It was my first time traveling to Europe (I'm from Argentina) to ski, and didn't know what UCPA was, so I was hesitant. After the first day, I loved UCPA for the 2 consecutive weeks I stayed. Your week at UCPA: Your week will be divided in 7 days. 4 with instruction, and 3 free (Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday). There...

It is impossible to find anywhere else where you can get full time instruction, equipment hire, lift passes and full board catering for this price. You can eat as much food here as you want, which is a real plus and it's good quality. Everything here is good and I would recommend it, but if I had to moan, I...

Visited UCPA Chamonix- first time I have stayed but will be back next season. Set in the heart of town a 2 minute walk from the ski bus route. 6 man rooms with a shower - compact - clean and warm. Breakfast is a continental with the ability to make a packed lunch which will save a fortune on the...

I have just had a super week in Chamonix with the UCPA team. Great food and amazing value - the team were all so helpful. Special mention for our ski instructor and guide, Julien Bach; he provided an excellent week's skiing, striking the right balance of instruction, safety and adventure. Well done!

Situated close to the centre with a back drop of the Auguille du Midi it is perfectly placed for adventure. Accommodation is clean and the food is great. Lovely bar area and fantastic staff. Couldn't recommend it more!

I understand this is a budget hostel and yes its cheap and cheerful, however looking around Chamonix there are better places to stay for a little bit extra. The hostel is however in a great location town centre is 2 minutes walk away and the bus stop 10 minutes. Accommodation (6 Bed Room) Nothing special and it is very basic...

Having stayed at the UCPA Les Lindars centre in Flaine which was top notch, expectations were naturally running high however, UCPA Cosmiques ended up being more of a disappointment albeit the amazing time we had skiing and meeting new people. The rooms are stock standard with basic bedding and the UCPA staff here were friendlier than those at Les Lindars...

Lovely long weekend spent at UCPA Chamonix. Great food and atmosphere in the centre. Managed to get one of the 'twin' rooms on the top floor - and although basic (as all the rooms at UCPA Centres are), mine had en suite shower and toilet, double bed and oodles of room - if you can it's definitely worth booking a...

Whilst on a trip to the French Alps with school in mid June: we stayed at the UCPA Chamonix. Upon arrival at UCPA, we were introduced to our rooms. My room was quite small but large enough for all of us. The views from rooms on both sides of the corridor offer truly amazing views (especially my friend's room, I...

I have been to UCPA Chamonix in January and really loved the experience. I would go back without hesitation and try to bring friends along.
