Ok first thing first - this is a hostel so don't except it to be 4* accomodation. However it is quite simply the most frienly place I've ever stayed, the rooms are shared so you quickly get to know the other people if you don't speak much French or Swedish you'll soon find a way to chat. Fairly soon you'll... More

Since it was my first ski trip, I didn't know what to expect. My overall experience at UCPA Argientere was tops! Check in went smoothly, they provide you a pamphlet which contains general information like checkout, storage rooms, your room code etc. You had to fill in a card for your gear rental, a transport pass and the ski lifts/gondola...

I took part in the Full time lessons they provide as part of their package and was a complete beginner (had never skied before). The instruction was amazing, our instructor was called Olivier and was very patient with us but at the same time pushed us quite... More

I found the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, had a fantastic snowboard instructor and entertainments manager and made lots of friends. This is a really good value for money... More

This is the only UCPA that I have stayed in, but was good enough to make me book another UCPA Ski holiday for 2012! The rooms are basic but warm and comfortable, with plenty of space to store your kit. Our group did get divided into a boys' and Girls' room (on the same corridor) so probably worth letting them...

Very friendly and helpful staff at the centre, great locationq and the guides were great. I met lots of really good people. The building itself is quite old and could probably do with a little updating in places (dirty carpets in bedrooms) but importantly there were good hot showers. Secure lockers in the bedrooms would have been handy. There was... More
