Seasonal Chalet Host Jobs

Ski chalet jobs are a popular way to earn money, experience life in a winter resort, and have great access to skiing and snowboarding during the winter season. There is some hard work involved, and often unsociable hours as you have to be awake before the guests and asleep after they have everything they need, but you should still get enough free time to make the most of the surrounding mountains and snow with many companies giving you plenty of time off to enjoy yourself. Follow this link for a full chalet host job description.

A small chalet taking a family or two may be run by a couple or a few individuals, in which case you could be tasked with cooking and cleaning and much else besides. If you are interested in taking on a small chalet that involves some cooking, but you haven't got the experience, we'd certainly recommend you think about taking a chalet cookery course.

The staff needed to run a ski chalet will cover a wide range of jobs, including chalet cooks, cleaners, and hospitality or hosts. Chalets vary in size, some catering for just a few people, others for several dozen and the bigger the chalet. The size of the chalet will often determine your job role. The more staff required to run the chalet, the more specialised your task. If the chalet takes a lot of people then they will probably need a dedicated chef with a good degree of previous experience.

Daily life

Starting early in the morning, you may be required to see to breakfast. Holiday makers with a long day on the slopes ahead of them are going to need a lot of fuel so dishing out a few bowls of cocoa pops probably isn't going to cut the mustard. After breakfast you are going to be cleaning and getting ready for the evening meal. If you are working on the catering side you will have to spend some of your time shopping for ingredients, especially with the smaller chalets, you will have to do all the budgeting and shopping to make sure nobody goes hungry. And the last thing you want is a ski chalet full of hungry snowboarders! By evening you will either be serving meals to the guests, clearing up at the end of the meal, and setting your alarm clock for breakfast the following morning.

Changeover days

If you are on the chalet host side of the job, you will have the changeover day to deal with, which means cleaning the chalet from top to bottom, between guests departing and new guests arriving. Unless the company you are working for is quite big, they probably won't have their own reps, so that could be your job too. You may be responsible for meeting guests, driving them back to the resort and getting them settled in the chalet. But other than shopping for supplies and changeover days, you can expect the middle of your day to be mostly leisure time. All we would say is take care if you plan to do some skiing. If we had a pound for every time we had an advertiser call us to re-advertise a vacancy because one of their chalet staff had broken a limb(!)

Ski chalets are often luxurious accommodation and almost always situated in stunning locations - some right on the pistes themselves. It may not always be a well paid job, but with your accommodation and meals taken care of, and a resonable amount of free time compared with some other winter jobs (see our comparison guide), finding employment in a chalet is an understandably appealing way to work a season. So, if you are looking to head to the Alps this winter, you could do worse than get yourself a chalet job. For more options of who is currently recruiting, please view the jobs being offered below.
