UCPA Les Deux Alpes

UCPA Les Deux Alpes is in a fabulous location just 100m from the ski area and a couple of minutes walk from the town centre. The centre is one of the smaller UCPA centres sleeping 168 people. It is a large wood and stone traditional chalet which has all the usual UCPA services including a restaurant, bar, ski shop, social areas and games room. The restaurant is of particular note with a stunning terrace overlooking the Ecrins National Park. Plus it also has a sauna and jacuzzi for those that need a bit of pampering after a hard day on the hill!

Rooms

  • Multishare rooms are 4 or 6 person
  • Twin rooms are available for a small supplement
  • Your group can reserve a quad room for a small supplement, if 4 people are booking together
  • All rooms have shower and sink ensuite with toilets located in the corridor

Rooms come as 4 or 6 bed multishare rooms with twin rooms also available at extra cost. Twin rooms tend to sell out first so you need to be quick. Each room has its own shower and sink ensuite with toilets located just outside in the corridor.

Dining

The food is served buffet style each day.  Breakfast is yogurts, cereals, fruit juice, coffee and bread - don't be surprised to see that the coffee, tea or hot chocolate is taken French style - a soup bowl !  
Typically lunch is a DIY picnic made up at breakfast time (great choice of breads, meats, cheeses, pasta, salad, fruit, sweets etc).  The picnic lunch means maximum time on the mountains without spending a fortune on expensive mountain side restaurants.  If the weather is bad or your group wants an easier day, then you can also return to the centre for a hot lunch (pastas, schnitzels, steaks and chips plus unlimited ice cream).
Dinner is a 4 course buffet - typically a salad bar style starter, choice of 3 or 4 main courses - most often including fish, cheese selection, fruit, dessert and ice-cream  freezer.
Any special dietary requirements should be made known to reception staff at check-in.  Generally vegetarians will find a wide enough choice within the buffet.

Entertainment

The UCPA staff lay on an entertainment program each week.  It's certainly not Butlins and there is no pressure to take part - all quite low key.  Typical program would include stretching in the early evening, crepe making, quiz, sketch evening, karaoke and some evenings a live band.

Equally in the town there is a great selection of bars & nightclubs to suit all tastes.

History

UCPA is more than 40 years old, and was originally set-up by the French government to encourage young people to enjoy the outdoors.  It is now a "not for profit" organisation with all profits being put back into refurbishing the centres.

The ethos of sport is still first on the agenda, but the instructors and centre staff don't forget that it is still your holiday.
