Detailed Description

We are looking for a couple to work hard when needed, be conscientious but also to enjoy the mountain and the ski resort.  We work hard but we also make sure that we have time to play. 

The couple must have a love of cooking and experience of catering to, at least dinner party level, is essential. The couple must have the ability to work on own initiative, always smiling and happy in front of guests, welcoming, friendly, chatty and accommodating. 

The couple must be willing to take responsibility for hosting the chalet, making sure our guests are well looked after, kitchen hygiene, catering and cleaning to a high standard and able to socialise with the guests etc. You will be providing a cooked breakfast, cakes, pre dinner canapes and 4 course evening meal with wine whilst creating a relaxed dinner party atmosphere.  The chalet will operate a premium service for this chalet, see below for details.


 Other Duties will include the following:


Provide a repping service to the guests, referring enquiries to Chris or Linda where appropriate. This will include getting feedback on how lessons are going and ensuring that the guests are happy throughout their holiday. The repping would also include booking of restaurants, taxis, husky trips etc.

Distribute lift passes to the guests and collect payment, usually credit card details to then be passed to Chris for processing

Provision of premium service:

  Mid week towel change

  Pre dinner drinks and canapes

  Sparkling wine welcome drink

Minor maintenance – anything major will be outsourced

Snow clearance

Keeping the exterior, including log stacks, tidy

Pre determined special cleaning – eg regular fridge cleaning and mid season oven

Anything Ad Hoc that we haven’t thought about!

Our chalet hosts report directly to the owners of the company, Chris and Linda.  They will always be available to discuss any challenges that may occur and will also visit the chalet regularly.  A lot of the guests who stay with La Source have been doing so for many years and have become friends.


If the couple are organised enough and work together well then we normally aim to be out of the chalet by say 10.30/11am and back by 5pm for the evening meal.  The only days we don't normally get out on the piste are Saturdays (change over day) and Tuesdays (shopping day).
