Chalet Cook/Chalet Couple

  • Job Location

    Meribel, 3 Valleys, France

  • Start date

    Late November

  • Duration

    Late April

  • Job Benefits

    We offer a generous package which includes a 3-Valley ski pass (that's a lot of skiing), staff accommodation very near the chalet, food, travel to and from Meribel at the start and end of the season, insurance & equipment hire for the season.


Are you a fantastic cook, with a love of skiing or snowboarding, a great personality, hard-working, trustworthy, reliable, love dealing with people, and excellent in a team or working on your own?  You are?  Then, you're just who we're looking for to come and spend a season with us in the best ski resort in the world.

Meribel Ski Chalets runs 2 catered chalets in Meribel (surprise, surprise), in the heart of the 3 Valleys, which is just an amazing ski area (we challenge you to ski every run during your season).   Our chalets have excellent locations right in the centre of the ski resort, close to the slopes.  The chalets are fully-catered to a high standard, and we aim to consistently give our guests a fantastic holiday experience.  To this end, we need brilliant chalet cooks/hosts to help us to do this.  We believe that if we look after our guests with great food, a relaxed yet professional approach, a spotlessly clean and tidy chalet, and a desire to give them the best possible holiday, then our guests will be happy as they're having the perfect ski holiday, you'll be happy that you've achieved that, and we'll be thrilled that everyone's happy!

We are looking for one chalet cook/host to run our 6/7 guest chalet, and we are looking for a chalet couple (cook plus host, or you might both be cook/hosts) to take charge of our 8/9 guest chalet. You'll be in charge of cooking, cleaning, looking after the guests, and all aspects of ensuring your chalet runs smoothly, and that the guests are happy.  You'll come up with your own exciting, innovative and tasty menus as well as being be able to cater for any guests' food requirements.  You'll have a weekly food budget to work within, and you'll do your own shopping - a once a week trip down the valley.  You'll be cooking in an open-plan kitchen, so you'll need to stay calm in pressure situations, and always keep smiling.  

Meribel Ski Chalets is a family-owned business which has been successfully operating in Meribel for 19 years. We are run on Christian values, with the principles of honesty and integrity underpinning everything we do. We'll look after you well because we realise that if you're enjoying yourself, then the guests will too.  We like to give you responsibility, so we don't micro-manage you, but we are on hand to help when needed.

Check out the requirements and benefits below, and if you think you've got what it takes, if you'd like to have the season of your life, with challenges and fun, then click on the apply button now, and we'll look forward to meeting you as soon as possible.


We believe that what we get out of working in a place like this, is linked to what we put in. We seek like-minded people, who share our values, and who go the extra mile. Are you excited by the prospect of getting into your kitchen each day and bringing one of your masterpieces to life? We are looking for people who have at least one season's experience of working in a cookery/hospitality environment, delivering food that makes the eyes sparkle with expectation and presentation. Originality, creativity, innovation and an eye for detail are the keys to success. You have a superior attention to detail, a desire to leave things better than before, hospitality skills that are second to none, and a willingness to serve.

As well as a previous winter season as a chalet cook, a good, recognised cookery course also sets you apart.

We'll need to see your CV, with date of birth, photo, and whether you hold a valid driving licence.  If you're not a UK or EU national, we'll also need to know your visa situation with regards to working in France.

We'd also like you to enclose  a 6-day menu plan (6 x 3 course evening meals, with canapes) of what you enjoy cooking.

So, what are you waiting for?  Click on the Apply Now button.
