Thanks for the info, very useful Got my final departure details this morning, excitement definately kicking in now. One more thing...bit random but I've been caught out before, would it be useful to bring bed linen, duvet stuff? Are they nice and provide it, or is it possible to 'aquire' some...

That means ur getting there a bit b4 every1 else to spruce the place up - dont b 2 shocked at the state of the place - i know it looks a mess but its an organised mess!

yeh thanks for all the tips, no chefs about i can speak to?!

how many other chefs are there, and what positions etc, whats the heirachy like? For some reason everyone has different names instead of commis chef, sous chef chef de partie and head chef/ exec chef etc etc?!

thanks

last yr we had 5 chefs in total (think there was meant 2 b 6 but 1 didnt turn up). That was 2 head chefs, 2 assistant chefs and 1 pastry/dessert chef. Think they dont go in 4 the trad. titles cos every1's expected to muck in in all areas. the 2 assistant chefs will b at training if uve got questions - they r doing Verbier this yr.

hey vicki, i know what you mean about the manuals! i just recieved my handbook today again, its pretty harsh! the thing is tho, i am quite certain these are this way just to kinda put the people who are going for a free ride off the job all together, cause them less hastle in the long run (looking for replacement staff mid season etc) I have never done a season before and i agree about the staff manual, but i still cant wait to get out there. just take a listen to the words of big cheif etc, its hardly like they would talk this well about the place if its a sh*t hole and you never get any time on the slopes! I have only heard good things about the place, and thats what keeps a smile on my face when i think i am gonna be there for 5 months!

Anyone know who's managing the floride this season? Is ed going back? I grew quite fond of the little guy!
( Also need to apologise to him for vomiting all over his bar at the end of last season)

When i signed up mid-September i asked Janet about returners & she didn't mention him. I'm thinking no. Kinda hoped he wud b there as ur never gonna have a more easy-going manager than Ed! Probably end up with a dragon.

At the end of last season he told me he'd be back this year but things always change over the summer - i told him i'd come back and rep the floride but then completely changed my mind and changed companies!
Will be weird to see a different manager in the floride, i'll have to drop in and meet them - true tho, can't imagine you'll have someone as chilled as ed!
