UCPA Family Ski Holidays

We fully appreciate the sheer costs involved in treating your family to a ski holiday in the Alps, especially if you have more than one child. Costs escalate quickly when you consider meals, lift passes, equipment hire and ski instruction for the whole family. Unfortunately for many although a lovely idea, it’s simply just not an option. This is where UCPA comes to the rescue!

How are UCPA Family Ski Holidays so low cost?

UCPA is a very unique adventure holiday company. It is a not for profit organisation aimed at making outdoors sports and quality coaching available and affordable. They offer incredibly low priced all-inclusive holiday packages which include accommodation, meals, lift pass, equipment hire and instruction. UCPA has activity centres in some of the most prestigious Alpine resorts. The accommodation varies between resorts but can best be described as somewhere on the scale between nice youth hostel and basic hotel. The centres are warm, clean, relaxed sociable and fun places to be.

Are there different packages available?

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.
