UCPA Family ski holidays for the 2024-25 winter season go on sale

Action Outdoors, the UK arm of the not for profit UCPA holiday organisation, has launched its new 2024-25 winter season family holidays in 6 French ski resorts.

The holidays have gone on sale this week to the general public after being offered first to previous UK customers of the UCPA – some holidays have already sold out but there’s still plenty of availability across Christmas, New Year, February half term and Easter dates.

Like all UCPA holidays, they are all inclusive with accommodation, meals including breakfast, lunch and dinner, full area lift pass, ski or snowboard equipment hire and instruction, included in the price.

Break that price down and it’s very clear to see the value the UCPA offers families.

UCPA centres include bar and restaurant facilities and they have their own in-house ski school, the second largest in France. Family accommodation is in a family room, typically with a bunk bed style set up and often an en-suite bathroom, but not always. The food is a very important part of the UCPA’s offer, with extensive buffets for lunch and dinner and choices for meat, fish and vegetarians, healthy options, cheese boards and desserts. Skiers and snowboarders can rent their equipment within the centres own hire shops, with everything included in the package price they pay.

David Robertson, Managing Director of Action Outdoors, said: “Our family holidays have become more and more popular over the years and we have expanded the number of resorts and dates as much as we possibly can. If we had more space we would fill it! Still, we feel it’s important to spread the word about the best value family ski holidays out there, because more and more families that want to ski are finding it difficult due to rising costs both at home and through traditional tour operators. It’s not hard to see the value in the UCPA price though, break it down and try to find another way to do a holiday with accommodation, meals, lift pass, equipment rental and instruction for even close to that”.
