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 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). 

These holidays are suitable for more mature and responsible teenagers who are confident travelling alone.

Testimonials

  • The food is to die for too! A good breakfast with the option of a packed or hot lunch is only the start – crepes are often available on return from a hard days skiing followed by a gourmet dinner...
    Elliot B
  • 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...
    Anna R
  • The instructors always push you to go that extra mile – I even managed to go down the mountain backwards last time! – but are totally cool when you’ve had enough and that vin chaud is calling your name. 
    Amelia S
  • I can whole heartedly recommend UCPA to anyone, experienced riders or total novices alike will absolutely love it.
    Richard J
  • 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!
    Ron H
  • Our guide Cyril was absolutely amazing and found us fresh powder tree runs all day, without a hike, when it hadn’t snowed for 15 days
    Oliver P
  • We were always encouraged to push ourselves, quite often going off-piste and attempting things we wouldn’t have previously felt capable of.
    Mary T
  • What I hadn’t realised from my internet research was how brilliant the non-skiing experience in the UCPA centre itself would be – and that was what really made the holiday for me...
