UCPA Youth Programmes

Arguably no one has the same natural ability, confidence and pure enthusiasm for skiing and snowboarding as teenagers do, and no one understands this quite like the UCPA. That is why the UCPA has introduced ski and snowboard programmes especially for young independent travellers aged 16-17.  The Youth Programmes have various different options allowing teenagers to escape to the Alps, either with mates or alone, for a week training with UCPA. Whether you are under 18 checking out your options or are a parent helping plan a holiday for your child, you have come to the right place. The UCPA has a very young, relaxed and fun atmosphere making it the perfect environment for teenagers and young adults. The all-inclusive package, sociable atmosphere and professional coaching makes the UCPA Youth Programmes the best value ski and snowboard holidays for under 18s.

The All-Inclusive Ski & Snowboard Package

The UCPA Youth Programme price includes:

7 nights accommodation in hostel style accommodation

Breakfast, lunch and dinner

6.5 days lift pass

6.5 days equipment hire

23 hours of ski or snowboard coaching

There are different levels of instruction for anyone who has skied for at least 1 week previously, right up to expert level off piste courses, for those keen to explore the backcountry. Everything is included in the price so only minimal spending money is required. Please note there is not an Action Outdoors rep onsite. These programmes are run by the UCPA staff with very limited supervision.

Youth participants are generally treated as adults throughout the week and there is not usually supervision in the evenings or during 'free' (unsupervised) ski sessions. These holidays are therefore only suitable for more mature and responsible teenagers who are confident travelling alone.

  • Most centers are “ski-in” and the nearest lift is only 100m away. They are almost all in a town centre for easy drinking access. Some are further out but cheaper as a result.
