UCPA Youth Programmes

Arguably no one has the same natural ability, confidence and pure enthusiasm for sport as teenagers do, and no one understands this quite like the UCPA. The Youth Programmes have various different options allowing teenagers to escape to France, either with mates or alone, for a week sport 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 ​activity 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 to suit all abilities from absolute beginner 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 and supervised by UCPA staff. The level of supervision depends on the course booked (see below). 

There are two options for under 18s; the Youth Ski or Snowboard Programme suitable for young people aged 15-17 and the Youth Courses, a less supervised option allowing 16-17 year olds join selected adult programmes. These holidays are suitable for more mature and responsible teenagers who are confident travelling alone.
