This year there are two fantastic programmes to choose from:

UCPA Family week

All inclusive-package, hassle free ski holidays. Accommodation, meals, lift pass, equipment hire and instruction is all taken care of within the low UCPA price. For children under 7 or adults that would prefer to watch from the side lines, there are reduced price ‘accommodation only’ packages available.

Courses available:

UCPA Family Ski Instruction Includes 4 sessions of 2.5 hours Monday-Friday and is available for adults and children aged 7 and over. Lessons will be broken down into 4 or 5 morning or afternoon sessions throughout the week (usually 1 session per day, except for Wednesday).

UCPA Accomodation only This package for children under 7 years of age and adults that don’t intend on skiing. The package includes accommodation and meals but excludes equipment hire, lift pass and ski instruction. The price is discounted to represent the smaller package. UCPA regret that they are unable to offer a ski package for children aged under 7 years old. Children of this age require special equipment, facilities and a smaller child to instructor ratio which UCPA can’t provide. If you have children under the age of 7 and you would like to introduce them to skiing we highly recommend the ‘Piou Piou’ club run by the French ski school ESF. You must book your child’s place directly with ESF.

UCPA Family- Child aged 2 and under  UCPA do not charge for children under the age of 2 (although there is a small booking charge). You will however be required to bring your own travel cot, high chair and baby stuff with you, this will not be provided by UCPA.

 

To note, UCPA Family week does not provide child care as part of this package. Child care may be available through private nanny services in resort however this would have to be arranged directly.​ Expect to pay around €100 half day and €200 full day. Child care is available through UCPA as part of Family Week Plus programmes (see below for more information).
