Great food from Eric the chef. The biggest creme brulee I've ever seen and some great local specialities. I've done the off piste boarding course here for 2 consecutive years. You get all the gear, transceivers, boards, boots, shovels. A 7 day ski pass. A guide for 4 days. Hardly seen any runs in Chamonix as there is so much off piste. This place is very multicultural and has a good atmosphere. The rooms are basic, sometimes 6 in a room. Bring earplugs! All in all, you can't go wrong. Just remember this is a not-for-profit organisation not a hotel!

I just got back from UCPA Chamonix. Firstly, the pricing is really reasonable. Food was great!! The staffs were friendly and most importantly, the snowboarding instructor was really patient with the beginners. It is a brilliant place to be. The resort is situated at the town. Therefore, at night, one can wander around the town.
Can't wait to go back soon!!

I've just returned from spending a week on an off piste ski course with UCPA chamonix. I have to say that it was a fantastic experience, the staff and organisation of the UCPA was very good, very friendly and helpful at all times and the extra effort by everyone to make new years evening meal etc special was brilliant. the guiding and instruction on the course was also really good and my skiing has improved as a result. UCPA chamonix is most definitely good value for money, as long as you aren't worried about mucking in then you'll have a great time and meet some amazing people, thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Arrive early to get a bottom bunk!!!

I spent Christmas there with 30 friends. Everything was awesome.

The staff is super friendly and the place has a nice buzz.It's also a great place to meet people from other countries.The food is excellent.

We enjoyed the dancing,karaoke,board games,quizzes...

The ski instructors are amazing !

We also got passes which gave us unlimited access to the cable cars and the train.

The receptionist even helped us to get a paragliding session.

If I had to describe my stay in one word,I would say - Memorable !

Oh n btw - They all speak English,which is quite a relief !

UCPA Chamonix is one of the great UCPA’s in regards to the rooms, food and the rest of the layout! Food was amazing and the staff as friendly as can be! The UCPA is also located conveniently in town close the main attractions of Chamonix. The only thing that put me of at UCPA Chamonix comparing them to other UCPA’s that I have been is the fact that the Chamonix Valley is stretched out and one have to have a considerable hike to the closest ski area or you have to catch a bus that is usually cramped up with other punters. I would say if you are heading all the way out to Le Tour to ski down the Swizz side of the mountain at the end of the day and catch the train back, so much more convenient! But beside the location comparison to ski area the UCPA is one of the great one’s and I had a blast there meeting loads of new people of similar level that will be hooking up on this years trips again! O, and the instruction for our group could have been better, but I think that might just have our group as lessons at other UCPA’s have always been great!
