We are looking for a chalet host couple to become part of our small team here at Ski La Source. We work hard but also make sure that we have time to enjoy the mountain and the ski resort.
One member of the couple must be either a chef or have high level catering experience. The other member of the couple will be in charge of making sure the chalet is run well and clean. Both members of the couple must have the ability to work on own initiative, conscientious, be self-motivated, always smiling and happy in front of guests, welcoming, friendly, chatty, accommodating and enjoy skiing or snowboarding.
The couple must be willing to take responsibility for hosting the chalet, making sure our guests are well looked after, kitchen hygiene, catering and cleaning to a high standard and able to socialise with the guests etc. You will be providing a cooked breakfast, cakes, pre dinner canapes and 4 course evening meal with wine whilst creating a relaxed dinner party atmosphere.
Other Duties will include the following:
Provide a repping service to the guests, referring enquiries to Chris or Linda where appropriate. This will include getting feedback on how lessons are going and ensuring that the guests are happy throughout their holiday. The repping would also include booking of restaurants, taxis, husky trips etc.
Distribute lift passes to the guests and collect payment, usually credit card details to then be passed to Chris for processing
Mid week towel change
Pre dinner drinks and canapes
Sparkling wine welcome drink
4 course dinner which includes a cheese course
Checking and, when necessary, adding chemicals/emptying/cleaning of hot tub or sauna
Minor maintenance – anything major will be outsourced
Keeping the exterior, including log stacks, tidy
Dry stores stock checks before shopping
Pre determined special cleaning – eg regular fridge cleaning and mid season oven
Anything Ad Hoc that we haven’t thought about!
Our chalet hosts report directly to the owners of the company, Chris and Linda. They will always be available to discuss any challenges that may occur and will also visit the chalet regularly. A lot of the guests who stay with La Source have been doing so for many years and have become friends.
If the couple are organised enough and work together well then we normally aim to be out of the chalet by say 10.30/11am and back by 5pm for the evening meal. The only days we don't normally get out on the piste are Saturdays (change over day) and Tuesdays (shopping day).
