Latest new from the French Alps
Well the snow’s been falling all across the Alps and it looks all set to be a great start to the winter season, so if you are heading out to run a ski chalet , be a ski rep , work in a bar or any cool ski job then you must be madly excited!
Lots of resorts have opened all ready with some opening early and some even opening for free !! Yes Courchevel opens for the season with a free days skiing available if you are out there , so if you are still getting the ski chalet ready but havnt got your pass yet then this is a great chance to head onto the ski slopes
But whats happening out there right now?
Well this is the time of the season that most staff dread , if you are working in a chalet you will probably be doing inventories , practice meals , training , training and more training … generally you will not have your lift pass yet as most resorts may not be fully open … or the company is still getting all the staff passes organised . It can feel quite frustrating if you are out in the snow and you just wanna have fun but you just have to sit tight and get some work done .. the good times are just round the corner .
If you are working for a private bar / restaurant then it could well be open already and you are fueling the hangovers of the workers already in resort , it still feels weird as there are no real “Punters” out yet and if its your first season its difficult to get a real steer on what the job is all about … just wait for your first apres ski with a live band at xmas week , then you will know what to expect !
For those of you who have not sorted ski jobs yet … do not despair , we have a couple more positions available on the site , just CLICK HERE
