Its cold, but because it not really windy it doesn't feel as cold if you know what i mean! And definately doesn't feel too cold after a few shandy's!!
As far as clothes to wear as there seem to be loads of threads about it at the mo - mostly jeans and vest tops/t-shirt top, hoodies etc, but take a couple of dressyish tops - got to the point last year when i was craving to wear a pair of heels but don't bother taking any you would prob never be able to wear them and if you did you would stick out like a sore thumb!!
I was in Courchevel and have to say that the ski olympic boys who were there - i definately would! But thats prob because i got to know them and they were all sweetie pies, in fact the selection accross the company as a whole was pretty spot on!! But the rest of the resort were not bad either!!

Take a duvet too - even though our manager got everyone in our chalet duvets from somewhere i took my own as it said blankets and pillows provided on the kit list and don't think you are guaranteed a duvet. better safe than sorry, those blankets are well itchy! Duvets are well cheap in asda and vacuum packed so take up hardley any space!
And if you work with any aussie be prepared to come home calling them doonas!!!!!!!!

Thanks Amy, now i have an idea of what the winter life is like.... and i like it!! Bring on the SO Boys hehe!!!

Ill make sure to bring a duvet too as being cold when you want to go a bed is the worst feeling in the world, mind you after a few im sure the weather is forgotton!!

So what are the workers chalets like, really crammed??

Hey Ben, I got mine this morning and was exactly the same as you last year! The company is strict in a way as they have to lay down the ground rules otherwise everyone would just take advantage, after all none of us are there to make a career out of our jobs! They know that and so just have to make sure you are willing to work hard in return of the benefits.
As long as you do your job well, there will be no problems.
Although last season my manager, when i had the flu (which my roomate had just had - and had a night and a day off work as a result) my manager took me to one side and said i looked like sh!t, i looked tired and it was obvious I was going out too much! In those words! but she was a one off i reckon and they are def not all like that!

well i sort of guessed they would be quick to lay down the law and as you say your there to work hard to make the guests stay better. and your enjoyment will be better the better you work together as a team and get things done. im wondering whether my immuneness to hangovers in the uk will continue out in the alps. never seem to wake up feeling shitty. umm interesting.

You will be fine! I get the worst hangovers but in the alps i don't!! I either wake up still blind drunk and then sober up without the slightest headache or just wake up feeling fine althogether! Thats what good clean alpine air does for you!!

Puds and Amy - I am yet to receive a manual, and as resident Agony Aunt I think I might need one.. how am i supposed to dish out life advice when i don't even have the manual? I'll have to make it up...

This may be a bit extreme for the alps but.....
My dad is climbing Kilmanjaro in january and he has just started taking some sort of tablets that will reduce altitude sickness - don't know what they are called, he had to get them on prescription. But if its a serious problem to you, you could look into it??!!
