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 are recruiting now with face to face interviews being held in London between 8th and 11th of October or over Skype at a mutually convenient time up until 3rd November 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

  • Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay last week in Chalet Barthelemy. We both had an excellent Christmas. The chalet was as great as we remembered and the food was excellent in both taste and presentation and could not be faulted. Please pass on our feedback and thanks to Mike and Keisha.

  • Everything was perfect, the chalet, location, and communication. Pete and Pat were absolutely fantastic hosts and the food was amazing. (Jeanette Panayi, Jan 2019)
  • We have just returned from a stay in Chalet Hermine our hosts were Cat and Clive. It was our first experience of staying in a catered chalet and it was truly fabulous we had such an amazing time. We had welcome drinks with our hosts on the first evening and Cat asked us all our names, the following morning she greeted us all individually at breakfast considering there was 11 of us I was really impressed!! The food was amazing and perfect after a full day of skiing, especially the lamb tagine this was awesome! Cat and Clive could not do enough to help and made us feel so welcome. I would definitely use this chalet again and would recommend your chalets, the location could not have been better and having such great hosts just made the experience really special.

  • We would like to say our stay with you last week was excellent. The hosts were lovely and really great cooks, they made us feel relaxed and at home. We transferred from Genève with Mountain Rescue who also gave a brilliant service. I would definitely recommend both you and them to friends travelling in the area in the future. In fact, I met an old colleague at Geneva airport and gave her your company name as they ski every year in that area. We wish you all the best with your company for the future and sure it will go well. (Sue Collinge, 4th Feb 2019)
  • We cannot praise your Chalet Chanterelle highly enough. Booking our stay and the changes we requested were made very smoothly. Your staff were welcoming and friendly as was the chalet atmosphere. Warm cosy, clean and comfortable, we were very impressed. The food was great and much appreciated after a long drive. The Chalet location is ideal and free parking too. Having enjoyed our stay so much we will most definitely be back. We can hand on heart highly recommend Chalet Chanterelle. Thanks Guys, in particular thanks to Chris who is a star.
