UCPA Chamonix is closed this summer, but the courses that usually take place at UCPA Chamonix are still running, just based out of UCPA Argentiere instead.

Many of you will miss the legendary Chamonix 'Base Camp' but it will be back!

To book on, just select a 'Chamonix' course as standard, but your trip will actually be taking place in Argentiere UCPA.

Other things to note

For summer mountaineering and trekking courses this year, due to Covid, lodges, refuges and bivouacs in tents must comply with specific rules.

Blankets, duvets or sleeping bags will not be provided outside of UCPA. Every participant on a trip that included one night or more away from the centre (either in a refuge or tent etc.) must bring:

  • A sleeping bag liner
  • A sleeping bag, 10°c rating minimum for a refuge, 5°c minimum for a night in a tent
  • A pillowcase
  • A pair of crocs/sandals/sliders/flip flops
  • An eye mask, soap, alcohol hand wash, a small bin bag
  • Lightweight cutlery, tupperware for food, and a water bottle
