Prices for our week long winter holidays are Saturday to Saturday. They automatically include the UCPA early arrival option enabling you to ski all day on Sunday as both the lift pass and equipment are available to use. Please contact the office if you would prefer to stay Sunday to Saturday.

Summer holidays are Sunday to Saturday. This is due to your equipment not being available until Sunday evening but there is the option to arrive on Saturday if you would like.

All prices include:

  • Accommodation in Multi Share rooms (extra for twin)
  • All Meals (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)
  • Equipment rental
  • Instruction/Guide
  • Lift passes, or any other cost related to your activity course (hut nights, green fees, entry charges etc)

In fact, the only extra costs are transport, travel insurance and a few social beers!


  • UCPA is a unique and brilliant experience, I would not describe it as a hotel but also not hostel it is somewhere in-between. Its a place where meeting people and making friends...

  • The food offers great variety, choice (several options each night), quantity (as much as you want) and quality is decent (7/10). Cheese and yoghurts coming out of your ears, packed lunch option, afternoon...

  • We all appreciate that we are inside one of those perfect moments, heightened by the expectation of another afternoon riding the perfect, untracked powder that our instructor...

  • 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.

  • The food is PHENOMENAL at UCPA – brilliant for those with eyes bigger than their belly.
