The roles of both Chalet Hosts will be varied and will include all aspects of housekeeping, service and cooking. As well as this, you will be looking after the spa and there is also a car available that you will use for the shopping which you can also use. The accommodation is downstairs, and you will usually have your own room. Occasionally the family bring a nanny with them and during this time, you will share with the other host.
A generous salary (up to £2,000 per calendar month each DOE) plus full package of lift pass, accommodation, ski hire and all meals
Working alongside a Chalet Host, you will be required to cater for up to 14 guests on six nights a week.
On rare occasions the number of guests could increase to 18.
You will work approximately 8 hours a day, usually between 7am to 10.30am and 5.30pm to 10.30pm. You will have 1 day off each week
We have a private and fully commercially equipped kitchen for our chef to work in. While having to work within a generous budget, the chef will have full control of the catering from menu planning and shopping to presentation. You will maintain consistently high standards of cooking and hygiene, whilst producing beautifully presented but above all delicious food.
The ability to think on your feet and take initiative in catering to guests’ needs and questions is very important. Our host would be expected to take time to learn about the resort and services on offer so you can answer any queries knowledgeably and confidently.

The Chef must be passionate about cooking homely food and happy to design his or her own menu within a budget. Although we expect a high level of cooking, we don’t ask our chefs to spend all day in the kitchen, this position is highly sought-after as you will get plenty of time to ski. The food should be a good standard of home cooking, not haute cuisine.
The Chalet host will be professional, presentable and friendly, and their role will involve looking after guests, making them feel welcome and happy in the chalet that will become their home for the week. Your main role will involve maintaining extremely high standards of cleanliness, which will involve daily cleaning throughout the chalet.

As the 18/19 winter season slowly approaches, we start to get more and more fantastic job opportunities coming in for experienced seasonaires across France, Switzerland and Austria and Norway. To be considered for our future ski season roles, please send your CV to be added to our database.
Working a ski season is a fantastic opportunity to further your career within the hospitality industry whilst meeting new people and skiing as much as possible. Ski seasons are suitable for individuals who have good previous hospitality of catering experience, who are hard-working, adventurous, and who aren’t afraid of trying something completely new. You don’t need to be able to ski before starting season work, being in the mountains for a whole winter is the perfect time to learn.
Your package will often include travel, accommodation, food, ski hire, lift pass, and a weekly salary.
