We run a chalet with a high number of staff allowing each individual time to enjoy the mountains and Alpine environment.

Chalet Host / Driver

typical day A Typical Day in the Job

Staff roles are necessarily flexible to enable time off and provide cover within a team setting. The role will encompass guest assistance, food service and cleaning, chalet cleaning, driving and other duties as they arise.

A working day will probably start with assisting in breakfast service and guest assistance. There may also be snow clearing required outside. The chalet is then cleaned every day once guests depart for activities. Staff take turns on driver duty as we provide drop off / pick up across the resort (five lift areas all within 15 minutes of each other) throughout the day. Guests are welcomed back to the chalet in the late afternoon with afternoon tea. Hosts need to ensure guests can easily find and use the facilities (hut tub, sauna, games, TV room, fire, books, printer etc.) as well as providing drinks from our cocktail bar and cellar as and when requested. Children's dinner is provided in the early evening and the chef will require assistance with service. Service for canapés and Crémant precede dinner. Evening service is followed by kitchen cleaning and breakfast set up.

Every day is different. Every working day is busy. In return we ensure significant time off for staff to enjoy the mountains and recharge.
