Action Outdoors, the UK arm of the not for profit UCPA organisation, continues to expand its programme as it offers family skiing holidays across 6 resorts during the peak school holiday weeks of the season.
Whilst these dates traditionally command the highest prices during the winter for most tour operators, Action Outdoors offers the same rate (or in some cases less) than any other week of the season. This makes a family skiing holiday with Action Outdoors incredible value when you compare the overall costs of a family skiing holiday in the Alps.
A family holiday in the French resort of Serre Chevalier during the Easter school holidays costs £692pp including accommodation, three meals per day all week including huge buffet lunches and dinner, a full lift pass for the week, ski equipment rental and instruction.
When purchased separately, the cost of a six day adult lift pass is around £270pp, then add ski hire and instruction on top of that and lunches then it’s easy to see the kind of value offered by the UCPA.
Managing Director of Action Outdoors, David Robertson, said: “Our family ski holidays always sell out quickly but this winter we have more spaces than ever. Popular peak season weeks such as Christmas, New Year and Easter in our selected resorts are dedicated purely for families only. Serre Chevalier is one of the most popular destinations, especially during the spring when the outdoor swimming pool provides a great après ski experience for the kids. The UCPA does offer the best value family skiing holidays in the big French resorts that can be expensive, whatever way you break the costs down, it would be very difficult to make it work out for less”.
