- February half term dates now sold out
- Early Easter means chance of better snow conditions for skiing and snowboarding
- Five centres dedicated to family weeks but some now sold out with extra spaces available in both Les Contamines and Serre Chevalier
- Dedicated family weeks with all-inclusive offering starting at £638
Action Outdoors, the UK arm of the not for profit UCPA organisation, with centres across the French Alps offering great value all-inclusive (full board, ski pass, equipment hire, lessons) accommodation, has two dedicated family weeks during the Easter school holidays.
Based in two French ski resorts, Les Contamines and Serre Chevalier, the weeks offer families the chance to experience a ski holiday at some of the lowest prices available for an all-inclusive package in two of the top destinations in the Alps, both with very good late season snow records due to north facing slopes and high altitude slopes.
Spaces are still available in both resorts, and with Les Contamines located close to Chamonix Mont-Blanc, it’s one of the easiest destinations in the Alps to drive to from the UK. Serre Chevalier, in the Southern French Alps has good flight connections from Turin and Grenoble.
The UCPA is the second largest ski school in France and lessons are included in the price and available for beginners up to experts.
Managing Director of Action Outdoors, David Robertson, said:
“Our family weeks always sell out quickly but this year, with Easter being early, we knew they would be more popular than ever. February half-term is sold out now but snow conditions at Easter are shaping up to be the best in years and with it being earlier than normal, we think it will be a great time for a skiing holiday and prices are lower too. Price it all up, I’d be interested to see any skiing holiday that manages to come in at a lower cost and with the fantastic facilities that both UCPA centres offer, we know it’s very hard to beat when a 6 day lift pass in Les Contamines costs €258 (£222) on its own and we include that in our price along with three good meals a day, equipment rental and instruction!”
