If you're starting out or you're pretty experienced, the UCPA is a great place to stay. They provide fantastic accommodation (dorm or private room) , awesome food, great equipment and the staff, instructors and guide are very experienced and good fun. Argentiere is a good location, sleepily village in the chamonix valley higher up. Access to so many slopes and...

I can't ask for a better way to end my 2016. Ski full time instruction for around £600, covering all meals, accommodation, day and night activities! UCPA is a nonprofit with incredibly friendly staff and visitors. Highly recommended! The lodging is very high quality here. Clean, modern and functional. You will have a great time!

UCPA Argentiere was a fantastic base for a week of summer hiking in the Chamonix Valley. My friend and I booked last minute through Action Outdoors - we didn't opt to take one of the week-long courses as we wanted to be able to take the week at our own pace and plan our own hikes, but UCPA represented great...

The UCPA staff; reception, the kitchen, bar, instructors and entertainment team make Argentiere UCPA centre a soulful and warm place. I enjoyed each day, found the instruction to be professional; I learnt a lot. It was my boyfriends birthday during our stay and I e-mailed the centre prior to our arrival to request a cake with candles to be brought...

All you need for a ski trip- clean good room, good food, nice staff, humorous friends. The only negative thing is the sauna which is not of finnish quality, but rather a weak copy of one. But still- there Was a Sauna, which is better than No Sauna!

A newly renovated UCPA. The accommodation was more spacious than most. It's in a skiing and climbing Mecca location. Lots of different resort options for piste, off-piste and ski touring. The food was plentiful, if a little bland. I will stay again!

really enjoyed our stay. Paid extra for a twin room which was well worth it. View of Mont Blanc from our window. Loved the food, it was great being provided with provisions for lunch. The sauna, stretching room and climbing room were all really appreciated perks. Clean communal toilets and showers. Take flip flops. Wifi reception was very poor. Good...

Went on my first trip with UCPA and it happend to be to Argentiére for some skiing. I must say that even though there were many people arriving and staying at the center (about 300) during the week and all either skiing or snowboarding everything worked. The center is well planned for all the visitors. The whole hotel is recently...

My partner and I spent Christmas week at UCPA Argentiere. The hostel is very well appointed. Simple but clean and modern rooms with single or bunk beds. We were sharing a twin room. If you're booking a place in a shared room bring a padlock to lock your valuables in a wardrobe unit. Each room has a sink but bathrooms...

the place is in really good condition as its only been refurbished a year ago. Me and my partner were really impressed with our twin room with a lovely view.

“If you're in a shared room - check in early and grab a bottom bunk - unless you want the exercise. At dinner try everything and check back because new things did seem to appear midway through Get in after a day on the slopes for tea and cake.”
