Good to know
Not your regular hostel, this holiday centre is run by UCPA who offer affordable, all-inclusive activity holidays in Val Thorens. Set smack bang in the middle of the pistes at 2175m, this centre offers truly ski in/out accommodation whilst only being 15 minutes on foot from the resort itself.
The UCPA in Val Thorens is easily identifiable due to its eye-catching circular design and slopeside location. It has a large sunny terrace with deckchairs and tables and stunning views of the resort and surrounding mountains
Rooms are sold on a multi-share basis and sleep up to 4 people. Bathroom facilities for these rooms are communal but the centre also has a number of en-suite twin rooms available for a small supplement if you would prefer to have a bit more privacy. These are very popular though and tend to get booked first. Sleeping up to 380 people in total, this is a great accommodation choice for a large group of friends or a sports club looking to keep costs reasonable.
The UCPA staff lay on a low key entertainment programme each week for the enjoyment of guests and there is also a residents bar and a nightclub on site. The resort centre itself is only a 15 walk away where there is a great selection of bars & nightclubs to suit all tastes. Be aware that the walk to/from town can be a little treacherous in icy conditions as you will be crossing the pistes. However, when you can even rent and service your skis/boards on site, you'll just have no reason to leave the premises except to ski!
