Unlike most other mountain festivals, where you have to book your accommodation separately we are offering one great price – accommodation, food and lift pass all included!

UCPA Alpine Base Camp Chamonix is our home once again for the 2014 Festival.

The UCPA is in a beautiful old granite building in the centre of Chamonix. It’s within walking distance of the town’s transport system, lifts as well as bars and restaurants. Its large common rooms and bar will be our base camp for the duration of the Chamonix Mountain Festival 2014. (For other accommodation options see bottom of the page.)

You can find useful links for flights, trains, buses, car sharing and transfers on the travelling to Chamonix page.

Please note that most rooms at the UCPA are shared and we cannot guarantee twin or double rooms. If you would like more comfort, or if you need a private room for work reasons, please use our option to register without lodging and lift pass. You can then book your hotel separately.

We recommend either Hotel L’Héliopic or Hotel Gourmets.
Hotel-Spa L’Héliopic is one of the latest upscale additions to Chamonix hospitality scene and is located within easy walking distance of the town centre and the UCPA. The hotel offers our participants a preferential price (twin/double room 130€/night) for bookings during the Festival period. To take advantage of the discount, any reservations need to be made by email at

Hotel Gourmets sits just across the road from the UCPA. The location of both makes it easy to really be part of the Festival (dinners at UCPA with all other participants are included in the registration fee).

The hotels do not offer lodging + lift pass packages but you can buy your lift pass directly from Compagnie du Mont Blanc online or on arrival.
