So Whats everyone going over as? Reps, Hotel, Bar? Any Returners?
I'm going over as rep, hopfully should have a good laugh. Has anyone heard anything from Tui since the traning work book arrived ?

Only thing I'm concerned about is that they havent wrote asking about uniform sizes, and the hire equipment as cant afford to get my own set of skis etc..this season...been on a very tight budget.

last season there was a massive c&^k up with uniform but it shud be sorted for this season, ull probably get it at training.
as for ski hire when u get to resort ull just go down to a hire shop that works with the hotel and get yourself kitted out there.
lucky ba*tards all of ya im not leaving till 6th dec!

Bit unsure about the training as haven't really had that much information about it, Not sure where I'd like, havent realy skied much of France. Have read a few scare stories from last year about Tui/SHG guess though as long as you work hard as well as play hard you'll be fine yeah ?

i think all the dates are different, cos i'm leaving on the 2nd dec for chalet host in courchevel. i called up thomson/crystal/tui about training week and was told it's being held in La Praz for all resort staff.

starting on the day we arrive (Saturday 3rd Dec) straight off the coach into training (quite literally) no slacking for us :angered:

The dude wouldn't give too much information away about training and said you will have to wait until you get there, but mentioned something about a few surprises.....

Apologies if i confuse anyone, but i'm confused myself!

I realise that this is TO's work as they can ship everyone out at the same time but starting to worry now.
Chili did he say it was going to be La Praz for all staff no matter what job?

The dude said it's going to be for all staff, i presume from chalet staff to chefs, not sure on ski reps? i've heard ski reps are arriving earlier for extra training. I'm going to be chalet hosty so i know it'd include that job role.

If you're doing a different job i would give them a call to clarify. if you're on the coach like i am, all you have to do is sit there and be driven to your destination, can't go wrong (i hope). They're helpful guys, but seem secretive on content of training course!?

So Barny what's your jobby and location going to be??

Yeah it seems new reps are arriving earlier I leave London next Wednesday, for France as of yet they havent decided final locations for us have been told they decide during training.

I'm off as a rep as you can tell from the above, glad its here now been waiting since August when I had my assesment.

I take it, its just us reps that don't know their resorts until training?

Really not looking forward to the coach journey, oh well a pillow, ipod full of tunes and ear plugs I'll be fine

I remember something being said at interview about they like to match the person to resort. Oh well I intend to have a great time where ever I'm put, if theres a mountain and snow I'm a happy bunny.

I am with you Chili, and ending up with you Mouther. Courchevel 1850 Chanteperdrix, leaving on the 2nd. Haven't seen the letter yet confirming, probably because my references have stiffed me ;-) or that i am away from my contact address
