Summer 22: We serve hearty delicious home cooked style food. Suitable for active individuals upon return from a day climbing, mountain biking, hiking (mixture of buffet service and plated service). Simple hearty home cooked food.

OPTIONAL Winter 23: To continue working with us throughout winter you will need to have a higher standard of cuisine. Here you will have full input into menu creation and wine selection to compliment your great food. You will have had significant restaurant standard cooking background and the ability to create and deliver high quality 'fine dining' dishes in winter (6 day meal plan covering breakfast, afternoon tea/cakes & canapes, and a three course meal).

THE HOSTESS/MANAGER will be a warm, friendly, outgoing, well presented, organised individual with an eye for detail. You are responsible for creating a great holiday atmosphere and ensuring the chalet is well presented and meets our high cleaning standards, which involves daily cleaning duties and managing external cleaning staff if and when required during peak times.

Your role involves the coordination of daily bed changes in line with our online booking system, managing dinner numbers, the management of linen stocks with our laundrette, the honesty bar, client check out payments, general cleanliness of the chalet. In busy periods an additional cleaner will be able to help you as well.

OPTIONAL WINTER 23 your role involves a higher degree of personal interaction with the clients and you will both be responsible for providing in-valley transfers to and from the slopes in our 8 seater minibuses. This means you will need to be confident and competent drivers.
