About Colletts Mountain Holidays

Work a season with Collett's in the spectacular Italian Dolomites!

Working in one of the world's most spectacular alpine environments might turn out to be one of the most cherished experiences of your life, but only if you fully understand what we expect of you on a day to day basis.

What We Do  
Collett's is a small, independent holiday specialist, offering half-board, bed & breakfast and self-catering accommodation in three neighbouring villages, each one stunningly set in the spectacular Dolomites of North Italy. People come here to walk at high and medium level altitude, or go even higher on the celebrated Via Ferratas (high level scrambling routes on wires, ladders and bridges). Others come to paint or admire the flora… or just relax in alpine splendour.


Skiing in the Dolomites
If you haven’t skied in the Dolomites then you are in for a treat. The Dolomiti Superki pass covers one of the biggest ski areas in the world. Our village base of Corvara could not be better placed for skiers, with instant access to the world-famous Sella Ronda circuit, which connects five separate valleys in which you can ski, including glacier skiing on the Dolomites highest peak, the Marmolada.

Skiing here is characterised by travelling from village to village, valley to valley, with affordable places to drink and eat on the piste around every corner. Whilst there are one or two hot spots to avoid at certain times of day, the ski system is big enough to mean you don’t end up queuing much at all. And the scenery is just out of this world.

For more information about what Collett’s offer their guests in the winter please read their Ski Holiday pages at colletts.co.uk/tours/winter-skiing-holidays/ You will also find information about Haus Valentin and the village of Badia.

Your Guests
Mainly from the UK, and all English speaking, the guests are generally a middle-aged crowd of ‘outdoor enthusiasts’ who love the mountains in all seasons. More than half of them will have been on a Collett’s holiday before, winter or summer. Their expectation of you, the team on the ground, will be that you are warm and engaging hosts, focused on their comfort and enjoyment, with a genuine interest in helping them get the best from their precious six-day ski holiday with us. For many guests, regardless of the fantastic area in which they are in, it will be you and your teammates who make the holiday for them.  

The Chalet Team
You would be employed and managed by Cristina & Rainer and part of their team at Haus Valentin, but you would share an apartment with the Collett’s Mountain Holidays team. We know you would find them a very friendly and welcoming group, keen to welcome you and show you around the ski area they know and love. Although they are not involved in the domestic side of running Haus Valentin day to day, along with yourself and the rest of the Haus Valentin team, you are all part of a Hosting team looking after the Collett’s guests during their holiday, all working towards the same goal of making the experience as good as it can be for them.   

As for enjoying your free time, you would be free from around 10am until 3:30 pm (between ski Shuttle runs) to get out to enjoy the amazing ski area all around you. Most days one or two other members of the Collett’s team from Haus Valentin or Garni Bracun (our other base in the village of Corvara. 10 km up the valley, connected by piste) would probably be looking for someone to ski with too.
