sociable. The bar and dining areas are open with big tables, encouraging people to sit together and get to know each other. This makes it very easy as a solo traveller.

  • Action Outdoors set up a personal group page and as a group leader, I did’t have to worry about taking everyone’s payments. Each group member is responsible to pay their own way through the group page directly to Action Outdoors. Win!

  • Imagine moules mariniereier, steak (cooked how you like it) and paella just to name a few options during our week and you get a picture of how well fed you will be at UCPA.

  • The UCPA has its own bar which is slightly cheaper than anywhere else in the resort. It has a pool table, comfy seats and a good atmosphere.

  • UCPAs are like an upmarket hostel. However, they are always comfortable and if you want to meet people, the rooms of 4-6 are a great way of doing so. Even better is most of the UCPAs have some twin rooms...

  • Having never used UCPA before I was not sure what to expect but the week I spent there was absolutely fantastic and I genuinely can’t wait to go back.
