    Keeping it Fresh

    UCPA Speedride.jpgWhy not learn something new? It's easy to become jaded, sticking to the same sports at the same level. David Robertson, Director of Action Outdoors has skied for 15 years, but earlier this year, tried a completely new ski experience - Speedriding. It's a mix of off-piste skiing and paragliding with a small, about ¼ sized, wing. He was nervous at the thought of going airborne but at the end was walking around with a permanent grin on his face. Check out the video.

    "For me it was a great week to remind myself of what Action Outdoors & UCPA are all about - learning new sports, pushing your limits, socializing with great people, relaxing with a glass of wine, eating some great food and generally having a good time." David Robertson

    Speedriding isn't for everybody! Other instructional programs available at all levels whether you want to learn your first few turns on a board, master off-piste powder or learn how to perform in the half pipe then make this the year you get to the next level. Ski programs. Snowboard programs.

    Christmas SnowBlast 2009

    FFL_fireworks_christmas2.gifChristmas in the Alps is a once in a lifetime experience, join us for Snowblast, and we will ensure it's a good one! Avoid the expensive in-resort costs like liftpasses and ski rental with the UCPA exclusive all inclusive price at one of the most comfortable properties in our programme; UCPA Flaine Lindars.

    The rooms sleep 2 or 4 persons, are fully ensuite, and just 100m walk to the lifts. The Flaine ski area is totally connected to The Grand Massif with 265km of trails and will keep any level of skier or snowboarder happy for a full week on the snow!

    Christmas in France means the biggest celebrations are on Christmas Eve. Traditional hot mulled wine is served on the slopes at "apres-ski", followed by a torch-lit descent on the mountain and spectacular fireworks after sunset... Prices from £465 all-inclusive

    New Year Trips

    Anyone who's "seen in the bells" at a ski resort knows just how good it is. What better way to kick off the New Year with a bunch of mates whilst having a full on week of skiing & boarding. The New Year celebrations start off in UCPA centre with a 4-course banquet (included in price)... then over to you but save some energy for skiing the next day as lifts are open as usual!

    For the New Year week only our coaches will be leaving London at 14:00 on Saturday 26th December, instead of the normal Friday night departure. As soon as we arrive in resort early Sunday morning, we check-in and start skiing - so you don't miss out on any time on the slopes.
