Say hi to Ski Weekends, the latest employer to be joining us this June at the Natives Job Fair! They offer a short break holidays in a range of chalets and hotels in the Alps.

We have teams in a number of resorts in France, within two main areas: Our Northern France staff hub is based in Morzine and Les Gets.

We have a team running our Chalet Gourmets, which sleeps up to 40 guests, in a
fantastic location in the centre of Morzine with easy access to all of the Morzine/Avoriaz ski area. This small, simple, chalet-style hotel has a homely,
welcoming atmosphere and is popular with returning guests.

We also have a chalet for up to 10 guests in Les Gets staffed by a chalet host. Our northern France team includes reps in Morzine and Chamonix, an airport rep and a resort manager, who support customers coming into our own accommodation and external hotels in various resorts in the region. Our Tarantaise hub is based in Brides-les-Bains in the 3 Valleys ski area. A typical Savoyard town which is just a bubble-lift ride away from Meribel, our guests and staff gain all the benefits of the 3 Valleys without the prices!

In Brides-les-Bains we send a large number of guests by coach and flight to the 3* Hotel Verseau, a busy club hotel exclusively available to our guests, Although busiest at weekends the Hotel Verseau operates 7 days a week. We also have a number of smaller chalets in the 3 Valleys, Paradiski all staffed by chalet hosts.

Our team in the Tarantaise is supported by a Resort Manager and rep team based in Brides-les-Bains providing customer support for the hotel Verseau and rep support for our programme of other privately run hotels in the town and surrounding resorts.

If you have an outgoing, enthusiastic personality, love the snow and enjoy hard work then we may be the company for you. We believe that excellent staff are crucial to offering high levels of customer service and we are looking forward to recruiting another great team for the coming winter.

Successful applicants will need to be available from November through to April.

Hotel / Chalet Assistants

Hotel / Chalet assistants are the essential cogs that keep the Club Hotels & Chalets ticking over - from cleaning rooms and making beds to serving breakfast and dinner in the restaurant, maybe even helping out in the busy bar!

Enthusiasm, a friendly outgoing personality and cheerful disposition are essential for this role as and all of the others advertised by Ski Weekends. To work in most of our roles you will need to be comfortable with meeting and mingling with guests on a regular basis. Teamwork really is the name of the game as getting out on the slopes involves everyone mucking in to get the job done to their high standards.

Head Rep / Driver

If you fill this job position, you will be responsible for co-ordinating the safe and efficient transport of all of our guests using the company minibuses. You will be involved in all guest related services and issues at the club hotel Le Verseau and all other contracted hotels in Brides-les-Bains, as well as the smaller operations they operate in Meribel, La Tania, Mottaret, Tignes and Val d'Isere. More than anything, you will need to be able to help their guests get the most from their holiday and be wowed by both you and SkiWeekends. In a perfect world there are no problems, in reality it is how you deal with problems that makes you stand out.

Snow Academy, part of Harris Holidays Ltd, have been running instructor courses since 1997 and chalet host cookery courses since 2010. Sign up for one of our Snow Academy courses and you could be spending the whole winter living and working in the mountains of Canada or France.

Chalet Host Cookery Courses.

So you want to spend a season in the Alps as a Chalet Host – why would a chalet company choose you out of hundreds of applicants? Enhance your prospects of doing your dream season by enrolling on one of Snow Academy’s Chalet Cookery Courses. We will teach you all about the different aspects of running your own chalet but most importantly you will learn to cook recipes that are quick and easy to prepare, nutritious and tasty. You will be taught how to clean your chalet, how to cook at high altitude, get top tips on how to run your chalet efficiently to maximise your ski time, how to stretch your budget that bit further when shopping, how to do the chalet accounts and you’ll learn about resort life.

We are fortunate enough to run courses in Chalet Gourmets, which offers a spacious fully equipped kitchen. Learning in this environment will help with the understanding of running a real chalet in a real situation.
