Job DescriptionOnly dedicated skiers need apply! For 5 days a week, our Ski Hosts accompany our red-run and above standard guests around the mountains, providing a safe and enjoyable service.
What we're looking for:
You'll be a natural leader with excellent customer service skills. Your confidence on the piste (gained from at least 20 weeks' experience on snow) will make you feel at ease in difficult conditions, and will assure the guests that they are in safe hands.

As well as the ski hosting, you are responsible for accompanying guests to and from the airport, taking orders for and purchasing lift passes, and providing a welcoming first impression. You will also dine twice a week in a chalet, helping the hosts with service and clearing away. If numbers for guiding are low, you must be prepared to help in other areas.
Skills and experience:
You need to be a patient and outgoing person with leadership qualities
You should have had at least 20 weeks' skiing experience on snow, although guiding qualifications are not essential
Excellent numeracy skills are essential, and French is a definite advantage
You must hold a valid British/EU passport and National Insurance number.
