UCPA School/College Packages 

Action Outdoors is the UK Partner of UCPA, a very unique, not for profit, activity holiday company based in France. The UCPA was originally set up more than 50 years ago to make adventure sports and quality coaching more affordable for young people, now more than 250,000 people travel with the UCPA every year. The fully inclusive packages include accommodation, meals, evening entertainment, lift pass, equipment hire and instruction. The not for profit status means the prices are amongst the lowest on the market, which is why the UCPA is number one provider of school/college ski trips in France.

What's Included

The UCPA all-inclusive package works perfectly for UK school/college groups as everything is organised and delivered in-house. Students are accommodated in shared rooms in ‘activity centre’ style accommodation. All meals are freshly prepared by the chefs on the premises and are served ‘buffet style’ in large, sociable dining areas. The UCPA staff deliver a fun and varied entertainment programme especially for the students every evening. Each UCPA centre has an onsite equipment room which provides all ski and snowboard kit and lift passes. The equipment room is open daily so kit can be exchanged easily if required. What makes the UCPA even more unique is that they have their own instructors and guides; all fully qualified through the French system, generally considered the most advanced and difficult system to qualify through. The instruction provided is first class, each individual will be allocated a place in a group of the same ability, so everyone will learn and progress at the right level for them.
