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 know if you would like to share. Showers and toilets were always clean. The food was plentiful and hearty - exactly what you need to keep you fueled on the slopes. We didn't do much of the evening entertainment but there were things on each night. Argentiere is a little quiet and most people who wanted to go out got the bus to Chamonix (10 minutes down the road) but the UCPA bar had a chilled atmosphere for relaxing after a day's skiing. Staff were all friendly and helpful. All in All I'd definitely recommend!
