As a Chalet Host at Ski Cuisine you are able to run your chalet with your own individual style. We employ professionals experienced in the hospitality industry and private catering. We trust your professional eye and instincts when presenting your chalet and hosting our guests. Your style and flare is reflected in the way you lay your table to the little charming touches that you add to the bedrooms and bathrooms. We encourage your creativity and trust that you know how to make our guests feel at home and spoil them with your attention to detail. Guests are left with fond memories of their holiday and blown away by the excellence of your service. This is why we have such a high number of returning guests year upon year. This is what makes us stand out from our competitors. Your hard work is rewarded with job satisfaction, the chance to meet new and interesting people and lots of ski and social time in one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the world.
