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
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.
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.
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!
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.
If you think you can get a whole load of students to join an Action Outdoors ski and snowboard trip, whether you all travel together or individually, then why not think about becoming a Student Ambassador. You can earn yourself free holidays (yes more than 1!) by spreading the word of our packages.
