Nowadays we focus more on the back office things and are looking for enthusiastic, friendly, reliable people to join our team this winter to be the face of our company to ensure our guests have a wonderful holiday experience.

We are a full service chalet and our main aim is to ensure our clients are having a great time and are well looked after in every aspect of their holiday, from their airport transfers to their ski lessons, ski passes, ski hire, ensuring they are served great food and enjoy excellent hygiene standards throughout the chalet.

Finding the right staff is of course vital to ensure all runs as it should and as such we are looking for vibrant people, who are outgoing, hard working, presentable and approachable. They are good at taking initiative, have an eye for detail and willing to go the extra mile to ensure our clients have a wonderful time.

Working for us
We take great pride in the food & wine we serve and as such always employ qualified chefs with recent restaurant experience and a TRUE passion for food as well as of course a passion for the outdoors!

We recognise that in order for the clients to have a good time, you need to be enjoying yourselves. As such, we have created a great package, which includes a very competitive salary, a bonus upon successful completion of the season, mountain insurance and free ski hire.
