UCPA Ski/Snowboard - No Instruction £565 

3 Valleys Lift Pass

Most of the instructed courses include 2 or 3 days with the 3 Valleys lift pass as part of the package. However, you can upgrade your lift pass on those days when it is not included. It costs €28 / day to upgrade to the 3 Valleys pass (this price is the sum of the discounted Val Thorens lift pass and the difference of the two passes). Speak to the reception when you are in resort to arrange this.

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!


Val Thorens | A La Carte

Val Thorens is Europe’s Highest ski resort, it also seems to be the hilliest if that makes any sense.

Val Thorens | Student Half Time Instruction

Having been on several Action Outdoor holidays before, myself and my friend knew what was what, though never to Val Thorens before it was another exciting adventure for us.

La Plagne, Val d'Isere, Val Thorens, Chamonix | Ski Full Time, Ski Off Piste

The UCPA system offered by Action Outdoors was so good that I spent seven weeks in four different resorts with them in 2013. I started as a very basic skier and went all the way to completing an off piste course in that time. Everything about the experience was top rate. The instruction was excellent. The food was delicious with plenty of it. The vibe and philosophy at the UCPA centers was totally compelling. It was a truly unigue experience and there is no way on earth that anyone could match them for value for money.Action Outdoors proved themselves a very helpful and friendly organisation in managing my whole trip.  I will never ski with anybody else ever again. This is the real deal. Thank you UCPA and Action Outdoors.

Val Thorens | Beginners Full Time

As a first time skier, I had an amazing holiday through Action Outdoors. The price was unbelieveable with all expenses that it covered considered and all the poeple, both workers at our resort and also other holiday goers, were really easy going and I had a brilliant time the entire week and will recommend this to friends & family

Val Thorens | Ski Full Time Instruction

Good resort:
nice atmosphere, excellent food, convenient to come back and go skiing, friendly staff

Val Thorens | Snowboard Beginner

If you haven't booked yet, you must book now. My boyfriend went on a boys trip to the Chamonix UPCA in March 2012 and was raving about UPCA when we went to Val Thorens in Dec 2012. He soon realised this was just as good. The food was incredible - buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner - I'm sure I put on a few kgs! The resort was ski-in-ski-out so straight on the slopes and the snowboarding was mint too. Good price, good food, good boarding, good accommodation and helpful people. There was nothing missing. Thanks!

Val Thorens | Ski Half Time

Really good all round trip. The hostel is brilliant, has everything you need. Is more than just a hostel but a little less than a hotel, ensuite bathrooms in every room was an added unknown bonus! ski equipment and lessons were really good. part time ski gave us extra time to explore VT. The food at ucpa was much better than had anticipated, great choice, and always enough! Great value for money, and much better than i had anticipated! would recommend to a friend!!
