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... More

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. I am from Montreal and wanted to get a taste of skiing in the Alps. The reader of this review must always take into account the price\quality ratio which is excellent at UCPA as it... More

Spent a week at this UCPA, skiing some great ski areas Flegere, les Houches and Grand Montets, ski pass and instruction and full board (sandwich lunch you make yourself). Eric the French chef is a legend and cooks excellent meals. Once you get over the shock of sharing a dorm with up to 5 others and doing your share of... More

This was my second snowboarding holiday with UCPA and it was even better than the first one in Tignes, in 2013. The hostel is very well organized. My boyfriend and I stayed in a twin room which had a shower, so that was great as we didn't have to share our shower with anyone. The bedroom was quite spacious and... More

This is a very nice travel concept. UCPA offers a complete ski vacation to a very low price. The rooms are simple but functionally, Breakfast is to simple for me and you make your own lunch bag to eat in the slope, dinner is good! In the price for the vacation everything is included. Room and 3 meal per day,... More

The UCPA is run as a not-for-profit organisation, if you want to benefit from the amazing value for money trips that they facilitate then you need to know not to expect a hotel. You need to appreciate that you yourself are part of the concept. By helping out you keep the cost down. If you like to socialise with many... More

Very rude service at reception. No Wifi, but happy for you to pay for it! Instructor that didn't instruct. Felt more like a boot camp than a fun holiday. Food was great. Staff were very disappointing, like they were doing you a massive favor, but you're paying for the holiday and in my case it was the only holiday I... More

I recently did a week here. For anyone who's never holidayed with UCPA before, it's quite unique. The all-inclusive package holiday bundles lodging, full board, equipment hire, all-access ski passes, full-time lessons, transportation and entertainment for one insanely low price. From the moment of arrival, the staff at UCPA made us feel welcome. They were just opening up for the... More

Thought i should write a review having stayed here twice in a row, booked through action outdoors which is just the best service. First time was with friends second time i was alone but this didn't make a difference, the UCPA is right in the center and has great views of Mont Blanc. The pickup from the airport was great...

As I am a new snowboarder I took advantage of the classes offered by UCPA, done one day as a beginner and then intermediar and by the end of the week I was happy on the red slopes ! Just one thing to mentions, I believe there is a gap between beginner class and intermediar, as the beginner class was... More
