Employment Winter Season


We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic chalet couples to be the heart and soul of one of our 3 catered chalets in the French Alps. Couples must be established enough to be able to work closely with each other for the whole winter season (December to April).

You will be ambassadors of Ski Hiver so you must always be approachable, possess common sense and a high level of customer service. We are a small family-run business with a hands-on approach to supporting our team, but you must also be able to problem solve at short notice and work on your own initiative.

We are not looking trained chefs, but you must have a passion for cooking, are aware of dietary requirements with proven experience of hosting large groups up to 22. We love our food so we will make sure to try your best recipes during the recruitment process!

Each couple must be able to support each other in hosting our guests, be highly organised and possess a positive attitude and outlook towards maintaining the chalet to high standards: daily maintenance and weekly complete change over on Saturdays.

Duties include:

  •        Set-up breakfast, daily cake, complete dinner service in the evening
  •        Maintaining strict hygiene and health and safety levels.
  •        Daily cleaning of communal areas and weekly cleaning of chalet on changeover day
  •        Clearing snow and ice from pathways to maintain a safe place to walk
  •        Any ad hoc duties that may arise

Working hours cover breakfast, morning baking time and dinner so you will have plenty of time to enjoy the snow!

We offer a UK contract, competitive salary, 2 days off per week, accommodation, meals, ski passes, equipment hire, health and ski insurance and holiday pay for the entire season. You must be eligible to work in the UK without restriction.

We recruit with face to face interviews held in London or over Skype at a mutually convenient time usually until end of October so please send us your CVs for consideration.

Working for Ski Hiver

Working for us is not like working for the bigger companies - we interview you directly and we support you on a regular basis during the season as we also live in resort. 

However, we do like our staff to work independently wherever possible using their initiative and oodles of common sense. You must be flexible, hardworking, not get flustered easily and most importantly, keep a smile on your face at all times as running a ski chalet doesn't always go according to plan!

We do a week of chalet training prior to letting you loose so there will be plenty of time to iron out any concerns or queries and also to test drive the menu and add your suggestions. Working in a ski chalet can be very rewarding especially if you have a real passion for cooking and hosting dinner parties and, just as importantly, a passion for skiing, snowboarding and mountain sports!

If you would like to know more about the positions available below please contact us direct. If you would like to apply, please send your CV together with a covering letter and a 6 day menu (veggie option too!) to bookings@skihiver.co.uk

  • "Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay last week. We absolutely loved the chalet, great location! Also wanted to mention how incredible Rosie and Jake were, the food was outstanding and both were brilliant with our son Arlo. We enjoyed it so much that we are thinking about coming back in Feb / March." (Ali Bovis, Caribou, Dec 2019)
  • “I can tell you on behalf of the group that we had an excellent stay and were extremely well looked after by Cat and Clive. They were very attentive to our needs and nothing was too much trouble. The chalets are perfectly positioned for the skiing and village, plus very well appointed. We have had a boys January week in Montchavin every year for the last 10+ and will no doubt be returning in 2021. I will most certainly contact you in the autumn to discuss the next trip.” (Martyn Pacey, Hermine, Jan 2020)
  • “We had a fantastic time. Really couldn’t have asked for better. Pat and Pete were fantastic hosts, and really looked after our every need. They were great to have around; they provided a wealth of knowledge on the area and where to ski and were only too happy to answer our million questions pertaining to every other aspect of skiing in Montchavin. The food was of a great standard, and we honestly enjoyed (aka loved) every meal. The chalet was really nice and clean. This experience was certainly one of our best ski trips ever.” (Tessa Kershaw, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful chalet. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montchavin, and in your apartment with Pete and Pat. Pete and Pat were awesome, and the food was superb. We had a great time, and will spread the word this side. (Chris Cooke, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • We had the most amazing week at Christmas this year. The chalet was great, the other guests were brilliant company, the skiing was awesome, the food was fabulous and Pete and Pat were the perfect hosts. As far as ski holidays go, we don't know how it could get any better! (Kevin Smith, Lievre Blanc, Dec 19)
