Our Story

How it all started…

UBSki was founded in 1988 by two fraternity brothers attending the University of Texas at Austin. The goal then was to take fraternity brothers and friends on a College Spring Break trip they would never forget at a great price. Having successfully completed their mission, word about the trip spread and UBSki quickly grew to become one of the largest and most popular Winter and Spring Break trip providers in the country.

How we became #1…

Under the continued leadership of company founder, Phillip Cohen, UBSki currently delivers college students across the country with the ultimate “College Ski & Board Week” experience. With options including slope-side luxury accommodations, discounted lift tickets, ski and board rentals and lessons, air or bus transportation, on-site customer service, free beer parties, and a variety of destinations and date options to choose from. UBSki has set itself apart from the others by adhering to its original objective of providing college students with an affordable Winter or Spring Break trip they will never forget!

By maintaining offices near the University of Texas and developing extensive partnerships with campus reps, college ski clubs, fraternities, sororities, and other campus organizations nationwide, UBSki maintains a pulse on the wants and needs of college students. UBSki is widely known across college campuses as “the ski company with the best prices, best condos and best service.”
