Chalet Couple Job Advice

The following is a generalisation as every employer is different...

If you and your job partner are straight out of college you may find your application is unsuccessful. This isn't simply because of a lack of experience or that an employer will see you as a bigger risk than a more mature couple, but because insurance in places like France make it difficult for employers to cover you if you are below the age of 21.

Be prepared to prepare and serve meals. Lots of meals. A typical chalet may hold 12 guest, all of whom will require breakfast, afternoon tea, and a four course meal in the evening. You aren't working in a stuffy and formal restaurant environment, so you can relax and chat with your guests during meal times, but a lot of chalets get repeat business based on the chalet experience, so your entertaing and cooking skills will have to be good. Check out these popular chalet cookery courses if you don't have any professional cooking experience!

Don't expect to earn a fortune. Like all ski season jobs, working as a chalet couple will not make you rich. You are there for the experience, and for the opportunity to get plenty of time on the ski slope. You will likely get a full day off each week and have a good few hours in the middle of each day where you can amuse yourselves. Once your guests are breakfasted and out of the door, a bit of cleaning and preparation for later will afford you a more relaxed day. Preparation and routine are definitely the way to survive the chalet hosting experience.

Your accommodation and meals will almost always be included as part of the package as will a ski lift pass and ski equipment hire and your travel to and from resort at the beginning and end of the season.
