Having previously been chalet hosts, we do have the understanding of the chalet couples role first hand. While the roles can be demanding you will have time to relax and enjoy the setting and experience available with a ski season. A typical day starts at 07:30 to prepare breakfast from 08:00. After breakfast, afternoon cake is prepared and laid out. Over breakfast some of the evening can meal prepped and after breakfast the chalet cleaning is done, normally finishing mid morning. For the evening meal, service starts around 17.30-18.00 and is prepared, served and cleared away, normally finishing around 21.00 - 22.00. Once during the week a food shop is done. There is also the normal Changeover day.
