My first trip with UCPA went to Val Thorens in France. Travelling with UCPA was for me a whole new experience, a positive one. The whole concept of travel, accommodation, meals, ski hire and lift passes and ski instructor feels very affordable. The accommodation and food is perhaps not top-notch … but it’s skiing that is prioritized. And to borrow good equipment, suited to my skiing, and a whole week with a great ski instructors is fantastic.
The first day out on the slopes is called harmonization day. All participants are divided into groups according to their own desired level. During the day, the ski instructor observes how everyone skies and that everyone is on the same level. In other case, you change to a group that better fits. This picture was taken during harmonization day and the people in the image was going down the hill one by one while the instructor observed how they skied, and what speed they felt comfortable.
