Thanks, UCPA Val d'Isère. There I learnt how to ski and also put 3 other friends stand and skiing.
I went by a recommendation of a French friend of mine. I could not speak much French at that time. It was never a problem...
At UCPA they provide you full time ski lessons, material, 4 meals and accommodation... all for EUR 450/500!!!!!
I spent NEW YEAR'S EVE there for that price. How does that sound?
It was so great that I trained the whole season and came back the next year actually to teach ski to 3 friends of mine.
Amazing experience... amazing food... amazing bread... amazing meals...
Rooms are VERY simple. No free Internet. Not a great comfort. Shared bathrooms. But you are there TO SKI.
And you are sleeping in the biggest and best ski resort worldwide, for this price.
People are amazing. Staff is outstanding.
