Winter Season Chalet Jobs

Getting a job in a chalet is without question the most popular way to get paid to spend a season in a ski resort. This occupation requires less in the way of skills and qualifications than say becoming an instructor, though we find that most of the companies who advertise with us do prefer if you either have some previous experience, or you have genuine transferable skills, such having been employed in hotels or catering firms. Another attraction to ski chalet jobs is the amount of free time it allows you once in resort. Do not for a minute think you will be able to slope off more than you will actually be working, far from it. But you will get some downtime to reward you for the effort you put in to making your guests' time memorable and enjoyable. Thirdly, and perhaps most obviously, the sheer number of ski chalets established to cater for holiday makers, means the demand for staff to run them is always going to be high.

Who can do a ski chalet job?

Basically anyone can apply to work in a ski chalet. The lowest paid role would be at some of the larger chalets or groups of chalets, where they often employ a dedicated cleaner, but quite often, cleaning will form part of the job description for a chalet host. A chalet host is the most popular job title you will come across and refers to someone who effectively runs the chalet for the season, on behalf of the owner. You usually eat, sleep and work within the chalet, running it like a guest house and providing a warm and friendly atmosphere for your guests. If you see a ski chalet job description saying you must be 21 years old, it is likely due to driving age restrictions and driving to collect guests or to buy provisions for the chalet will be one of your many tasks.

Chalet couples

A popular way to run a chalet is to split the daily tasks between the host and the chef. And a good way to improve the chances of the two people working well together is if they already know each other. For this reason you will often see adverts for ski chalet couples. If you have already worked a season as a chalet couple you will significantly increase your chances of employment, but finding couples willing to spend their winter working in a ski chalets isn’t the easiest prospect, so even without direct experience, if you can demonstrate chef and hospitality experience between you, you are still going to find your CV on the maybe pile.
