  • If you do it you really won’t regret it. I’ve been on 20 ski trips, and this was the best by far.

    Oliver P
  • It’s hard not to sound like a fanatic about the whole thing, but I’ve vowed to go to UCPA on every ski holiday I ever take in future. You can’t argue with paying half the price of a normal trip, and getting twice as much!
